Every new mom begins an adventure, but no two journeys are the same. So how do you know which way to go? How do you make sense of the latest health food claims? How do you conquer the upcoming weekend? How do you find time for yourself?
You turn to Babble.
Babble is an ever-evolving collection of wisdom and perspective and humor. It brings together unique voices that foster refreshing conversations. Real moms sharing real moments that help you think, help you learn, help you laugh, and help you be a better you.
Babble is your resource, your community, your support group, and your brain break. It’s a network to find inspiration, look for new ideas, seek advice, reach out, or take a few minutes off. Less how to, and more me too, what if, and let’s go.

Meet the Edit Team
Andrea leads editorial and runs the New York team. She got her start in digital media as a Babble intern, where one of her first tasks was copy-editing a rather eye-opening guide to pregnancy. In her free time, Andrea plays volleyball, binge-reads on her Kindle, and hunts down every amazing hole-in-the-wall food joint in Manhattan.
Shelby always wanted to be a writer and/or work at a fancy internet company. She did a stint at several startups developing content and convincing brands to market on networks like Facebook, eventually landing a job at Disney managing social media and editorial for Pixar. Now, she’s very happily a Manager, Content Strategy for Babble.com and Disney Style where she focuses on lifestyle, and makes sure everyone in the company uses Tumblr correctly. She loves doing ballet, traveling, going to concerts, and cooking.
Jennifer moved from Florida to NYC for college — and never left. She started as an intern at Babble three years ago, and — you guessed it! — she never left. Now, as an editor, Jenn manages the Entertainment, Style, and Body and Mind content, along with partnerships. On the weekends, you can find her traipsing around Brooklyn on the hunt for new brunch spots and thrift store gems.
Amy is the Parenting and News editor for Babble. Before landing at Disney, she worked for Oxygen.com and TheBump.com. Her interests include traveling to new places, really bad romantic comedies, and unwarranted sarcasm. But really all you need to know is that she’s the kind of girl who has an Instagram for her cat.
Megan heads up the social media team, as well as serving as the submissions editor. Before joining Babble’s editorial staff, she worked at ModernMom.com, The Huffington Post, The Next Web, and Forbes. Megan’s favorite things include: avocados, Jeopardy, and Shamrock Shakes.
Robin edits the lovely Home, Food, and Beauty sections. The journey that led her to the wonderful world of Disney includes splashing the pages of Refinery29, Daily Candy, Time Out, and Racked, and working in public relations and social media for lifestyle brands. Her obsessions include watching Doctor Who (she admits to being a total nerd), eating avocado toast, and scouting out vintage treasures.
Juliane Hiam is a playwright, screenwriter, and mother of four. She has been a writer and editor for Babble and the Walt Disney Company since 2011, currently overseeing Babble’s Relationships and Dad content.
Rebecca Wheeler is a social media intern with a penchant for statement necklaces. She recently graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where she studied anthropology and geography (and wanted to be the next Indiana Jones). Before joining the Babble team, she worked as an editorial intern for a fashion and lifestyle magazine in Southern California. When not Tweeting, Facebooking, Pinteresting, and Instagramming, she is rereading the Harry Potter series and baking up a snickerdoodle storm.
Heather started trekking into NYC from Long Island as Babble’s editorial intern in August 2014. She works on a little bit of everything, but loves entertainment writing in particular. A true Disney fanatic, she spends the majority of her time planning Disney World vacations in her head and fantasizing about the library from Beauty and the Beast.
A recent University of Southern California graduate, Kelly spent the past four years studying journalism, trying to understand football, and developing strong opinions about the Oxford comma. After an internship at E! News and a stint as the senior entertainment editor for Neon Tommy, she landed at Babble, where she happily edits stories, creates quizzes and baby names lists, and eats croissants. In her free time, Kelly is a fan of wearing black, drinking tea, and reading biographies, which she realizes sounds pretentious but promises isn’t.
