To offer a more comprehensive look at parenting today, BabyCenter welcomes some of the most influential and trusted voices in the social media community to its Momformation masthead. Top bloggers such as Sherry and John Petersik (Young House Love), Liz Gumbinner and Kristen Chase (Cool Mom Picks), Marie LeBaron (Make and Takes), Catherine McCord (Weelicious), Whitney Moss and Heather Flett (Rookie Moms), Alicia Rockmore and Sarah Welch (Get Buttoned Up), Elina Furman (Mamaista), Allison Czarnecki (Petit Elefant), and Kami Bigler (No Biggie) will join beloved Momformation regulars such as Betsy Shaw, Carolyn Robertson, Joyce Slaton, Denise Cortes, former Babble blogger Whit Honea and Amy Graff, who pens one of the top blogs for the San Francisco Chronicle. These well-known new bloggers will contribute tips on food, home design, crafts and activities, life organization, beauty and fashion, product reviews, and giveaways. BabyCenter lifestyle and trend experts Laurie Gelman and Moms and the City (Denise Albert, Melissa Gerstein and Raina Seitel Gittlin) will also join Momformation, covering motherhood and celebrities.

“The new Momformation brings the voice of modern motherhood to life on BabyCenter. Its mix of humorous and touching stories, newsy parenting items, and useful tips on everything from what to make for dinner to how to keep your house from looking like a daycare makes it an addictive daily treat for our moms,” says Linda Murray, editor in chief of BabyCenter.

Momformation’s new visually compelling design allows users to easily connect with its more than 30 bloggers, discover new content, and navigate through four distinct channels:

“We’re thrilled to be part of BabyCenter, an established brand that means so much to millions of moms all around the world,” says Liz Gumbinner, publisher and editor-in-chief of Cool Mom Picks. “We look forward to the chance to bring our recommendations to a new audience of moms who don’t want the same old-same old for their kids.”

“As new parents and fans of BabyCenter, John and I jumped at the chance to be regular contributors on the new Momformation. It’s a great opportunity to let parents everywhere know that having a baby doesn’t mean losing your style (or your mind),” says Sherry Petersik, co-founder of popular home design blog Young House Love.

BabyCenter also announced today the creation of the BabyCenter Blog Network, a handpicked group of 50 to 100 mom and dad bloggers from all stages of parenthood. In addition to serving as guest bloggers on Momformation, they’ll be eligible to participate in interactive marketing programs with BabyCenter and its many marketing partners.
