Empowered Motherhood Summit

February 11-15, 2021

Map for a New Motherhood

Join the Motherhood rEvolution!

Mothers are struggling. 

Maternal mortality rates are rising. Black mothers face disproportionate poor outcomes compared to white mothers. Perinatal mood disorders are the most common complication of pregnancy and maternal suicide is a leading cause of death.  Ninety-seven percent of mothers are burnt out and 89% feel unsupported by society.

No one is coming to save us. 

It's up to us to create a new culture for motherhood. A culture that allows us to be imperfect, to include ourselves in our circle of care, to receive support and to hold our dreams with the same love and care that we hold our own children WITHOUT #mommyguilt or #mommyshame.

The truth is that...

"We are not struggling

because we are inadequate. 

We are struggling 

because we are

mothering within

a society that is


misguiding, and


supporting us."

-Beth Barry

If you're feeling burnt out, overwhelmed, depleted or depressed...


Mothers from all walks of life are feeling this way because these are actually symptoms of the awakening into a new kind of motherhood.  

Collectively we can weave together a new vision for sustainable motherhood.  Join us for real, raw, and inspiring stories and valuable insights from mothers around the world who are leading the way into this new maternal archetype, the MotherFly.

"Shame dies when stories are told in safe places."

-Ana Voskamp
