Guest Authoring at DrMomma.org



Thank you for your interest in publishing an article at DrMomma.org. Here you will find answers to the most commonly asked questions regarding guest authorship with peaceful parenting. Please review all the information below, and email if you have further questions: DrMomma.org@gmail.com

Q1: Do you accept guest articles? If so, must they be original or can it include an item I wrote in another location?

A1: We welcome guest authorship at DrMomma.org and feel that the wide variety of voices here lends to the community building and information sharing among parents and advocates, new and experienced. Articles can be those that are original in format and written specifically for publication at this site, or they can be items or excerpts from pieces you authored elsewhere. Articles that are accepted for publication at DrMomma.org tend to have natural family living and gentle parenting in mind. We seek content that is unique, research or experience based, and well written.

Q2: What is your readership demographic?

A2: DrMomma.org is read by approximately 500,000 per month according to Google Statistics. Average daily readership varies between 10-20,000 depending on article topics and frequency of publication. The majority of our authors note a significant increase in traffic on their own site. Our readership consists primarily of those in the United States and Canada, followed by readers in the United Kingdom (#3), Australia (#4), Germany (#5), India (#6), New Zealand (#7), Philippines (#8), France (#9) and Japan (#10).

DrMomma.org originated as a local effort on behalf of several professors to gather thoughts and materials into one easy-to-access location for students in the fields of human development, human health, and human sexuality. It branched to readers beyond the university when students began to share materials, and professionals in a variety of fields offered their work toward these educational efforts. Today, we still reach a wide number of students studying in the fields of development, health, and sexuality, and also those in working toward professional careers in birth, lactation, family counseling and the social sciences.

A second, yet equally prevalent group of readers, include new and expecting parents, as well as those raising families in a 'natural living' manner -- parenting gently along the way.

Q3: What subjects do you publish on?

A3: We do not put limitations on the wide array of topics published at DrMomma.org, however, most of the articles you will find here are research-based and address subjects of interest to natural living families. We not only accept articles that are research oriented, but also those that are opinion or experience based, articles on current news, reviews, awareness raising items, poetry, photography, artwork and more. Most of our readership is interested in subjects that will be of interest to gentle parenting mothers and fathers, advocates of peaceful parenting, and/or those studying in the fields listed in A2. Our readership is especially interested in topics that pertain to healthy, conscious living and gentle, conscious parenting.

Items that pertain to the subject of genital autonomy (intact care, circumcision, restoration, etc.) may be published at Saving Our Sons in addition to DrMomma.org to reach a greater audience interested in the topic. You are welcome to inquire about this possibility if it is of interest to you.

Q4: Are there subjects you will not publish on?

A4: We present materials -- both research based and experience oriented -- from a mother/baby-friendly position. As such, we will not publish articles that counter healthy development, attachment and gentle living for babies, children, and the families to which they belong. We will not, then, publish items that encourage, support or push unnecessary surgical birth, artificial feeding of human infants, genital cutting, neglect, abuse in any form (including 'sleep training' and 'cry it out'), aggressive or manipulative discipline techniques, poor nutrition, or toxic products, among others.

It is currently a fad on websites to write "Top 10" or "5 Ways To..." lists. We rarely post in this format as it is generally not well researched or interesting to read. If your article is scholarly in nature, include full citations for references used.

Q5: How do I submit an article for consideration?

A5: Send your article or a link to your piece (if published elsewhere) to DrMomma.org@gmail.com  DrMomma.org has two editors (who serve with peaceful parenting on a volunteer basis) and all items are edited prior to publication.

If you are the author of a published book and would like an excerpt used at DrMomma.org with links back to your work, please provide us with the title, chapter, and suggestion for excerpting. We have a local lending library that houses over 2,000 books related to pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, babies, children, families, sexuality, etc., so we may have yours here. If not, you are welcome to send a copy to:

Peaceful Parenting 
P.O. Box 1302
Virginia Beach, VA 23451

With your completed article for consideration, also include the following: 
  • Author's name as it should appear. Pen names are acceptable, especially for sensitive or personal essays, but this should be noted so we are able to save a copy in our correspondence with you. 
  • A brief bio to go at the end or beginning of your piece if you wish. Links and a photograph may be included. 
  • Link(s) to your homepage, business, website, book, Facebook page, or wherever you would most prefer readers to go for more information on you or your subject. 
  • A photograph or graphic if you have one (or several) that you would like to use within the piece. We will watermark images with a copyright for you upon request. If you do not have a photo you wish to use, we will select one that fits the theme of your article from among those we've been given in the past. 

Q6: How will I know if my item is chosen for publication? 

A6: Because of the volume of submissions we receive for consideration, you will only receive correspondence and an email back if and when your article is accepted for publication now or in the future. If it is accepted, we will indicate the general timeframe in which it will appear (this week, next week, next month). We select approximately two items each week for publication. 


 We thank you for your interest in publishing at DrMomma.org and look forward to reading your work!
