What has the reaction been so far from mothers who use it?
We have received an amazing amount of feedback from moms who are excited that someone has finally launched a site like Mom Meet Mom. There is literally nothing like it out there operating on a similar scale or that matches moms as effectively.
How does the site go about matching mothers?
We use an advanced matching algorithm similar to those used by high-profile dating sites. It was created by our developers under the oversight of Julia High, who has a background in computational neuroscience. Location is only one element of the algorithm. Mom Meet Mom users answer questions about themselves and their families, and their answers are weighted based on whether they feel certain criteria is important or unimportant.
Why is it important for moms to connect to one another?
When you become a mother, the need to connect with other moms becomes a priority. Only another mom can really understand the stress of caring for a newborn or parenting a toddler. Moms know what it’s like to be bone-tired and up with a sick kid or deal with a teen who suddenly hates the whole world. Whether you’re feeling defeated or celebrating a new milestone, there’s nothing like having the support of a network of mom friends … Our goal in creating Mom Meet Mom was to make sure that every mother has a group of like-minded moms she can turn to for conversation, advice and help.
