Heard of Moms for Moms Day yet? Not so long ago, The Bump and CTWorkingMoms.com got together for a photo shoot where moms and moms-to-be shared their biggest Mommy Truths in a safe, friendly space. We created the day — along with the team from CT Working Moms — because we want every woman to feel comfortable, confident and proud of her choices as a mother (and mama-to-be). We were so inspired by the CT Working Moms Campaign for Judgment-Free Motherhood shoot that we wanted to expand the message by encouraging moms all over to stand up and support one another.

The journey to motherhood is flooded with decisions (from the type of diapers you’ll buy, to the ways you’ll feed your infant, to the sleep-training methods you’ll subscribe to) and our goal is to support, encourage and stand behind each and every mother’s choices — and Moms for Moms Day is our way of putting an end to the judgments that moms make toward one another.

On March 4th, we’ll be asking moms across the country (and around the globe!) to share their own Mommy Truths on social media using the hashtag #Moms4Moms and tagging @TheBump and @CTWorkingMoms. Together, we’re all one step closer to finally closing the door on the Mommy Wars.

Join us by downloading our printable template and sharing your photos with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Grab your best friend, your best girlfriends, a few moms from play group or a coworker you’ve never met before! We’re all in this together. That same night, we’ll be hosting an event in our downtown NYC offices to celebrate Moms for Moms Day. We’ll be live-streaming a Google Event from 6:30pm to 7:30pm EST where we discuss positive ways to put an end to judgments made by moms. 

Take a peek at the shoot we held with moms from CT Working Moms and The Bump and special guests Alicia Ybarbo and Mary Ann Zoellner, co-authors of the book Sh*tty Mom and Nicole Feliciano, founder of the site MomTrends:
