What is Kindred?
Kindred Together is the “Tinder for mom friends.” We make it fun and easy for moms to meet other moms locally who share the same interests. 1-7 moms self-report symptoms of postpartum mood disorders brought on primarily through isolation. It is Kindred’s goal to combat the isolation. We do not take the “Mama Stamp” approach. Every mom is unique and we strive to match them according to personal interests in order to build lasting friendships. No one has less time than a mom, our goal is to get you from Mama Maybe to meeting in person as fast as possible. With our nifty scheduling feature finding time to meet has never been easier.
