When I started making my own way into a career in Palm Beach photography, I knew I needed to find support. One of the most daunting things is starting out on your own– you know where you want to go, but you don’t know exactly how to get there. I was blessed to find an incredible mentor to guide me, along with a few talented photographers who would become my friends. With any new venture in life, we all need support. Especially when it comes to pregnancy and motherhood. Women need to find strength and celebration in groups; places where we can feel safe as we all navigate this new chapter in our lives. That old saying, “it takes a village”? Well, it really does.
This group is a nationwide organization focused on providing care to mothers, babies and families. It’s a place where everyone is welcomed and made to feel at home. Pregnancy can feel overwhelming sometimes, and here you can find peace and comfort among mentors and other mothers-to-be. They’ve got just about everything: fitness classes, wellness seminars, workshops, and support groups. If you feel like you don’t know where to begin your journey of finding a communal source of support, start here.
A lot of women want to be in their best health during and after pregnancy, so they can be the best mom for their child. This wonderful fitness center is catered to all mamas, pre and postnatal, and provides group classes to become the best version of yourself. Pregnancy can be a time when a lot of women lose their sense of selves, which I completely understand. Finding a group of strong women who are all working toward the same goal for their little ones can be such a light in the dark. Their focus is on empowering mamas in motherhood– what is better than that?
I have talked about this organization in a previous blog post about birthing centers! I knew I needed to mention it again here. Centered on spiritual wellness for mothers, they offer a special blessingway ceremony to welcome you into motherhood. The focus of this group is to bring a sense of peace and power to your pregnancy journey, one that is beautiful and powerful. A team of incredible doulas and nurses guides mamas through all stages of pregnancy, and provides postnatal care as well.
The mom collective is focused on providing a source of support and resources to all mothers, before, during and after birth. It’s a collection of hardworking local mamas. They knew there needed to be a space where women could come together and teach one another about motherhood. These incredible women provide so many services. Insightful articles about parenting; organize events; and a commiment to empowering mothers with knowledge and community.
The most important thing to me is that every mother has a safe and beautiful journey throughout pregnancy into motherhood. If you need to reach out for more resources or need more support, please don’t hesitate to reach out.I would love to chat more about finding communal support throughout your pregnancy.
