Bend Moms for Moms: The online encyclopedia and social networking site for Bend moms | Modern Moms | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Bend Moms for Moms: The online encyclopedia and social networking site for Bend moms

Bend Moms for Moms is a website where mothers can connect and discuss their everyday lives while taking care of a family.

Bend Moms for Moms is a free social network with more than 750 active members/users connecting and discussing the joys and grievances of motherhood in a very local and relevant context.

Launched in September 2010 by local mother Sarah Daily, Bend Moms for Moms provides a safe and supportive forum for mothers to discuss everything from play dates to potty training, prenatal fitness, learning disabilities, practicing patience, doctor and school recommendations, and free things to do with kids in Bend.


 

The site also hosts user-generated groups where moms can meet over common issues and activities, such as breastfeeding, home education, marathon running, cooking, local eating, snow sports and paddling. There is also a ‘Marketplace’ where moms can sell, buy and trade goods and a ‘Shop Mom!’ business directory where users are encouraged to support local mothers in business.

Daily is hoping that the connection started online will also be nurtured offline and around town. To help, she is planning to host several Bend Moms for Moms events in the coming months, including a charity event “Mommy Mingle” on June 1-2.
