Who knew Brooke Burke-Charvet was so mom smart!? #backtoschool

brookeNew popular video-based parenting site, Kids in the House has just added a fresh new video from Brooke Burke-Charvet, CEO of ModernMom.com and Founder of online store Babooshbaby.com.

She begins her video by saying, “So, back to school mania. It’s crazy, and I’ve got it times four. So, the only way that I’m going to survive the chaos is to get really, super organized. So, I’ve got a bunch of different things that I do to help manage that crazy time.” I almost jumped ship when she was talking about being super organized because I try and I fail, miserably. But I kept watching and listening and her tips really do make sense, but more importantly they seem plausible. I think I can work with these ideas. :)

Burke-Charvet is among good company at Kids in the House, which features more than 8,000 videos from 450 experts. Many of the videos help parents cope with the anxiety of starting the new school year but the site has seen Burke-Charvet’s video receive an overwhelmingly positive response.

“Sometimes advice from a parent who has hard-earned wisdom to share can be the most helpful,” says Parenting Trend Expert and Founder of Kids in the House, Leana Greene. “Brooke Burke-Charvet gives great tips on how to get organized and make going back to school a drama-free event. As a mother of four, Brooke has personal experience to share on how difficult it is to make it all balance as a working mom.”

The Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS) is a coalition of individuals and national organizations with concern for the care and well-being of mothers, babies, and families. Their mission is to promote a wellness model of maternity care that will improve birth outcomes and substantially reduce costs. This evidence-based mother-, baby-, and family-friendly model focuses on prevention and wellness as the alternatives to high-cost screening, diagnosis, and treatment programs.

They have webinars each month on a variety of topics. Next month will be on “Marketing to a New Generation of Parents: Success as a Childbirth Business Owner.” CIMS Webinars are open to all at no charge. Continuing Education processing fees apply only to participants requesting a continuing education certificate for their participation. Fees can be paid at any time before or after the scheduled event.

They also have a wealth of information, free downloads and documents, etc.

Many minds, hearts and hands are needed to achieve the goal of Making Mother-Friendly Care A Reality. The maternity care system is in great need of evidence-based, cost-effective care, and it will take all of us to make it happen. Here are a few of the many ways you can become involved in Making Mother-Friendly Care A Reality in the U.S. and around the world.
