Women of color face a higher risk of postpartum mental health challenges, yet due to feelings of embarrassment, shame, and fear of discriminatory attitudes rooted in racial stigma they remain the most undervalued and unsupported. We are committed to changing this narrative. Through the dismantling of mental health stigmas and challenging societal norms, we're on a mission to empower women with the resources they need to heal, thrive, and navigate their unique journeys through motherhood.

LaToya Hamm Wilson., LSW, PMH-C
LaToya Hamm Wilson is a Licensed Social Worker, Therapist, and mom dedicated to destigmatizing therapy and increasing access to wellness for moms of color.
LaToya holds a BS from Chatham University, an MSW 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 disproportionate impact on the well-being of Black mothers during the Covid-19 shutdown and racial reckoning that followed the tragic murder of George Floyd.
Accessing culturally responsive services and safe spaces where they can express their feelings openly and honestly was challenging. In response, the platform was created to help fill the void.
Motherhood Redefined has since evolved into a global movement, empowering thousands of moms to tap into their inner strength, experience self-awareness, and redefine the emotional legacy for their children.
LaToya is breaking the stigma surrounding mental health and empowering women of color to heal generational wounds, reclaim their identity, and make self-care a priority while navigating the journey of motherhood.
