CafeMom and The Stir
Launched in 2006, our flagship property CafeMom is the largest meeting place for moms, where moms come for conversation, advice, friendship, and entertainment. We bring continue to bring moms together through thousands of communities that reflect their personalities, passions and needs.
In 2010, CafeMom expanded to include content as well, launching The Stir as its popular platform for original articles and videos. The Stir covers a wide variety of topics including parenting, beauty, food, news, tech and pop culture. The editorial team produces thousands of pieces of high-quality content each month, writing in a fresh, opinionated style that engages readers and encourages social media sharing. Users have spent more than 66.6MM minutes (that's more than 126 years!) watching our quality video content, which covers everything from the real stories of moms raising kids with special needs, to home workout routines any mom can fit into her busy day.
Together, with its unique combination of content and community, CafeMom is #1 with moms, reaching 25 million monthly visitors.

Reaching more than 4 million monthly unique visitors, MamásLatinas super-serves the culturally unique interests and needs of its audience with a combination of dynamic community and compelling editorial content.
