Manifesto

She’s the seasoned mom, the new mom, the expecting mom.

She’s trying to become a mom. Fierce, smart, always multi-tasking.
She is passionate about life, her family, and her own self-care.

She wants to learn new things and seeks advice on everything
from vacation planning to sleep training to prioritizing time for herself.

She’s the working mom, the stay-at-home mom;
She needs a bit of guidance, she wants to be inspired.

She is The Everymom. This is for her.
