Where Are Choice Moms?

Each year I check the numbers of visitors coming to the ChoiceMoms.org website, and where they are coming from. Each year those numbers go up, often dramatically, with no marketing budget. That means that each year there is an increase in women around the world individually seeking and finding the information we provide about 1) how to become a Choice Mom and proactively create a family on our own, and 2) how to build families in non-traditional ways.

Here is what the latest Google Analytics are telling me, showing the dramatic upswings in numbers since the previous year.

Notably, we had 118,538 visitors in 2016, up from 52,459 visitors in 2015.

Interestingly, Los Angeles and Chicago have lately surpassed the San Francisco area, where we have long had the highest statistics of women building families on their own (second only to perennial top-ranked New York City). And the depth of the appeal of Choice Motherhood in cities around the world continues to grow stronger.
