Mom Resources From Some of the Remarkable Women in the 30SecondMom Tribe!

Whether you’re a first-time mom or have a houseful of kids, motherhood can be challenging, joyful, overwhelming, wondrous and stressful – sometimes all at once! That’s why moms need support to navigate through it. We’ve gathered some remarkable women who have a passion for helping moms, and we’re fortunate to call them 30Second Mom contributors as well!

Who We Love:
Jillian Darlington is a single mom to a son, and she’s an expert in the work-at-home lifestyle. Beth Bryan is a California-based mom of two.

Why We Love Them:
Jillian and Beth are co-founders of the MomCo App. The free, geo-location based app helps moms connect with other moms and with the products and services they need. Since MomCo is geo-location based, moms that live closest show up first. Moms can interact by messaging each other and through the forum section. Moms can share pictures, funny moments, ask questions, get the support, arrange playdates, keep current with local events and activities, be alerted of product recalls, enter giveaways, view awesome products they deem “mom must-haves” and save money through deals. They can also locate all the local business and service providers in their area that cater to women and children. What’s not to love?!

Check out MomCo App here, and be sure to follow Jillian and Beth on Twitter. Read some of their great 30Second Mom tips!

Who We Love:
Eirene Heidelberger is a certified parent coach and the mother of three boys.

Why We Love Her:
Eirene is the President and CEO of GitMom, a full-service parent coaching firm that’s dedicated to helping moms “get it together.” Her system focuses on the mom, rather than the kids, which allows moms to give their children the parenting they need so they have time to do the activities they enjoy. Eirene assists moms with all types of parenting issues – sleep training, positive behavior, scheduling, etc. – all with the ultimate goal of returning mom back to her formal “pre-child” self. She teaches moms to parent more efficiently so they have more “me” time. We love it!
