Why We Chose Her:
Motherly is an active online guide and gathering place for millennial mothers that offers a popular weekly email newsletter that “empowers women in four areas: Work, Life, Love, and Child.” What makes this company and its CEOs so special is that their entire reason for being, for how they do business and why they are growing by leaps and bounds is a genuine caring for women who were being patronized, marginalized or just plain not recognized because they didn’t fit into the societal image of mothers.
Instead of trying to get views and visitors by frightening or sensational stories aimed at scaring or agitating like many other “mommy” sites, they offer uplifting articles and videos and online classes, including a free, personalized birth class, and newsletters “that guide and inspire women through the journey of motherhood.”
It might seem incredible that these women aren’t just trying to sell something. They came out of the gate trying to serve their audience. “This woman is looking for an entirely different support system, one that’s authentic, supportive, nonjudgmental, inspiring, and modern. We believe she sees possibility and she sees motherhood as aspirational.”
