TeamMotherly wants to hear from you! If you’re interested in sharing your motherhood perspective—from first-person essays to evidence-based, service-driven content to original videos and guest posts—we offer a variety of ways to collaborate with us. Read on for the details.
MotherlyStories are first person, 600-1,500 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. 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 MotherlyStories:
- I’m a survivor. I’m a NICU mama.
- Motherhood is filling your cup—and draining it at the same time
- I was shamed for breastfeeding in public as a fat woman
- To the mom who loves motherhood—but misses her freedom, too
- What I wish people knew about raising a ‘wild child’
Are you an expert?
We collaborate with pediatricians, OBGYNs, midwives, nurses, doulas, lactation consultants, family therapists, researchers, teachers, child development experts, nutritionists, career coaches and financial advisors (just to name a few!) to bring research-backed, evidence-based information and inspiration to our audience. If you’re an expert in your field, we’d love to help you share your best advice with our amazing community of mothers.
Do you have a video you’d like to share?
We love to feature our community’s authentic #momlife clips in our videos. We are always looking for honest depictions of the heartwarming, hilarious, and unglamorous moments of motherhood. Submit your captured moments for a chance to be featured in an upcoming Motherly video.
Join The Motherly Collective
The brand-new Motherly Collective guest contributor network will showcase the stories, experiences and advice from brands, writers and experts who want to share their story with our community.
We believe that there is no single story of motherhood, and that every mother’s journey is unique. By amplifying each mother’s experience and offering expert-driven content, we can support, inform and inspire each other on this incredible journey.
