Moms & Moms-to-be

ThirdPath Institute is a pioneering nonprofit organization based in Philadelphia that gives parents the tools they need to strike the balance they’re looking for between work life and family life.  ThirdPath also does a lot of other progressive work on social policy and helping employers to design creative work-life balance solutions to maximize employee efficiency, productivity and morale.

This organization, Postpartum Support International, promotes research, education and public awareness of the relationship between childbirth and women’s emotional health.

Dads & Daughters is a little-known nonprofit gem.  It promotes research and awareness of the link between strong, healthy father-daughter relationships and girls’ self -esteem.  Dads & Daughters gives families great ideas and tools for strengthening connections that nourish the selves of young women.

When you’re feeling trapped at home with your little one, this is a great way to get out of the house, meet other moms, and get some exercise without worrying about childcare.  One Fit Mama offers bring-your-baby stroller fitness classes all over suburban Philadelphia in non-gym settings.  It also hosts lots of neat educational and social events for moms.

Eating Disorders
