Women of color face disproportionate mental health challenges, however, due to feelings of embarrassment, shame, and the pressure to appear “strong” their struggles are underreported and unsupported. With a commitment to dismantling mental health stigmas and challenging societal norms, we’re on a mission to empower women with the resources they need to take off their capes and confidently navigate their journey through motherhood.
MEET OUR FOUNDER!
LaToya Hamm Wilson., LSW, PMH-C
LaToya Hamm Wilson is a Licensed Social Worker, Therapist, and mom of six committed to destigmatizing therapy and increasing access to wellness for moms of color.
She holds a Bachelors Degree from Chatham University , a Masters Degree from the University of Pittsburgh, and is certified in Perinatal Mental health by Postpartum International.
In 2020, LaToya leveraged her clinical education and personal experience to birth Motherhood Redefined after noticing the impact on the mental health of moms of color during the Covid 19 shut down and racial reckoning that followed the tragic murder of George Floyd.
Finding therapists of color and accessing safe spaces that valued their experiences was challenging, so the platform was created to help fill the void.
What began as a response to an urgent need has evolved into a global organization helping thousands of mothers to discover their inner strength, cultivate self-awareness, and change the emotional legacy for their children.
LaToya is rewriting the narrative of motherhood for moms of color and leading the charge for them to heal, thrive, and prioritize wellness while parenting.
