Becoming a mother is hard.
Let's make it easier.

 

WHAT IS MOTHER MATTERS?

Mother Matters is a movement.  A call to arms.  A step towards adding the word "mothercare" to the vernacular.  (After all, we already have "childcare" and "eldercare," right?)  Born as a blog, Mother Matters offers free, researched-based, simple, low-to-no cost support any new mother can use, today, to make her transition to motherhood a little bit easier.  From learning how to stimulate an acupressure point to enhance lactation, to a simple drawing exercise to reduce stress, Mother Matters is making the work of motherhood, the hardest job there is, a little bit easier.  

 

Wherever you are on the motherhood journey, however you are finding the experience, you are welcome here.  Take a look around.  Try out an exercise, read a blog post (they're short, because mamas don't have time for much), or check out the articles to which Mother Matters creator Dayna M. Kurtz, LMSW, CPT has written or contributed in the links below.  The mothercare movement begins here.
