Resource Educator for New Moms

You’ll help a family identify and build their support network by coaching moms about opportunities like playgroups, explaining the role of a mother’s helper and how they can find one, how to organize a sitter trade opportunity, and how to access other community resources that they may not yet know about. You’ll be specially trained on community resources and then visit new parents once or twice before meeting the next parents.

Is This the Right Fit for Me?

You’re a bit of a “connector” and love telling people about things you think they’ll enjoy or will find helpful. You’re proud of the resources our community offers, and you want to be sure people know to access them. You’re not as interested in getting to know new parents over several months, but making one or two visits to share helpful information and resources. You’re energized by connecting people to a set of tools that will you know will help them out.

What Others are Saying

“This role lets me connect a mom or family with the opportunities available from a variety of resources, not just MomsBloom. I love watching a mom's eyes come to life, through that postpartum haze, when she learns of the resources available to her and her family, no matter her situation. Puts a smile on my face every time! From educating and comforting mom to holding and loving that baby...there is nothing better! I fall in love every time.”
