Welcome to MotherWoman

Our Mission

MotherWoman supports and empowers mothers to create personal and social change by promoting the mental health and resilience of new mothers, building community safety nets and advocating for good family policy.

As many as one in nine women may experience postpartum depression and other birth-related emotional challenges. MotherWoman is committed to supporting moms through the perinatal experience with community-based support groups and networks of partners attuned to their needs.

We speak out to all moms: We see you. We hear you.

Our Philosophy

Mothers are powerful. When mothers are valued and supported, we are more successful in all areas of our lives, benefiting our children, families and communities. Creating communities of genuine respect and non-judgment for all mothers increases our collective power. Laws and policies that support families benefit everyone.

MotherWoman Support Groups

Our groups offer safety, consistency and clarity so that each woman can speak her truth.

Our facilitators strive to create rare, treasured safe places of non-judgment and acceptance for all mothers.

What Our Moms Say

I think that I had a fairly “typical” postpartum period. My son didn’t have that sleepy first week or so, however – he just seemed to cry! I felt overwhelmed, wondered why he had done this, and I had a hard time finding any joy in it. Congratulatory cards advising us to “savor every moment” made me think something was wrong with us! My husband, who was home for the first six weeks, spent that time angry and resentful. I didn’t know how we were going to survive.

Everyone kept telling me “hang in there, it gets so much better.” For me, it got harder after 12 weeks. I knew some other mothers going to MotherWoman. I was resistant to coming because I didn’t want to sit in a group of depressed, sad women! But I was desperate so I decided to try. Thank God!
