The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a shift for families all around the world and women now hold multiple roles in the family including caregiver, entrepreneur or employee, home chef and teacher. The updated Working Mother Registry 2.0 includes a virtual educational event in addition to the registry, offering content and products designed to ease the journey into working motherhood in these challenging times.
"It is crystal clear that working mothers are feeling enormous strain from the pandemic, with minority moms being hit the hardest. As more than 74% of American mothers are working, the demand for products and services that save time and reduce stress has never been greater," said Meredith Bodgas, Editor-in-Chief of Working Mother. "We are so pleased to team up with Gugu Guru again to create this updated version of our Working Mother Registry, designed to help working moms achieve some balance and peace of mind while facing a whole new set of challenges brought on by the COVID-19 era."
On the Working Mother Registry 2.0 powered by Gugu Guru, visitors can browse carefully curated offerings that can make the transition to new working mommyhood much more manageable. Categories include Sleep Essentials sponsored by Soma; an array of best-in-class Feeding products sponsored by comotomo; Health & Nutrition must-haves sponsored by Béaba; products for Postpartum Life sponsored by Kindred Bravely and Davy Piper; gear and products for life on the go sponsored by Serenity Kids and; Registry Essentials sponsored by Love to Dream, Dékor Diaper Pails, Nomi, Lascal and QDOS.
"With nearly 90% of Gugu Guru's users comprised of working mothers, we recognize that product recommendations and tailored content for this demographic are more important now than ever," said Monica Banks, CEO and Founder of Gugu Guru. "We are especially excited about our virtual events on Gugu Guru's Instagram where we will hear from inspiring mothers like our keynote speaker and the #1 voice for working moms, Christine Michel Carter, along with celebrity mompreneur Whitney Port among others."
This year the two companies have also partnered with The Mom Project, a digital talent marketplace and community that connects professionally accomplished women with world-class companies.
"A key part of our mission at The Mom Project is to make the challenge of juggling work and parenthood easier," said Colleen Curtis, Chief Community Officer of The Mom Project. "Partnering with Working Mother and Gugu Guru on a registry and content that caters to new and expectant moms transitioning back to work in these unprecedented times seemed like a natural fit."
When visitors create an account on Gugu Guru, they can build a customized wishlist of their favorite products and services to share with family and friends on social media, or through a unique URL.
Special, exclusive discounts and giveaways will also be offered throughout the virtual event.
