Social Media for Motherhood

New moms have never been more connected than in this age of gizmos and gadgets. To further support this statement, local mother Beth Bryan and her business partner, Jillian Darlington, have co-founded a hub for mothers of all kinds to be able to connect with each other, schedule play dates, and share their experiences of motherhood. The app also allows for vendors with businesses aimed at parents to create profiles accessible to users.

Beth is a wife and mother of two who balances her life in Encinitas with her business, MomCo – the app that brings mothers together. After meeting Jillian and discovering the initial idea, Beth immediately saw the value that the MomCo app could provide. She remembered how hard it was when she moved to Florida a few months before she found out about her pregnancy. After experiencing that kind of isolation, Beth decided to put her effort into making sure mothers are always able to connect with local mothers and businesses.

When discussing the importance of mothers being able to connect with one another, Beth related, “It is so important that moms build a ‘mama tribe’ that will support them when they are low and celebrate them when they shine.” Many other mothers certainly agree with this idea because after the soft-launch in San Diego, hundreds of mothers signed up for the app. The app has since had a national release and is available to download for iPhone and Android.
