UPDATED 5 p.m. March 22, 2021: Nominations are now closed! Stay tuned for our announcement of our 5 finalists on Wednesday March 24, 2021!

As the premier parenting resource in the Greater Boston area, the mission of Boston Moms has always been to enrich the lives of the moms we serve. Our goal to connect moms to each other and to their communities, to offer important resources, and to celebrate motherhood is paramount to all we do.

Last year, we had the distinct privilege of honoring local Super Moms through our first-ever search for Boston’s Super Mom on the Frontlines. A year later (wow), we will do it all over again to ensure that these moms get the recognition they so deserve.

While all moms are certainly carrying a heavier load these days, moms who are working on the frontlines during this pandemic are carrying exponentially more. To us, they are SUPER. This is our opportunity to honor and celebrate their contributions to our community and to cheer them on as they continue to do this important work at home and on the frontlines.

Nominations for Boston’s Super Mom on the Frontlines will be accepted beginning at 5 a.m. EST on March 15, 2021, just over one year after the MA statewide COVID-19 shutdown was declared

We are looking for moms who stand out in a crowd. Do you know a mom who is working on the frontlines? Perhaps she is a doctor, a nurse, a pharmacist, a medical assistant, a radiologist technician, a first responder, a researcher, or a lab staff member. Maybe she has a different job entirely and has gone above and beyond for her community this year! What is she doing to make a difference for others? Does she set an example and offer encouragement for others around her? How has she had to sacrifice so that she can continue to serve our community during this crucial time?

Boston’s Super Mom on the Frontlines might be your own mom, your neighbor, your grandmother, your best friend, or anyone else you admire. Boston’s Super Mom on the Frontlines might be YOU!

Some of the 2020 nominees ::

Our 2020 Winner, Katie Mahoney :: Katie Mahoney is a mother of three and lives in Hanson, MA. She has been a nurse since she graduated from Northeastern University. She has three beautiful children, Calleigh (11), Conor (9), and Charlotte (5). Katie is a devoted mother and wife who enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, camping, and skiing.

Why is Katie a Super Mom on the Front Lines?

Katie’s unit at Boston Medical Center is 100% COVID-19 patients. She was scared. Her family was scared. Yet every day she shows up with strength and grace. She sacrifices snuggles and hugs with her children. She sleeps apart from her family. She shares intimate FaceTime calls with complete strangers because that is the only way her patients’ loved ones can say one last goodbye. This is her new norm. She is a HERO!
