Your Milk Shoppe is beyond thrilled to share this little thing we’ve been working on for you mamas. Please meet our newest baby, Motherhood Collective!
Motherhood is tough. Rewarding and wonderful, all of those things — of course — but it’s really, REALLY tough. And honestly, somedays, most days, we don’t do ourselves any favors. Try as we might to NOT play the games… mom-guilt, doubt, the comparison game, what have you… we ALL fall victim from time to time. We compare ourselves, our kids, our lives… taking tallies. Well, we say to hell with all that.
This is a time when we should be clinging to each other for dear life, pumping each other up and celebrating each other’s wins, and commiserating over our fails. Whether you have fifteen kids or one, you work in your home or out of it, a few things are true about each and every one of us. We are mentally clocked into momming every hour of every single day. We are in a constant state of worrying if we’re doing all right by them — if we’re doing right by ourselves. We feel depleted by the end of most days, yet also more fulfilled than we ever have in our entire lives.
We get it.
The adage “it takes a village” is such a hallmark phrase because it’s true: IT DOES. No one can do this alone. Not even Gal Gadot, and she’s freakin’ WonderWoman.
So, how can we help? Consider us your village. Whether you’re a mom that is still on the hunt for her tribe, or one that is super seasoned and has wisdom to impart, you have a place in this village.
What can you expect from Motherhood Collective?
-Social events, like yoga brunch and Mom’s night out, (MOMosas, anyone??)
-Classes and workshops with specialists on topics to help make your parenting journey just a little bit easier. (Think Q&A’s with sleep consultants and behavioral specialists for those terrib… I mean terrific twos, and of course, parent prep workshops led by your favorite YMS mamas. :))
-Real-life, real-raw, mom-talk. Stories from you and from us about things like momming through IVF, learning your child has developmental differences, battling PPD and balancing multiples, and any and everything in between.
Overall, you can expect solidarity and support from this collective of women, both in your backyard and all over the country.
Our mission is to give you all of the tools in your toolbox that you need in order to be the best version of you. Empowering you with education, support and community, we aim to leave you better than we found you.
Welcome to Motherhood Collective, your sisterhood in motherhood. We’re glad you’re here. ❤
