This is what motherhood looks like. We breastfeed, we formula feed. We struggle with infertility, our babies are happy surprises. We’re rich, we’re poor. We’re gay, we’re straight. We use soothers, we don’t. We laugh. We cry.
And through it all we support each other.
MomsUnitingMoms.com (M.U.M.) is a site dedicated to moms supporting each other in motherhood. This is a safe community. Sometimes we share tough information and views we might not agree with, but our discussions are free of shaming- no mud slinging here! (Scientific American posted a great article recently: Why Is Everyone on the Internet So Angry?)
MomsUnitingMoms.com was founded by Shauna Stewart Douglas. Shauna lives in Kelowna, BC, Canada with her husband, her spunky daughter and her two crazy dogs. You can find her on her personal blog at Fido & Wino.
MomsUnitingMoms.com was inspired by a series of support groups for moms she started shortly after her daughter was born. The goal of the groups was to create a judge-free zone where moms could share their ideas and questions in a safe place.
Our first online mom community started back in 2012. We wrote the name of the group on little pieces of paper and handed it out to women holding adorable, squishy babies… and voila! A whole gaggle of bleary eyed women to chat with at 2 o’clock in the morning was at our fingertips! Learn more about the Mommble community.

No More Mommy Wars!: a photo project
Over 30 Victoria, BC moms from the original support group came together to brainstorm and model for the final product.
They have bravely shared their truths in order to send a very powerful message to moms everywhere:
We support you in motherhood. No More Mommy Wars!
