the project

The pop up “Unshakeable Motherhood” Project is an exclusive group for new mothers, veteran mothers and soon to be mothers with similar desires and interest. The project will provide members with the opportunity to consistently be refreshed, build relationships with a community of moms to be restored by education and proper guidance. The mission is to establish a community of diverse women who support, exhort and encourage one another along the journey of motherhood. 

The goal is to ensure Pennsylvania adopts and maintains an adequate system for inspiring and educating women and mothers through proper parenting skills, financial foundations and navigation support. Being a member of pop up “Unshakeable Motherhood” is truly an exceptional experience that is unmatched by typical mom groups. The hope is to cultivate a space where moms come to feel comfortable, supported and encouraged. Which will lead up to the final event called the "Unshakeable Motherhood" One Night Retreat. This event would be a fun and eye-opening experience for new and expecting parents. 

The event will feature exhibitors and vendors. Organizations typically include doulas, midwives and OBs, pediatricians, lactation consultants, chiropractors, photographers, prenatal fitness experts, pediatric dental practices, child care facilities, book shops, baby boutiques, early childhood music programs, and more. There’s a strong focus on education — we have expert-led seminars, mini-classes, and panel discussions on topics related to pregnancy, childbirth, babies, and the transition to parenthood, as well as demonstrations designed to teach skills like baby cloth diapering or infant CPR, etc. ​

the steps

Our event will take place on the Northside, a date and location TBA. 

 

why we're doing it

I am doing it because Black Women need more resources in surviving childbirth and beyond.  There is a public health crisis as maternal deaths are on the rise in America and our communities since 1990. 

By 2013, rates had more than doubled. The CDC now estimates that 700 to 900 new and expectant mothers die in the U.S. each year, and an additional 500,000 women experience life-threatening postpartum complications. More than half of these deaths and near deaths are from preventable causes, and a disproportionate number of the women suffering are black.”
-Harvard Public Health
