Why Mom’s Hierarchy of Needs?
When so many of us ignore burning ideas to launch projects into the world after we have kids, what gets in our way? When we’re at work yet thinking about everything going on at home, what’s behind it and how can we change it for our children?
Mom’s Hierarchy of Needs is a community where Moms can feel safe, understood and supported in the desire to reduce stress, prioritize self-care, dream big dreams and live in possibility. Where it’s okay to step outside of the ‘Mom box’ we’re all expected to fit in.
The ‘hierarchy’ was developed with input from over 100 Moms and Mom’s Hierarchy of Needs research studies are focused on making us stronger, healthier and happier.
