Suggested by Jessica Goodrich

A must have service for moms in LA - it is crazy competitive her for schools. You wouldn't believe how useful this site and book are for LA moms.

Christina Simon: Thank you, Jessica for nominating our book! Christina

Matt Steiner: Beyond the Brochure is THE definitive, all-encompassing guidebook for private school admissions in Los Angeles. Having an educational company that depends on the expertise of peer institutions and professionals to work with our clients, I regularly recommend Christina's seminars and her book to anxious private school applicants. :)

rachbeth24: Beyond the Brochure opens up the hidden world of LA private schools to moms and dads who are seeking admission to these schools. They do an amazing job of helping parents navigate through this maze, make the process transparent and save moms and dads lots of stress, anxiety and worry.

Suggested by Christina Simon

Club MomMe, founded by two talented moms, Rachel and Lane, is a club for moms and moms-to-be as well as a great resource for moms who want to meet other moms and learn about parenting tips, baby products and more!

Matt Steiner: Club MomMe is an incredible resource for families in Los Angeles and Chicago who are navigating the many mystifying nuances of parenthood. I personally have enjoyed and participated in informational Club MomMe events pertaining to schooling, child development, and parent education. A FABULOUS resource.

Charity Allen Winters: Club MomMe has been the #1 RESOURCE that has helped me survive, successfully navigate & thrive in the 1st year of being a NEW PARENT in the huge city of Los Angeles, away from family. I wish every new Mom could be a part of a Club MomMe in their town! God bless my favorite founding MOMMEs, Rachel & Lane for their wonderful work with MomMes, Daddies & Little ones!

Ali Swanson: Club MomMe is notable because of its fabulous founders, Lane and Rachel, who provide both resources and support to moms and moms-to-be. It's obvious that they geniunely care about their Club members, as demonstrated by the fact that they often personally reach out via email or in-person to make sure that their MomMes have access to everything they need, including, but not limited to, gear reviews, a social network, and encouraging hugs!

Jamie Pudney Russo: If Patty was the first customer, I must have been the second :-) I also love MoxieJean! She summed it up perfectly.

Lorena and Missy, LA Moms Dig

lamomsdig.com

10 votes

Suggested by Jessica Goodrich

A favorite resource for many of my LA mom friends. Go LA mompreneurs!

Matt Steiner: For lack of a better comparison, LA Moms Dig is a better, more targeted 'Yelp' for parents who depend on the integrity of other parents' recommendations for resources (e.g. child-centered events, medical professionals, educational resources, etc). Lorena and Missy have their fingers on the pulse of what LA moms are on the hunt for (and can't find on their own!).

rachbeth24: LA Moms Dig lets all moms share their favorite places, resources and more with other moms in a quick and easy fashion. Great site with two lovely founders!
