“Moments like this is why I started Melanin Mommas. Feeling lost and alone in my troubles I wanted to start something for Mommas like me that were going through similar things. This motherhood journey is difficult and can sometimes break you down. But with a community of mothers to help lift you up, gives a profound meaning to It Takes a Village.” – Wafer Tetevi
Melanin Mommas was created by Wafer to give young mothers of color a safe space where they could share their thoughts, fears, wonderful moments, and advice on motherhood. This network of wonder women seeks to provide inspiration, motivation and a necessary support system for one of the greatest journeys of life.
