Julia, Christa and I have been on quite the journey with Mom Meet Mom. We had a vision, followed our hearts, listened to all of you, and bam! We created something pretty awesome.
Our Boston Beta was such a remarkable experience and the feedback and ideas that flooded in from hundreds of enthusiastic moms was invaluable. We are now truly able to build something that you all asked for. Below is our press release and some links to other recent news coverage. If you haven’t signed up for Mom Meet Mom yet, get on it!

Mom Meet Mom Expands Nationwide
Mom-led Startup Leverages Dating Site Features to Match Like-Minded Local Mom Friends
Mom Meet Mom, a women-owned startup, today announced the nationwide beta launch of its online social platform that connects like-minded, local moms with one another. The website was created by three mom co-founders, Julia High, Christa Terry, and Meg Gerritson, and launched in Boston on Mother’s Day. After experiencing rapid growth – with hundreds of new users – Mom Meet Mom is expanding nationwide. The website helps moms meet and plan playdates by finding other mothers and caregivers whose children, schedules, parenting styles, family challenges, and personalities are most alike.
“We saw an immediate need to bring location and compatibility technology – similar to Zillow and Match.com – to the mom demographic,” said High. “We know from experience that both new moms and moms of older kids are desperate to get out and get social with their peers, but it’s not always easy to meet other mothers in the neighborhood. We’re changing the way moms meet so every mom has a chance to lead an active social life and forge a strong network of support.”
Following a model similar to high-profile dating sites, Mom Meet Mom’s specially-designed geo-mapping and social-matching features take the guesswork and anxiety out of finding and meeting moms locally. As mothers, the founders of Mom Meet Mom are personally invested in helping moms build local support networks. The site was created to provide a solution to the many challenges moms face when parenting and trying to stay social; including scheduling conflicts, food allergies, maintaining work-life balance, raising kids as a single parent, and coping with autism, diabetes, or other health concerns.
“Our Boston-area beta was extremely successful, and the feedback we continue to receive from our early adopters is phenomenal,” said Terry. “We are really excited to expand our beta and to provide the same one-of-a-kind experience to moms across the country.”
During its nationwide launch, Mom Meet Mom will continue to enhance the site’s personality-matching and geo-location technology while rolling out a variety of additional features.
