Our Launch Party would not be what it is without our partnership with WestCoast Families magazine!
The lucky winner of our Cover Kid Contest will participate in a special cover photo shoot and have his or her adorable face appear on the cover of WestCoast Families magazine on a 2013 issue. We’re so jealous that our own kids can’t participate!
This magazine is the longest running, largest family publication in the Greater Vancouver area, celebrating 20 years in 2012, and serving all regions of the Lower Mainland with 50,000 copies printed each issue, 9 times per year! This free resource for local parents, and a key marketing avenue for family-focused companies, is jam-packed with important information on family travel, health, education, cool finds, parenting, and more.
WestCoast Families magazine works with many local organizations and writers to ensure that their content is relevant and valuable to their readers. Some of the magazine’s most popular features include their Community Calendar, Camp Guides, rotating sections called WestCoast Mom, WestCoast Dad and WestCoast Grandparents, and their annual Baby Guide, now in its 13th year.

WestCoast Families magazine strives to be THE Lifestyle guide for local, active, urban families, and we think they’ve hit the mark!
Simply Merino is quickly becoming a favourite sponsor of Modern Mama events!
Founded by Jill Wood, local mom of three, Simply Merino is based in Canada & specializes in sleepwear & playwear for infants, babies & kids made from 100% New Zealand Merino wool.
Merino wool is naturally flame resistant, incredibly soft, comfortable, healthy to wear, and is a sustainable product. Simply Merino‘s line is simple and practical for growing babies and kids!
When we had a chance to check out Jill’s clothing in person at an event last fall, we were amazed that wool could be so soft to the touch. We also appreciated the thoughtful features of a number of her pieces, including thumb holes in the sleeves of thermal tops to keep wrists warm when kids pull their gloves on!
