Letter From the Founder: Joy Report & Welcome Emma

There’s been a lot of activity at MOM over the last several months. I thought it might be good to connect everyone and keep you all updated and also take this opportunity to introduce our newest team member, Emma Andrews. Welcoming her is a bonafide full circle experience as her mother was one of the first team members here at MOM almost 20 years ago.

Food Fights, Life, Death, and M/otherhood

American mothers, for better or worse, live in a country with no Social Security benefits for their time at home, an ongoing non-equitable pay situation, and a lack of federally mandated parental leave, the formula crisis is just another tip of the iceberg (among many other things). For many this is a life and death situation that begins with birth and ends, in the case of many, with death. I am specifically noting the fact that the US has the highest maternal mortality rate of any developed nation. Tonight, Sunday May 22 @ 7-8:30PM (EST) we discuss these topics during a FREE film screening of Funnel of Dreams about the lack of supportive American Policies for moms and families. Join us! Motherhood is ONE FUCK of a journey!
