Corrections policy

To report an error in our reporting, please contact Motherly's news editor, Heather Marcoux at [email protected].

At Motherly we are committed to providing our audience with correct information and factual news coverage. In the event that we find we've made a mistake, we will correct it promptly and issue a corrections statement within the article.

A corrections statement is not required for simple typos, but if a fact or meaning is changed, a statement will be posted and dated. The position of the correction is at the discretion of the editors and depends on the significance of the error. Important corrections statements will be posted at the top of the article, while less impactful corrections will be posted at the bottom of the article.

Corrections vs. Updates:

A correction will be issued when we've made an error in reporting. An update will be issued when we are adding additional information to a news story that was not included in the original post. Either will be dated.

Sample correction:

[Correction, May 30, 2018: An earlier version of this post incorrectly identified Pink's husband as Corey Hart. His name is Carey Hart. We regret the error.]

Sample update:

[Update, May 30, 2018: The CDC has released updated breast pump cleaning guidelines. ]
