Calgary: Calling All Mompreneurs


It’s a word that’s entered our lexicon, and none too soon. After all, when women are starting up small businesses at twice the rate as men (and one-third of them have kids under 12!), you know it’s not just a passing fad.

Not that that’s news to us at SavvyMom (a mom-run media company). Since we launched almost two years ago, we’ve been constantly impressed by the number of Canadian mompreneurs whose great products and services we’ve enjoyed uncovering and promoting. And today, in celebration of all those moms who dared to dream big, we’re announcing the SavvyMom Mompreneur of the Year Award, (with an $18,000 prize no less)!

So today, we thought it appropriate to feature one of our fave companies which was launched by three Calgary savvy moms just two years ago, inspired by their experience in trying to keep track of the sometimes overwhelming medical information a new baby brings. HealthPod is the latest and greatest health organizer for parents which helps keep track of your baby’s health and medical info (such as results from doctor’s appointments and growth records), reminds you when to update your immunizations and gives you a stylish hold-all (that zips up easily to keep everything safe inside) for all those important medical details. Moms experiencing the joy of their first pregnancy will appreciate the prenatal know how included in the binder, which was developed in consultation with 20 medical professionals, as well.
