We caught up with co-founder and chief content officer Rory Halperin about what to know about this top-tier resource for new and expectant parents.

What should expectant and new parents know about you and your business?

Mommy Nearest is the all-in-one parenting resource designed to help parents feel more confident—whether they’re looking for local things to do with their kids or national content that speaks to a particular moment along the parenting journey, Mommy Nearest provides the support that they’re looking for and in a moment’s notice. Our website and mobile app help parents spend less time searching and more time doing what matters most: enjoying time with their children. The app geo-locates parents and shows them the closest family-friendly places that they might be looking for! Places are rated and reviewed by other local parents, thus layering in trust that is essential for a parent’s ability to make the best decision for their child. Mommy Nearest also sends out weekly newsletters to help keep NYC parents in the loop with everything cool and new going on!

What’s new (in the past year) with your business?

Our events have really expanded in the past year! Whether we’re offering a free event as part of our Mommy Nearest Playdate series at a local play space or museum, or hosting a panel discussion about raising kids in NYC at a new luxury building, we’re always looking for new ways to offer our readers unique experiences. Parents can sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media to learn more about our events!

In addition to our 15 core cities, we’re also publishing content about the best things to do with kids in cities all across the country—think Nashville, Austin, Charleston, Indianapolis—so parents can use Mommy Nearest as a resource no matter where they are in the U.S.!

Which topics do you enjoy connecting with new and expectant parents about most?

We always like to hear from our readers about their favorite things to do with their kids—especially if they know about a new park, playground, exhibit, play space or kid-friendly restaurant. Moms and dads (and aunts, uncles, grandparents and caregivers!) can always add their favorite family-friendly spots to our database here. It’s a great way to share all of the places you love with other local families!

Anything else you’d like to add?

Parents can find local “specials” on our website and app from family-friendly business, which list timely promotions and deals! It’s a great way to learn about special events, discounted tickets to shows, free story times and more.
