MotherlyStories are first person, 700-900 word stories, reflecting on the insights and issues you’ve experienced in motherhood—and the wisdom you’ve gained along the way. They address a specific pain point of mom life that you have been through or are going through right now. They help women realize they’re not alone, and they never judge. (They’re cool like that.) Instead, they inspire other mamas with stories of meaning, hope and a realization that, “you’ve got this.” MotherlyStories appear on our site, our social media channels, or could even be turned into a video.
Some example of great Motherly Stories—
- How getting rid of stuff saved my motherhood
- I'm a survivor. I'm a NICU mama.
- To the mom who loves motherhood—but misses her freedom, too
- Why waiting to find out your baby’s gender can be (surprise!) awesome
