In our modern, fast-paced world it can seem like there are more questions than answers about what the future of parenthood holds.

That's why Motherly is thrilled to announce the launch of Apparently, a new digital magazine with Medium exploring what it means to be a parent today—and what we can do to make the future brighter for all parents. Each month, we'll connect with thought-leaders, experts and writers to share unique perspectives, science-backed reporting and sharp insights on the issues that matter most to parents.

In our first issue, we're tackling the theme of "gray areas,"—the many aspects of parenthood that don't have black-and-white answers and force us to embrace living in the gray, including:

Parenthood Is: Getting Comfortable in the Gray

I'm a Collage Parent—and Here's What That Means

There's No 'Balance' When It Comes to Working Motherhood — and That Works for Me

I Had Two Minutes to Figure Out If I Was a Snowplow Parent or a Free-Range Mama

... and more.

Join the conversation at Apparently as we continue to discover what the future of parenthood holds. We can't wait to hear from you.
