Twitter parties and chats are a great opportunity to connect other women who have the same questions as you. For new and expectant moms, social media can allow you to connect with professionals and get answers to your burning questions—directly from an expert.
Many are regular weekly chats, others are
monthly or created around a special occasion like Mother’s Day. For many moms
who are feeling isolated or have little family support, social media can be a
very important tool—finding advice, support and even new friendships. Often chat are sponsored as well and it’s a fun way to be introduced to new products and even have a chance to win something. Here are a few of our favorite chats for expecting and new moms.
