Yesterday Babble featured the top 50 celebrity moms that are on twitter, and I had this genius revelation that I should make my own list of the top MOMS on twitter that I think SHOULD be celebrities!
Although coming up with 50 would have probably been impossible for me, coming up with 30 wasn’t too hard!
So, here are the top 30 Twitter Moms that I think should be Celebrities!
30) @MumtoEve – Bess as I know her is an awesome Mom. She recently just had a VBAC and is not tweeting as much as she was since giving birth, but still a great resource to twitter, and the childbirth community, especially being a VBAC mom herself!
29) @fyuree – Michael Robertson a friend of mine in real life who actually joined after I encouraged her to one night. The mother of 3, 2 born at home with a midwife, and one a natural hospital birth experience she is a great advocate! She authors her own blog called Is This Co-Parenting? As she is a Navy wife often faced with Deployment and late nights.
28) @ICANGrowPeople – Lori Says ” I started my blog I Can Grow People to keep my family informed about my pregnancy, but it has evolved into a place where I talk openly about my struggles and triumphs in parenthood–all while attempting to retain my sense of humor!” Check out her blog I Can Grow People.
27) @Crunchymummy - Jody is aStay at home mom of 1 and another on the way. Doing her best to eat, sleep, play, parent, and live more naturally. Particularly passionate about all things birth and baby related check out her website Natural Childbirth Stories.
26) @TheMommyologist – Mary is a witty blogger I stumbled upon on Twitter because we both found ourselves living in Connecticut. Her website The Mommyologist is cute beyond belief and witty to say the least! Check her out!
25) @Lynda – Lynda pretty simple to remember right? Unlike most of the bloggers and Mothers I have included before, she is not as much of a birth junkie as the rest. She is a great photographer, and overall a great person. Check out her blog The Daily Window.
24) @ToniRaquel – Toni is one of the first twitter moms I became friends with when first getting into the world of Twitter. She is a Polaroid loving, natural birth advocate, breastfeeding advocate, married mother to Lucy. We have been trying to convince her to start a blog! LOL
23) @Beniceprenatal – Cynthia Lin is part owner in Be Nice Prenatal vitamins, and a great and hysterical Mom on twitter! She has two children, ages 2 and 5 and a full time, corporate job. On the side, she says “I promote Be Nice prenatal vitamin drink mix and support all pregnant and breastfeeding mothers!” Check out Be Nice Prenatal Vitamins.
22) @GretaBlau – Greta is a local mother to me, I also met her on twitter through a great local midwife I know. Greta had a home birth with her son, and is a great resource to the childbirth community. I have been trying to encourage her to start her own blog, but in the mean time we can read what she has to say on BirthActivist.com.
21) @CTMayor – Tracy AKA The Mayor of Crazy Town is a hysterical Mom I met on twitter. She is a pistol, think twice before you say something to her, as she is good with one liners and comebacks! Check out her Website The Mayor of Crazy Town.
20) @AintYoMamasBlog – Aimee – I stumbled across this blog through the SITS girls, and couldn’t stop reading. While I don’t always agree with everything she has to say, I absolutely LOVE her blog! Check out Ain’t Yo Mama’s Blog! You won’t be sorry you did!
19) @RobinPregnancy – Robin Elise Weiss is not only a great mother on twitter, but she is a rock star in the birth community. Authoring nearly a dozen books, teaching Passion for Birth Workshops, being a mother, a guide on about.com for Pregnancy and Birth, she does it all! Check out some of her projects : Pregnancy.about.com and BirthActivist which she is the founder of!
18) @BabyDickey – Emily – I originally came across her on twitter in the tale end of her pregnancy which was full of pushed inductions and typical obstetric interventions. Through her Twitter Birth and an unnecessary induction and cesarean birth she became a great advocate, and ICAN chapter leader. Check out her Blog : Baby Dickey.
17) @Preparing4Birth – Desirre Andrews, childbirth educator, doula, and amazing educator. Mother of 4, two of which are VBA2C babies. She is the current President of ICAN and someone who is an awesome advocate and educator to follow! Check out her website Preparing for Birth & the ICAN site.
15) @TheSingleMama – Emily is a great mom and a single mother by choice to a beautiful little boy. She had an amazing birth experience we all watched on Twitter through a Twitter Birth also! Her website is The Single Mama.
14) @CrunchyVTMommy - Veronica I came across on twitter recently. She is a great twitter advocate, and has a lot of neat stuff to say. One of the things I love, she openly LOVES Wu-Tang Clan! LOL!
13) @HealthyJasmine – Jasmine is an awesome mom, and just had one hell of a VBAC attempt. She got me into writing for Examiner too! She has a lot of great articles on health and wellness. Check out the Chicago Family Health Examiner where she writes.
12) @RaisingBoyChick – Arwyn is an awesome woman to follow on twitter. She always has something to say that will really make you think, or laugh. She writes an even awesomer blog called Raising My Boychick, check it out!
11) @soozenw – Susan is amazing. She told an awesome tale of plans for a UBAC after she couldn’t legally find any midwives in her area to take on a VBAC at home. Although she had a 2nd cesarean section, she made a lasting impact on myself, and most of the childbirth community on twitter with her journey.
10) @MidwifeAmy – Amy Romano from Science & Sensibility, although I know her on more of a one-on-one level as she is local to me. Play dates, working on special projects or just having a glass of wine. She seriously rocks!
7) @KristineBrite – Kristine Brite is the mother of an adorable angel baby known to the world as Cora. She passed away from an undetected Congenital Heart Defect only a few days after she was born. Since the loss of Cora, Kristine has done amazing things to help spread the world on Congenital Heart Defects, has started a blog to heal, and help others, and started her own non-profit charity in Cora’s name. She is an amazing mother, and advocate!
6) @CrunchyGoddess – Amy Gates is an amazing mom blogger I met through twitter. Different from most typical Mom Bloggers Amy stands strong in her thoughts, ideas and beliefs and is an outstanding writer! I am always interested in seeing what is going to be the newest topic on her blog Crunchy Domestic Goddess.
5) @PhDinParenting – Annie is a great blogger who I have followed for quite some time, and I completely love the majority of her posts. While she may not be an actual PhD, she certainly should be! Her blog is thought provoking and constantly challenging my brain. Check out PhD in Parenting, you won’t be wasting your time!
4) @BabyRabies – Jill from Baby Rabies is probably one of my favorite preggo bloggers, and her tweets just crack me up. Reading a post of hers, or a tweet from her helps to get a smile on my face almost instantly!
3) @BirthingKristen – Kristen from Birthing Beautiful Ideas is an awesome chick! I had followed her, and her blog for quite a while, and then when preparing for the NIH VBAC conference in March, she was awesome enough to offer to share her room with me.Check out her blog, she has an amazing amount of great information on VBAC!
2) @FeministBreeder – Gina is probably the woman I want to be “when I grow up” and i say that with as much respect as possible. Gina is one of my idol bloggers, and one that I have the most in common with. I first found her VBAC story which made me not only cry, but enraged me to help make more change out there in the birth community. Her blog The Feminist Breeder is probably my favorite blog to read! I LOVE GINA! I cannot WAIT to meet her at BlogHer in August!
1) @StarryMom – Sarah rocks my socks off. She is my “web master” and has been an amazing help in turning my blogspot crap hole blog into not only a .com site, but an amazingly designed masterpiece! She is a great mentor when it comes to anything that has to do with technology, and she is an amazing photographer! Her website One Starry Night is just a masterpiece!
Now go check out all these women, follow them, tweet at them, and check out their blogs! You won’t be sorry!
