Testimonials

Helping Mamas is why I do what I do!  Here’s what a few have had to say:

“Bethany is a genuine, honest and caring young mom. She laughs through the ups and downs of life and tells it like it is. Near or far, I definitely want to be in her village.” – Sarah, Pennsylvania

“Bethany offered great information to help during my struggle with milk supply. She also is extremely caring and checked up on me a few days later. I love reading her blogs online. She is very relatable and I would recommend her to all my breastfeeding friends!” – Daniela, Ohio

“Bethany delivers real-world insight and advice with a warm and calming presence. I’ve never met a more genuine, caring and thoughtful individual. Even as a busy mom of two, she is always upbeat and accessible. She has supported me for over five years and I can’t imagine my life without her guidance and love.” – Alex, Vermont

“When any woman learns she is going to become a Mama it is exciting, nerve-wracking, and down-right scary!  It would be great if all of these worries went away once the baby arrived but it can sometimes get worse!  It truly does take a village to raise a child and I am so grateful that I had Bethany leading my village.  There was nothing too embarrassing, stupid, or petty that I felt I couldn’t ask her.  She always made me feel like what I was experiencing was 100% normal because despite what the fluffy rainbow websites might say, it was normal!  She encouraged me to do one thing – keep loving my baby and being a good Mama.  She never told me how I “should” do something.  She let me know her thoughts without making me feel like it was law.  I can honestly say that Bethany is one of the key motivators for helping me meet my breastfeeding goal for my son.  Bethany will be there for you when you need her without intervening in your personal Mama style.  I would choose her to lead my Mama Village any day!” – Michaela, Pennsylvania

“Bethany is not only kind and empathetic- but also someone who can always make me laugh or find a smile in the situation. She has carried all of this into her motherhood journey as well as all of the connections and experiences that she encounters along the way. Bethany’s blog posts are like conversations I have with her- honest, relatable, and funny all at the same time. I can’t wait to see what comes next!” – Amanda, Massachusetts

“There’s a reason the saying goes, “it takes a village to raise a child.” So short of nabbing ourselves a couple of sister wives, we have to make our own village — be a village for each other. A village made from compassion, and kindness; understanding and sisterly solidarity. A village doesn’t always have to see eye-to-eye, or agree on everything. A village doesn’t have to be homogeneous. A village need only be comprised of those dedicated to building each other up, rather than tearing each other down. Whether she knows it or not, she has been my village since she and I met in 2013, when we were both sleep deprived lunatics with tiny babies working full time. Now she is expanding that village — and you can be apart of it. Having Bethany be part of my village has meant always having someone in my corner, having an rock in moments of self-doubt or panic, and just not feeling so darn alone all of the time. A village of strong, supportive, loving mothers, becoming our best selves — together? Count me in.” – Lauren, Florida

“As a mom to three littles (ages 1, 4, and 5), I know how important it is to have someone you can connect with – to share the joys, as well as the less-than-glamorous realities of motherhood. Reading Bethany’s blog posts, I often silently say “Yes, exactly!” She identifies so perfectly all of the ins and outs of the everyday challenges having small ones can bring, but also steps back to reflect on the big picture of the family she is raising, and what a beautiful, important job that is. I am so grateful for her words, and her vision of mamas supporting one another!” – Alison, Massachusetts
