We are teachers

We’ve partnered with the world’s leading pregnancy, parenting and lifestyle experts to help you thrive. That’s why we’ve launched a series of quick, easy, informative and expert-driven on demand classes to help you with topics from early pregnancy to the toddler years and beyond. On demand classes you can trust from experts we’ve carefully vetted.

We are shoppers

Motherhood requires things — clothes to wear, tools to use, products to pamper and gear to make your life a little easier. We are constantly on the hunt for products and services we think will be valuable to you and only recommend the things we would gift to our very best friend. Mom-to-mom, we’re looking out for you.

We are advocates

We conduct original research into the challenges and needs of modern mothers, enabling us to advocate on behalf of this new generation of parents. We work for change in society, in government and in corporate culture. When women come together for change, we make things happen. That’s why we sponsor the annual State of Motherhood Survey where we go deep with today’s modern mamas and uncover what women are truly wrestling with so we can champion for the kinds of change in our society, our government and in our world that mothers deserve.

We are a team on a mission

Writers, editors, video producers, social media experts, finance leaders, HR leaders, and an army of medical experts make up our team.
