Take A Deep Breath, Mama. We’re So Glad You’re Here.

UX/UI Designer

DESCRIPTION:

You may have heard people say that becoming a mother is one of the best and most blissful times in a person’s life. But, if you are a mother, or are close to someone who recently became one, you may have a different perspective. While being a mother can be a rewarding experience, at times, many others struggle with the overwhelming demands of caring for a newborn, child, or teenager. Mothers often sacrifice everything for their children; an unspoken expectation learned through their own perceptions and societal pressures.

Mothers are reporting feelings of anxiety and burnout at an alarming rate, even more so with the added stresses of the pandemic felt by families worldwide. Mindful Mamas is on a mission to change the way people think about motherhood. We are developing a product to better support mothers in their mental and emotional health, and are committed to making an impact on maternal wellbeing.
