first-time moms are often blindsided by many aspects of new motherhood - it's tough!

Despite all their planning, they aren't prepared for the transition to motherhood. Mamistad exists because having your first baby is likely the most impactful & life-changing thing you'll ever do, and in this crazy world, it can be overwhelming. You need your sisters. 

Mamistad groups connect new moms to navigate the trials and JOYS of the motherhood journey, together. 

            Even if it's not through Mamistad,

 Please connect with a mom's group  & take care of YOU!

 Welcome to the Mami Network. Welcome to the sisterhood of struggle and triumph, of heartache and bliss...

It's not just you!

One of the toughest things about being a mom is 

honoring yourself.  

Motherhood brings vulnerability. 

Support and friendship on this journey matter.

Kindness matters.

Your Mom Power sustains your children & family.

Collectively, Our Mom Power sustains the world.

Welcome to the Mamihood.
