Hear what women have to say about this board:

When I first came to iVillage, I came in search of support and for other moms like me. I found the At-Home Moms board and no longer felt alone and worried. I knew there were other moms trying to make things work as a stay-at-home mom. I have had so much support and understanding of how hard it is to be not only a stay-at-home mother, but also how hard it is to be a mom.

At-Home Moms board became a place I visit often to regain my sanity, get a good laugh, share advice with another mom or just to vent. Now I feel that every SAHM should have a place to find comfort and understanding from others with similar experiences. This is my place. It's where I come to remind myself that I'm a woman as well as a stay-at-home mom.

I live in an area where being a stay-at-home mom isn't rare, it just doesn't happen. If I hadn't found the At-Home Moms board I'm not sure I'd still be at home with my kids today. I had only been home for a few short weeks and I already felt ready for the loony bin. I had no one to go to for advice, no companionship during the day, and no clue what I was doing. The women on this board have proven to be a wealth of information and support. They 'get' me, and the hundreds of little dilemmas I face in a week.

I haven't been a SAHM for long and I am still trying to get used to it. It's great to know that there are a bunch of women here that know exactly what you are going through!

When I left my job to become a stay-at-home mom, I was looking for support from others that were doing the same thing. I was sent a link to this wonderful message board and feel so blessed to be a part of it. Whenever I have a question or concern, I know that the women here will be there with wonderful, sincere advice. I love getting to know all of the other women and their families. Without this board, I think that I would have returned to work a month after I left.

Many of my friends remained in the workforce, and I was feeling out of step with other women. Those friends urged me to go back to work, but I felt that being a SAHM was the right decision for me and wondered who else had made such a decision. I like the intimate feel of the At-Home Moms board. It isn't overwhelmingly busy, yet neither did I feel like the only person at a party. It is the perfect size for me, and filled with interesting, thoughtful and fun moms who have similar experiences to mine.
