1 in 5 new moms experience a maternal mental health condition. However, 40% of
Black moms experience maternal mental health symptoms - nearly twice the rate of
all women. Yet the stigma surrounding mental health and the pressure to be "strong" make it difficult for Black women to ask for and receive support. We strive to change that narrative.
At Motherhood Redefined we empower moms with resources for healing mentally, emotionally, and physically. Through our counseling services, interactive community, and engaging events, we're on a mission to redefine the expectations of motherhood by making wellness more accessible and inclusive.

LaToya Hamm Wilson., LSW, PMH-C
LaToya Hamm Wilson is a Licensed Social Worker, Therapist, and multifaceted mom who is committed to making mental health topics relatable and maternal wellness equitable for women of color. LaToya received her BS from Chatham University, her MSW from the University of Pittsburgh, and certification in Perinatal Mental Health from Postpartum International.
In August of 2020, LaToya leveraged her clinical education and experience to birth Motherhood Redefined after noticing the disproportionate impact on Black moms during the Covid 19 shut down and racial reckoning following the murder of George Floyd. Accessing mental health services became more difficult and the digital resources that were available didn’t take into account the systems of oppression marginalized groups faced, so the platform was created to fill the void.
Motherhood Redefined has since evolved from an Instagram page to a global movement, helping over 40,000 women tap into their inner strength, experience deeper self awareness, and change the emotional inheritance for themselves and their children.
LaToya is on a mission to shift the narrative around Black maternal mental health, and she's doing it one mom at a time.
