Would you like to be featured on the Happy With Baby blog?

Are you a mom (or dad) with a story to tell? Are you also a professional with valuable expertise to share with other new or expecting parents? If so, I'd love to feature your written guest post on the Happy With Baby blog! *Please make sure to read all details below before submitting.

Here's what we're looking for...

We believe that every mom has a story to tell.

Nothing helps us moms more than the support we get from connecting with other moms and dads who have been through it. 

That's why personal stories are so powerful. 

I love connecting with therapists and other professionals and experts in their fields, so that we can exchange what we know to support even more new and expecting parents.

My blog publishes weekly on Wednesdays (and sometimes twice a week, when doing a special push for a particular theme). I have niche following of more than 500 email subscribers and more than 1400 followers on social media. 

We prioritize the publishing of guest blogs during the months of May (when we promote the theme of Maternal Mental Health Awareness) and November (when we promote the theme of Gratitude). Other guest submissions that don't fit into those themes will be worked into our regular publishing calendar at our discretion.

We do not compensate you for your contribution, but we do promise to put your piece in front of as many readers as we can.

You will still own the copyright to your work, but your piece will become a part of Happy With Baby's evergreen content (meaning, it will continue to be accessible to new readers for as long as Happy With Baby exists). We will share your post with our following and appreciate you sharing it with yours as well.

My readers love to feel validated and learn from other parents that have been there, like you.
