What is Fitler Moms?

A Philadelphia native, an attorney, and a mother of two little ones, Crystal Axelrod started Fitler Moms in 2019 with a simple goal in mind-- to create a network of moms in the small Fitler Square neighborhood of Philadelphia that was accommodating to working mothers.  It began with Saturday morning meetups at our local pub, and the rest is history!

"Becoming a mother can be an isolating experience. It helps to be reminded that we're not going through it alone."  It once took a village to raise a child; today, it takes a support network. Most of us live far from our closest friends and family. We often rely on technology and social media to connect with others, which can leave us feeling even more isolated. We lack real, human interactions with our peers. The mission of Fitler Moms has always been to create a supportive community for women when they need it most, where they need it most-- right in their own neighborhood.  


What is MomConnect?

Prompted by the increased importance of social connection during Covid, we experimented with virtual meetups, and MomConnect was born! It is a larger organization dedicated to helping moms create hyperlocal connections in their own neighborhoods across the city. We offer in-person and virtual Moms Meetups, Q&As with family experts, classes, events, and New Mom Squads-- all designed to create a space for connecting with others. If you become a Community Member, we will personally introduce you to other like-minded moms in your neighborhood.  Plus, you can access our app with a member directory, online forum, shared resources and more.


If you're a new mom, you're new to Philly, or you just want an easy way to make some new friends who happen to be moms, this community is for you!
