The Pittsburgh MOB Directory is an ongoing effort to collect information on all of the mom-owned businesses in the city.  It is my hope that this project will inspire us all to support the hard work of fellow Pittsburgh mothers!

If you are a Pittsburgh mother and would like to enter your own business, please click “Submit a Listing” below.  Note, your listing will need to be approved by an administrator before it will appear in full.

If you are looking for a product or service offered by a Pittsburgh mother, you have several choices.  You can click “View Listings” to get the complete listing of ALL Pittsburgh mom-owned businesses I have collected so far.  You can also click “Directory” to view listings by category.  Or you can input a search term to find something more specific.

South Hills Mom Blog
South Hills Mom Blog

A mom's guide to kid-friendly resources in the South Hills of Pittsburgh!

As a stay-at-home mom to two young children, I'm always looking for new things to do with my kids. I started my blog with the hope of being a resource for other South Hills families, sharing our adventures and experiences around town. Some of my favorite posts have been about playgrounds in our area, indoor play spaces, and my feature posts of local mom-owned businesses. My favorite thing about writing my blog is that even though I've lived in the South Hills a long time, I keep finding new things around our community!

The Pittsburgh Mommy Blog

A local blog dedicated to helping parents raise adventurous children and to supporting inspired mothers in the city of Pittsburgh.

I write stories, poetry and novels. I'm working on setting up my own blog site. I recently published a short novella on kindle eBooks. The story (as the author) is Pittsburgh based and I hope I have the patronage, support and encouragement of the Pittsburgh community to continue my career as a writer. Here's a link for the book.
Your feedback on the book is extremely valuable to me as this is my first publication. Hope you will all like it!

I'm a Pittsburgher for nearly 8 years. I have a 4 year old son and been a stay at home mom the entire time. These 4 years have been the best in my life. Watching a life take form, grow and blossom in front of your eyes has been an incredible gift and blessing. Before my son, I was a technologist working for over 18 years in the IT field. In all the hustle and bustle of corporate life, I had forgotten my real passion - writing. I credit my son for bringing the passion to the forefront.
