On Line Support Groups for Working Mothers

There are also great online support groups that provide a broad range of communication and are accessible on your time schedule.

Mothers & More is a non-profit membership organization provides a nationwide network of local chapters for mothers who are (by choice or circumstance) altering their participation in the paid workplace over the course of their active parenting years.

Workitmom.com is another online community where working moms can share their experiences, advice, and support can make that daily juggle a bit more manageable.

Mom Junction allows members to immediately access the groups of moms in your local town or find moms outside of your area, but who are still within reach.
