It all started when...

I, Lisa Abramson, had my daughter Lucy in 2014 and experienced the fantastic whirlwind and thorough butt kicking that is becoming a new mom.

And Because...

It's time for a new narrative around modern motherhood.

We've outgrown the self-sacrificing mother ideal - a mom with no needs of her own, always giving, giving, giving and ending up totally overwhelmed and depleted. 

But we often get conflicting messages from society, friends and family, as well as a general onslaught of opinions, during pregnancy, and as new moms. 

The information overload can make it hard to quiet the noise and tap into our inner wisdom.

I’m glad you’re here. Together, we will say what everyone else is thinking, but what most don’t dare say out loud.

Let’s create a new narrative around modern motherhood that takes into account that when you become a mom, you don't stop being YOU.
