Our Birth Story

In January of 2011, a small Café was born. Meeting twice a month, we came together with women from all walks of life. Together we were women committed to more, to beauty, and to our strength to discover. But most of all—committed to each other.

Surprised at how quickly our Café grew, by early the next year we felt it was time to more deeply ingrain ourselves in the mothering community. So, in July of 2012, we re-branded and re-launched as The Motherhood Collective. A non-profit organization with a mission to “nurture the mother to grow the child” by connecting women to their communities and advocating for a societal change in maternal health.

We now specialize in walking with women from preconception through preschool. With immense value placed on peer-to-peer support we find that offering women a place to belong results in deeper connection to her community and increased opportunities for education. Our programs serve both the dark and sunshiny days of motherhood; recognizing that not all roads to motherhood look the same.

We are honored to have the hands of many volunteers helping us to serve mothers both locally and online. We are always in need of help. If would like to volunteer your time and talents to The Motherhood Collective, we’d love to hear from you! Please visit our Programs page for an ever expanding list of opportunities for involvement and join us in” nurturing the mother to grow the child”.
