In 2010, seven women met in New York to form a mommy group. Commiserating about the typical issues they faced as new mothers, things became more complicated with postpartum depression and anxiety, developmental delays, and a failed marriage. Through it all, they learned lessons from one another that the "experts" hadn't delivered.
Journalist Elizabeth Isadora Gold reached out to other mommy groups and found that mothers across all class, geographic, religious, and racial boundaries appear to be searching for the same thing: a way to be strong, loving, engaged parents—without losing their sense of self. Her writing about motherhood, books, music, and feminism has appeared in The New York Times, The Believer, Tin House and elsewhere.
