Community Outreach

Want to help a MommaStronger in need?

Part of our mission at MommaStrong is to keep the monthly price low enough so that it is accessible to most people. From time to time, we may all find ourselves in less than ideal financial situations. And since this program is all about community and support, you can help other mommas in need by emailing [email protected]. This is an anonymous process that matches people who can offer help, with those in need of a little help. Typically, we offer a 6 month gift card ($30) but can customize as necessary. If you are in a position to contribute, we hope you will consider this option.

Want to help us reach Mommas outside of our Community?

As we are continuing all the awesome work of building and maintaining the best MommaStrong program, we are ready to see how we can serve mommas in need outside of our program. As a first step, we are piloting some options for our community to help families in the San Francisco area (with help from an active Momma—Thanks Lindsay!).

We've surfaced these specific Community Outreach opportunities not because Mommas need one more thing to do, but because getting out of our own heads and helping others can give us some much needed healing and perspective. Plus, solidarity. 

Keep checking back as we will be adding organizations, opportunities and locations in the future. 

#1 Send new items to charity organizations 

We’ve selected an organization doing inspiring work to serve women and worked with them to gather a list of needed items. We’ve intentionally included items that help women as individuals as so often supplies for baby are plentiful and the postpartum momma is left to fend for herself. 

Select items from this Amazon wish list:

At checkout:

  • Make sure to select the Gift Registry Address for delivery during checkout.
  • Mark each item as a gift and type MOMMASTRONG on the gift receipt so they can track our impact as a group.
  • If you’d like a donation receipt for tax purposes, also include your name and email address on the gift receipt
    Bonus: Use Amazon Smile to boost your impact. 

#2 Donate to provide MommaStrong memberships for mommas in need

Email us at [email protected] to find out how. The organizations we’re working with will help connect us with mommas who could benefit.

" I was having a really hard time trying to fit exercise into my day. I was hesitant at first but then I signed up and loved it. I do it first thing in the morning when no one is up to bother me or ask me a million questions! It's my tiny bit of "me time" before the morning craziness. I really love the motivation Courtney gives, her honesty, realness, and hilarity to this thing we all have in common but experience differently. She makes me laugh daily and I look forward to my workouts. Her message that motherhood is messy but we can still take care of ourselves, even in the midst of the chaos of life, and that it can be done in the same setting as my own makes it much more motivational then some fake studio where the person barely breaks a sweat or gets winded! It is so empowering and makes it all the more meaningful in every way. "

"I was having a really hard time trying to fit any exercise into my day. I was a little hesitant at first but then I figured, it was really affordable so I signed up. I do it first thing in the morning when no one is up to bother me or ask me a million questions! It's my tiny bit of "me time" before the morning craziness. I really love the motivation Courtney gives, her honesty, realness, and hilarity to this thing we all have in common but experience differently. Her ongoing message that motherhood is messy but we can still take care of ourselves, even in the midst of the chaos of life, and that it can be done in the same setting as my own makes it much more motivational then some fake studio where the person barely breaks a sweat or gets winded! It is so empowering and makes it all the more meaningful in every way. "

"Mommastrong has helped me build strength and real fitness. What I didn't realize initially, was how important my daily fifteen minutes with Courtney would be when my favorite grandmother started the slow process of dying. Courtney's reminders to show up and win ugly have helped me so much with the grieving process and help me keep going even though I often want to crawl into my bed and cry. I can manage to set aside my grief for fifteen minutes of self care with an amazing, understanding and honest cheerleader. And since I am showing up for that tiny nugget of my day, I'm also showing up more in life. I'm playing with my kids instead of crying on my couch. I'm enjoying being able to move so that as I age I can continue to be vital and show up in my own life, and the remainder of my grandmother's. I am losing someone dear, but I am not quitting myself.
