TV broadcaster, blogger and part time professional photographer chronicled her journey to accepting motherhood and now, as a mom of two, continues to entertain, edify and connect with her audience, including other moms each week on her award-winning blog, Baby Making Machine.
I was a reader of her blog in the early years and even featured her a few times on Bellyitch in the past. I really enjoy her candid, honest and transparent blog posts about life as a working mom, including the challenges of being in an interracial relationship and practicing an often misunderstood religion, Mormonism.
Borget is also a vlogger and is a genius with the camera. I recently bumped into a fun partner post she did with Blue Apron titled, 10 Things I Aint Got Time to Do Since Becoming a Mom. It’s delightful as I could relate to several items on the list. Take a look and see if you can relate:
I’m honored and proud that Bellyitch was named among the Top 15 Best Pregnancy Blogs of 2016 by Healthline, the fastest growing consumer health information site — with 65 million monthly visitors and over 20 million health communities on Facebook, and offices in San Francisco and New York City.
About the blog, Healthine wrote:
Bellyitch is like the People magazine of pregnancy blogs. You’ll find celebrity news and fashion, personal stories, and tips and tricks for new and expecting parents. We like the mixture of content, giveaways, and product reviews. It’s got just the right amount of useful information, mixed with tantalizing celebrity gossip.

And we are in great company! I am friends with fellow top 15 blogger Jennifer Broget from Baby Making Machine since way before she had any kids. I also read her blog regularly. I subscribe to Pregnant Chicken. Blogger Amy from that site is a hoot! She has the best sense of humor around. Cafe Stir usually has the most unique and interesting stories. Very entertaining site! Fit Pregnancy has a plethora of wonderful lifestyle information for moms-to-be and parents in general. Celebrity Baby Scoop has been with us in the “bumpwatch” biz from the earlies. It is another wonderful source for bumpwatch news. The other winners are great too and I plan to check them out as well.
I want to shout out our team of writers, contributors, editors, social media managers and others who’ve worked on the blog over the years.
Thanks for the honor, Healthline. I think this is the 5th year on the list! We are going to wear our badge proudly. Check it out:
We talked about the importance of moms getting on the other side of the camera and being part of the moments they capture of their children’s lives. Modern smartphones have self-timers but if you have fidgety children and/or are working with an actual camera or a DSLR camera, you’re going to need to be more resourceful.
One of our longtime fave mom bloggers Jennifer Borget of The Baby Making Machine did an excellent video showing parents how to take selfies with their children using an app, their smartphone and a very clever hack!
Check out the video here:
My old blogging friend Jennifer Borget of the phenomenal Baby Making Machine blog just released a super cute video explaining which 10 baby milestones new parents should try to capture on video during their baby’s first year of life.
They include: 1. first day; 2. crying; 3. laughing; 4. crawling; walking and other milestones.
Check out her adorable video featuring moments with her very own daughter and son.
