IBDMoms is a resource and tool created by moms with ​inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) for moms affected by ​inflammatory bowel disease as patients or caregivers.

IBDMoms was started in 2018 by IBD advocates, Brooke Abbott ​& Amber Tresca. What began as a hashtag has grown into a ​501(c)3 non-profit that provides education, resources, and ​donations and hosts social events to ensure that the IBDMoms ​community has what they need to live their best lives despite ​IBD.

IBDMoms in D.C.

The IBDMoms advocacy initiatives include legislative ​advocacy and activism. We teach advocates, patients and ​care partners how to advocate successfully with their local, ​state and national legislators through workshops and ​webinars. In addition to this, IBDMoms joins other advocacy ​groups in Washington D.C. throughout the year to advocate ​to Congress about policies related to maternal health, ​health equity, GI related health policies and research ​budgets.

While on the Hill, we often share stories with legislators that ​patients and care partners share with us. These stories are ​vital to moving legislation through Congress effectively. If ​you would like to share your story with Congress the next ​time, we are on The Hill, please share your story with us.
