An online argument between two women in a Sydney mothers' group has ended with both in hospital after a brawl.

Police claimed the verbal argument escalated despite bystanders trying to intervene, with the "women pushing, slapping, pulling hair before they both fell to the ground and were briefly unconscious".

Both women required treatment at hospital.

It's understood that one of the women was taken for scans for a possible brain injury.

The other was treated for a shoulder injury and for cuts, bruises and swelling to her arms, upper body and neck.

A Personal Violence Order was taken out by police for one woman against the other.

Investigations continue.
