Ezine

While making this site we realized that given the vast scope of Parenting as a subject, it was not possible to be able to do justice to it in the limited pages of the main site. Therefore we decided to start the Mom’s Ezine that will relate to subjects of special interest to you. Through the Ezine we hope to increase the scope of the site further, by introducing special focus sections on a father’s contribution in child rearing, working mothers, special needs children etc. Issues relating to concerns such as whether ultrasounds are safe for the baby or how to adopt a child will also be taken up in the Mom’s Ezine.

To get the Mom’s Ezine delivered to your doorstep, (or should we say your mousepad), just fill in your email address and submit to us. The Mom’s Ezine will be available every month on the 1st of the month. We hope you will enjoy reading it as much as we will, in preparing it!
