IBDMoms started with a hashtag.
IBDMoms started with a hashtag. IBDMoms is a safe space for moms affected by IBD (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, or indeterminate colitis) as patients and/or caregivers to come and commune, chat and cry, ask and answer, laugh, and laugh some more. Founded by health advocates & moms, Brooke Abbott & Amber J Tresca, the IBDMoms started from the two friends being able to share experiences and stories with one another, and other moms affected by IBD, without reservations or misunderstandings. After receiving a great response from their first IBDMoms-hosted Twitter chat, they decided to build on the idea to help strengthen the community of moms who are often forgotten within the IBD space.
