This October, we’re shining the spotlight on something quite dear to us — community. The word alone embraces a simple, yet profound truth: while motherhood is an intensely personal journey, it is also communal. Through the dance of diapers, sleepless nights, first words, and first steps, we flourish as mothers when we’re surrounded by a supportive network.
Traditionally, a tribe or tight-knit community was the bedrock of this support. And while the dynamics have shifted in the modern world, the heart of this togetherness remains essential. These days, besides our partners, our moms, or BFFs —who might be old hands or new to the motherhood journey—we can also find support in motherhood groups and online communities. These spaces have emerged as vital platforms for us to connect, share experiences, and find a bit of comfort and advice. I recall, after the loss of my own mother, turning to an online village called “The Motherless Mothers” to navigate the new world I was facing. Finding a judgment-free zone with others who were on a similar journey was the start of my healing, and I will be forever grateful for this. Mom communities are where mutual understanding meets support and they enable us to draw strength from each other. After all, it takes a village not only to raise a child but also to support a mom!
Acknowledging this truth, we at Matrescence are huge believers in the strength of community and are dedicated to providing resources, products, and initiatives that resonate with and uplift you. We’ve walked this path, we continue to walk it, and we’re here to help build a circle of care that makes supporting moms much easier for everyone involved.
As we delve into and celebrate these sources of support around us, we recognize that our mission to “mother the mother” goes beyond being a guiding principle. It’s a heartfelt call to action, ensuring that every mom feels valued, understood, and supported. It serves as a gentle reminder that, while mothers are steadfast pillars of strength, we too need our own pillars to empower us on our unique journeys.
