Mothership Updates: A Month of Storytelling

Stories are foundational to human connection and are foundational to Mothership’s work.

This past month, we embraced the power of storytelling.

  • Superfamilies Photo Contest: We ran a month-long photo contest, where we were delighted by your visual stories of strong, healthy families.
  • Storytelling Workshop: We presented on the power of using storytelling as a tool for health service providers to connect with their WIC clients at the National WIC Association Annual Conference.
  • Make the Breast Pump Not Suck Hackathon: We traveled to the MIT Media Lab, where the stories of moms and families were central to inspiring change and innovation not only in breast pumps but in the postpartum experience as a whole.

Thank you for sharing your stories. They are inspiring. They are educational. They are powerful. 

Sincerely,

Martelle
