Mothers are struggling.
Maternal mortality rates are unacceptable. Black mothers face grossly disproportionate poor outcomes compared to white mothers. Perinatal mood disorders continue to be the most common complication of pregnancy and maternal suicide is a leading cause of death. Ninety-three percent of mothers are burnt out (up 7% from last year) and 92% feel unsupported by society.
No one is coming to save us.
It's time to change the culture around motherhood. It's time to shift from a model of martyrdom to one of thriving and sustainable motherhood. It's time to address the epidemic of #mommyguilt and #mommyshame.
If you're feeling burnt out, overwhelmed, depleted or depressed...
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
Mothers from all walks of life are feeling this way because these are actually symptoms of the need to pivot into a new kind of motherhood. There is a very real danger of accepting what is common (93% of moms report feeling burnt out, 1/7 suffer from perinatal mood disorders) as normal. Instead we must see this as a wake up call, a tipping point that propels us toward a better way.
Collectively we can weave together a new vision for sustainable motherhood. Join us for real, raw, and inspiring stories and valuable insights from mothers and others around the world who are leading the way into this new maternal archetype, the MotherFly.
We are thrilled to have 20 brilliant speakers! Below are a few...
