In the Absence of the Village, Mothers Struggle Most

In the absence of the village, we’re disadvantaged like never before. We may have more freedoms than our foremothers, but our burden remains disproportionately, oppressively heavy.

Mamas // How many of you have struggled finding your “village”? This post resonates with so many of us, but here’s the good news: your “village” still exists – and we’re right here! 🤗 Strength in Motherhood is our motto because we’re so much more than great workouts. We’re playgroups and mom’s nights, we’re a support system who gets you, we’re emotional and physical transformation, and we’re relationships for life. So if you’re looking for your village, join us this week ❤️ #strengthinmotherhood #themotherhoodisreal #FIT4MOM
