Mission: Empowering women to reclaim themselves and ignite their passions beyond “mom”.
Vision: Many women feel consumed by the societal pressures and stigmas that society imposes on us after the transition into motherhood. Due to the lack of pre-natal and post-natal support, as well as lack of paid maternity leave, women are forced to leave their careers to raise their children or return to their workplace before their bodies have had a chance to recover from childbirth. The Mom Net is a network of mothers and organizations aimed at connecting women with the resources they need to thrive in a society that still discriminates against mothers.
The Mom Net is there to empower women at every stage of motherhood. We are here if you are struggling to tell your employer that you are pregnant for fear of losing your job. We are here if you decide to leave to workforce to take care of your new baby. We are here if you are ready to get back into the workforce. We are here if you want to start your own business. We are to help you gain financial stability. We are here if the unthinkable happens.
