iVillage revealed a special preview of Momtourage, a new online initiative featuring the people, organizations, and businesses that help moms manage the pressures of everyday life. A sneak peak of the program, which will launch this July, is available now on iVillage's Pregnancy and Parenting Channel, http://www.ivillage.com/momtourage. The initiative will be a two-way dialogue with mothers and invites them to make iVillage a valued member of their Momtourage.
"No mom goes it alone," said Carla Drysdale, Managing Editor at iVillage, the first and largest community of women online. "A Momtourage gives mothers the village they need to help them raise their kids every day," said Ms. Drysdale, who counts her husband and the women she met online as part of her Momtourage. "They're the people who allow us to navigate and conquer the jumble of responsibilities, circumstances, and choices that make up our lives and we hope to help women make iVillage an important member of their Momtourage."
Not only will iVillage be sharing information and parenting advice with moms as part of Momtourage, it will also invite them to join the conversation. Real moms will be highlighted as part of the iVillage Momtourage initiative talking about who they rely on for support and giving advice based on personal successes. The iVillage Momtourage program will feature mom-on-the street videos as well as handy information about how to choose babysitters and childcare groups; make cleaning a household activity; join community cooking groups; and tips for unwinding after it all. iVillage will also be holding a Momtourage sweepstakes over the summer to further help moms and their Momtourages.
"With our new initiative devoted to the Momtourage we hope to further our goal of helping women strengthen the bonds that make it so much easier to succeed in all the aspects of motherhood," said Diane Randall, Pregnancy and Parenting Channel Editorial Director for iVillage. "Through this process, we hope that iVillage will continue to be an important part of women's Momtourages and their daily lives."
