What Is MotherWise?

What is MotherWise?

MotherWise's mission is to empower women and their families to thrive during pregnancy and after a new baby is born. The program is free and includes 6 weeks of workshops plus one-on-one coaching for mothers on knowing themselves, what healthy relationships are to them, communication and relationship skills for all kinds of relationships, and connecting with a newborn baby.

Support for Attending

We provide free transportation (typically via Uber), food, and childcare for each workshop and visit with us. We offer workshops and appointments during the day and evening. You also earn prepaid Visa Debit Cards as you complete the program (more than $200!).

FAQ's

1. Do you have to be a first-time mom to participate?

Not at all! Our workshops include women who are experienced mothers and others that are first-time moms. We also welcome pregnant women who are planning or exploring adoption as an option. 

2. Can my partner attend the classes with me? What about my sister, friend, or mom?

The only individuals allowed to attend the MotherWise workshops are the women included in the program. There's an opportunity for program participants to invite their partners to join them for a couple's workshop that we host quarterly throughout the year. 

3. Who teaches the workshops?

Each week, you’ll be with two facilitators who are trained to teach the material. There will also be community members joining a few sessions to give you information on local resources like GED classes, ESL classes, and many more! 

4. Can I breastfeed during the workshops?

Absolutely. You are welcome to breastfeed during the workshop or we have private rooms if you would prefer additional privacy. We can also store formula bottles or medication in our classroom fridge.

5. What types of gift cards can I receive in the program?

If you complete the phone survey and are randomly assigned to the survey track, you will receive $30 in Wal-Mart gift cards. If you are randomly assigned to the program track, you will receive a $10 Wal-Mart gift card and $20 on a re-loadable VISA gift card that we will continue to use throughout your time in the program

6. I’ve never used Uber before but I need transportation to MotherWise, how does that work?

Not a problem! We’ll order the Uber for you and text you the driver’s name and license plate. Uber will then text you when they are arriving so you can communicate directly with the driver! The Uber is free for participants to use!
