MAMA CIRCLE provides premium gatherings for pregnant, new, and experienced mamas to come together, grow, and totally rock this motherhood thing! Our groups blend coaching, peer support, baby+mama social time, and special guests to create an authentic, fun experience to find friends and thrive as a mama.
We also offer retreats every few months to help mamas recharge, connect, and spend time focusing on themselves.
The MAMA CIRCLE Doula Registry helps connect Memphis families do birth professionals who can serve them during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.
Our mission is to create a space for mamas to come together and feel safe, heard, and supported. At MC, you might hear folks asking questions about baby sleep, how to practice better self care, postpartum sex, navigating relationships, parenting styles, breastfeeding, how to enrich your baby's growth, birth complications, and many more topics that our mamas are encouraged to share about. At the forefront of all is the emphasis on IDENTITY. Moms want to figure out who they are after the birth of their baby/babies. Giving birth, adopting, or having a child through surrogacy marks a huge SHIFT in identity for women, their partners, and their family. After birth sometimes we feel lost, we don't recognize our bodies or ourselves. MAMA CIRCLE supports women as they come back to themselves, helping our members find balance between motherhood, personhood, couplehood, passion, and career.
Joining MAMA CIRCLE not only offers moms a community, but also mama mentorship that digs deep to meet you where you are and help reflect back to you how you can grow: as a mother and as more.
