Created to provide space for mothers to connect, share their experience and be inspired to follow their passions as they grow their families.
Each month we will meet over coffee and lite bites to discuss a specific topic pertaining to the complexities of modern motherhood as a Woman of Color (WOC). Attendees will be able to share their experiences and struggles, as well as receive feedback in a supportive, non-judgmental space.
Session 01: Motherhood and Identity
As we set up for the days event, one by one women with their young ones in strollers or strapped close to their chest, arrived to Sincerely Tommy in the heart of Bed-stuy Brooklyn. It was a beautiful day for our first Modern Mama meet-up and we had a full house! My co-host, Stepha and I started the meeting off with introductions and asked each mother how they would like to perceived in this new venture in life. While we all want to be a good examples to our children, we talked about the importance of self-care and not losing ourselves in the daily tasks of motherhood. Special thanks to our sponsors: Anima Mundi, Cap beauty, Glossier, Ritual and the ladies at Sincerely Tommy.
