Technology has changed the way we interact with those around us.
It's revolutionised conception, pregnancy and motherhood.
Most mothers will happily admit they’d be lost without their smartphones.
You can order nappies with next day delivery. Or ask Google what the heck that weird rash on your baby’s skin could be. You can get to know other mamas online.
In recent years, internet dating has also taken off. Many people are finding true love online, thanks to apps and websites that offer single people the chance to meet up.
For those who aren’t looking for lasting love, there are plenty of sites that offer people the opportunity to find someone to hook up with.
No Partner But Want A Baby? There's An App For That
And now there’s even an app to match up wannabe parents, hoping to fulfill their baby dream.
Designed for people who are ready to have kids, Modamily is an app that connects them with others who are looking for the same thing.
Unlike a traditional sperm bank, Modamily connects individuals who want to co-parent. You can sign up to the site for free, and browse other individuals who, like you, are ready to take the next step to becoming a parent.
Users fill out a profile, answer a questionnaire, and the site will set them up with like-minded individuals.
Users can upload an introductory video to add to their profile, allowing other members to get to know them a little better.
Modamily also offers the option to pay for background checks on potential matches.
The site’s co-founder, Ivan Fatovic, explains: “We noticed a good portion of family and friends spending their 20s and 30s focused on their careers and putting off marriage and children. Yet, as they approached 40, especially in the case of female friends, there came an enormous amount of pressure for finding a partner, often resulting in rushed marriages ending in divorce.
“It was even more disheartening when a child was introduced because now that child would often have to be raised in an environment of friction where mommy and daddy did not get along. I felt there had to be another viable option that could protect against these problems. Hence, co-parenting”.
The service is currently only available in the US, but this might change if it proves popular. The site already boasts a number of success stories.
In a world where online dating and social media have become the norm, Modamily seems like the logical step to help wannabe parents find each other.
