About

The Mom Forum began as a private Facebook group to help support women in their journey through motherhood.  This online community became a safe space for moms of all backgrounds to honestly share about everything that comes along with motherhood… the good, the bad and the oh so difficult.

Group creator, Elisha Beach, searched online for mom blogs that she felt addressed all the aspects of motherhood she and members of the group were dealing with daily. After not finding quite what she was looking for, Elisha decided to create a site supporting women in all aspects of motherhood from parenting to self-care. She brought together a diverse group of amazing moms and created The Mom Forum. Join us in our journey as we support your journey through motherhood.

 

Who We Are

Elisha Beach, Founder

Elisha Beach is a birth mom of 3, adoptive mom of 1 and a stepmom of 4 step-“adults.”. Yes, you read that right… 8 kids (and a dog)…a.k.a a professional mom complete with a B.A. in Child Development.

She is also wife to Michael Beach and they have been happily married since 2007 despite the fact that she must always be right, is a terrible housekeeper, laundry avoider, and rarely organizes the refrigerator.

She is a former professional ballet dancer who still practices her pirouettes and arabesque in the kitchen while making home cooked meals. She loves to share home cooking tips on her live Facebook show What’s For Dinner Wednesdays.

She manages to keep her sanity through all the chaos by surrounding herself with momma friends, avidly practicing selfcare and sharing her truth about mom life through blogging.

Elisha began blogging in 2015 after she sent the internet into a frenzy when with a photo of herself breastfeeding on a toilet. She responded with a blog on Huffington Post that also went viral and launched her first blog as a result of all the uproar. She has since been featured in publications such as Scary Mommy and Huffington Post.

In 2017, she founded The Mom Forum and it has since expanded to included the video series Best Mom Friends and #MomLife, Facebook Live series Monday Mom Chat and What’s for Dinner Wednesdays, and in person events and workshops such as our Mom Selfcare Workshop and Moms’ Night Out.

The Mom Forum Podcast launched In July 2018 and features intimate mom-to-mom conversations sharing the journey to and through motherhood.

In 2018, Elisha released The Mom Selfcare Planner, a workbook to help moms create personal selfcare plans for their daily life.
