We want you to feel empowered throughout your pregnancy & 100% prepared before baby arrives. Sound too good to be true? It's not!
According to reports from the Harvard School of Education, 51% of mothers with young children report feeling "extreme loneliness." We're here to combat that. With this online group of supportive, like-minded mamas who will love you and not judge you, you can grow your village before baby even arrives.
While a supportive community is key to parenting happiness, it's not the only important takeaway. We want you to feel confident in decision-making, and having a hive mind you trust to sort through your parenting plans gives you just that. Plus, we offer research-based tips and tools, support resources, and expert Q&As to help you make the best choices for yourselves in all areas of pregnancy, labor, and early parenthood.

I'm a Type-A mom who was totally overwhelmed trying to prepare for my son's birth. I was looking at a million websites a day, and information overload left me curled up on the couch, unable to make decisions, feeling like a bad mom already.
Even though many of my close friends had children, I felt so alone during my first pregnancy. No one was going through it when I was, and knowing what questions to ask and to whom was a nightmare.
No mom should ever have to feel that way!
Looking back, there's so much information I wish I'd had in one place, without the overload. More than anything, I wish I'd had community.
I'm giving you what I wish had been available for me. Join us to feel supported and empowered, trusting that you have a reliable one-stop-shop with your new village of friends!

How is this different from Facebook pregnancy groups?
1. It'scarefully moderatedby community members who receive compensation to keep it open minded and safe for you. Remember, we're about undefining! We want you to feel like you can do this journey your own way with support.
2. A more organized chat function. Our chats are carefully threaded so that you can find what you need and connect with the right people, while still having access to the whole hivemind.
3. More than just conversations! Resources, guides, article links, course recommendations, and monthly expert panels make this community extremely unique--and helpful!
A lot of Facebook groups aren't well moderated, so I don't know what I can trust. How will this be different?
I created this group, and the Undefining Motherhood website, in a quest to make it easy for you to find reliable information. In terms of trustworthiness, that's our #1 goal.
Part of having a PhD means I LOVE research and fact checking. I want you to be able to have casual conversations with other women experiencing the same things you are, but our team will also work to ensure you're always getting reliable information.
In terms of moderation, we have a team that will moderate the group, with clear rules up front.
What about privacy? Will people be able to see that I'm a member?
Our groups are completely private, so only non-members can see who other members are.
Unless someone has paid to be a member of the group, they will not know that you're a member, what's being said, or anything happening inside the group.
I haven't announced yet. Is it safe to join? What if I know someone in the group in real life?
One of the hardest parts of pregnancy is the first trimester, when you need so much support but are afraid to get it.
Our private group is a safe space for you, and we have clear rules that what happens in the group stays in the group. No screenshots, period.
I want to join, but I'm nervous. What happens if I experience a loss?
I've been there, mama, and so have many of our members. In the event that the worst happens, we'll remove you from the group (unless you wish to remain) and refund your money if it's less than 15 days into the month.
We'll also give you tons of resources and support. You deserve love during hard times, and we're here for it.
Do you offer refunds?
Because you will gain immediate access to the group and all it has to offer, there are no refunds on membership.
However, cancellation is easy and you can cancel at any time.
