I wanted to get Moms out of the house again!  Moms spend so much time second-guessing themselves as Mothers, wishing they had more mom-friends, and feeling isolated at home on maternity leave.  Let’s get out and enjoy being  women, but stay attached to our babies!

I have three girls and started Modern Mama in Spring of 2008 in Edmonton, Alberta.

So let’s meet.  Let’s go get a coffee, learn from an expert about beauty, fashion and definitely, parenting.

We have opportunities available for you:

– Write for us; locally-focused content relevant to moms of 0-5 year olds in Toronto
– Help us plan community events for moms

Who we are. What we do. Why we do it.

Modern Mama is about “getting moms out of the house”. Being a mom on maternity leave, a stay-at-home-mom, a working mom, a single mom; whether you have one child or five, the common thread is that it’s difficult to find time for yourself, and motherhood can feel isolating and overwhelming at times.

We believe that although motherhood adds a new dimension to who you are and it changes many aspects of our daily lives, it can’t replace our old selves – meaning we still need fun, friendship and some ‘me-time’ in our lives. Modern Mama aims to help you get out and get that support, connecting you with other moms who might share the same interests, and at the same time, provide that much-needed ‘me-time’!

Modern Mama loves and supports new moms.  Through our services for expecting and new moms, we are a resource for moms in five major Canadian Cities through the first years of motherhood.
