Moms… We need to support one another and help out in any way we can. Right!?
There is a new resource now that I want to tell you about. And, in order to tell you about it, I decided to get it straight from the source and ask the founder, Michelle Brown, a few questions about it. It is called ihelpmoms.com.
Me: Let’s start at the beginning… What is ihelpmoms.com?
Michelle: Ihelpmoms.com is a one stop, nationwide solution for moms to SEARCH, SHOP and SHARE!
- Moms can search for lactation consultants, cleaning services, mothers helpers, pediatricians, lactation consultants, birthday party entertainers and MORE.
- Moms can BUY and SELL used baby gear do decrease waste and recycle!
- Finally moms can find moms groups in their area to connect with to fight postpartum depression and get out of the house.
Ihelpmoms.com is an online rolodex for moms to help Make Motherhood Easier.
Me: Why did you start the website?
Michelle: I started ihelpmoms.com after I delivered my baby girl and had a very hard time recovering. I was new to Florida, so I didn’t know where to turn for help, my husband had to go back to work and my own family was 3,000 miles away. I was unable to pick up my daughter and post partum depression started to settle in. In these dark moments I decided to turn my helplessness into HOPE for moms everywhere. No mom should have to go through motherhood alone and ihelpmoms.com is revolutionizing the way moms can easily access helping hands in their area.
Me: Awesome! So, by “helping hands”, do you mean that moms will be able to find sitters on ihelpmoms.com?
Michelle: That is a great question! There are many websites that already focus on babysitting. ihelpmoms.com is unique in the fact I believe there are SO many other services that moms can benefit from. ihelpmoms.com connects moms to a wide variety of helping hands from night nurses to assist with newborn care and sleep, to therapists to help families emotionally with the transition of a growing household to fitness trainers to professionals such as pediatric dentists and chiropractors. Everything that moms need to make motherhood easier!
Me: If there was one thing you would want people to know about the site, what would it be?
Michelle: Supermom does not exist. Motherhood is a journey to be treasured and I believe that health and happiness can be achieved by seeking helping hands and experts to make motherhood easier. ihelpmoms.com is the answer for moms to attain balance in life, to save money and make money through our go green baby gear section and to connect with like minded moms.
Me: I see on the site that it is free for moms to join, but there is a premium section that has a fee to it. What are the benefits to getting a premium membership?
Michelle: It is completely FREE for moms to search for help from providers, to buy and sell baby gear, enjoy our mom confessional blog and to find moms groups. The benefits to a premium membership include access to providers contact information, schedules, view skills and certifications and reviews by moms!
Me: Sounds great! You can do so much with just the free membership. Am I understanding correctly that the only thing missing from the free membership is seeing provider information? It is huge to be able to see reviews from other moms and get provider contact info, so that would be worth the membership cost!
Michelle: That is correct! I am proud to say that I am much less expensive for a premium membership than the other mommy babysitting service sites! After my own difficult birth and delivery, I know what it feels like to need help fast at an affordable cost. I made sure to make ihelpmoms.com accessible for moms that need a helping hand.
If you have a business that can help moms and families, make sure you sign up as a provider!
Me: Why do you think my readers should join ihelpmoms.com?
Because it is FREE! Moms have everything to gain by joining this website designed for moms by moms to Make Motherhood Easier!
Once a mom goes to the site and registers, where would you suggest they start?
I designed ihelpmoms.com to be easy to navigate as I often find myself sleep deprived chasing after a toddler and 5 months pregnant! The easier the site, the better for a mom like me!
For moms that are looking for help from professional providers, they can easily click on the SEARCH or FIND a provider button. For moms that want to Buy or Sell baby gear, they can click on SHOP or BUY/SELL baby gear. For moms that are looking for moms to connect with, they can click MOMS GROUPS.
