Friends with Health Benefits

Mothership is a new way to get personalized health information and support that matters to you and your family from health professional partners who get you. We know all families are unique, and there's no one-size-fits-all approach to raising healthy children.

My best mom friend is also a nurse. She understands me, doesn’t judge, and also has medical knowledge.

Mothership Partners

After listening to family stories, we learned that there is information overload on the internet and parents are often turning to other parents for advice and support because they feel that other parents get them. We also know after listening to health experts that they have a lot of trustworthy information to share.

Enter Mothership Partners. We are creating a digital community where health experts, who are also recent parents, will be creating content and endorsing resources on health topics not always well-covered in doctors’ visits. These Partners are relatable. They share science-based information. And, they understand the practical realities of parenting. It is our vision that Mothership Partners will represent the diversity of families in the country and that parents can see themselves in them.

Our first phase of Mothership Partners will focus on healthy eating topics with dietitians who are also recent parents. They will be blogging, uploaded recorded classes, hosting live Q&A sessions, and recommending other blog posts, videos, and podcasts that they find helpful and credible.

In the future, we hope to include breastfeeding, child behavior, mental health and other healthy lifestyle topics as well as Partners with expertise in these areas. 

After searching the internet, I finally found an article with practical tips on weaning only to realize halfway through that it was intended for stay-at-home moms and not moms going back to work like me.
