About: KidslyMom’s Team

KidslyMom, founded in 2018, is the ultimate spot for pregnant women, moms, and those who are hoping to become moms to find honest information about motherhood. It goes deeper to give you real information about topics many moms are embarrassed to ask about, along with plenty of humorous anecdotes provided by the author and founder Leslie Berry and co-editor Linda Portis.

With very different backgrounds, both moms share the same core values about providing honest and transparent advice about every stage of motherhood. From those early stages of trying to conceive to crazy pregnancy symptoms and from labor and delivery to handling that toddler “NO!” phase, Leslie and Linda are pioneering the way for motherhood advice in the most relatable ways.

KidslyMom covers topics about pregnancy, parenting, c-sections, breastfeeding, prenatal and postnatal care, toddlerhood, and plenty more. It’s a place where every mom is welcomed in like an old and cherished friend to have a safe space to find the questions and answers they seek while having a good laugh along the way.
