About

Hello Everyone!

We want to create a safe space for all mothers to feel supported and inspired. We highlight the messiness of becoming a new parent. We talk candidly about motherhood because we believe that speaking honestly and truthfully about the things that are tough help others who are struggling to feel less isolated and part of a larger community. We have expert guests on our episodes like Naturopathic Doctors, Sleep Consultants and Lactation Consultants, so you can get real expert advice. We host community events to connect mothers in real life, support programs where women can talk honestly about what life is like as a mother without judgement or ridicule. We also host mom's night outs, so moms can leave their child at home and have an evening all to themselves.

Our Goals And Dreams

This started as a passion project where we wanted to record our struggles and triumphs in hopes of normalizing them for all mothers. Our short-term goal was to share this with our fellow mothers, friends and family. That’s it! After receiving such inspiring feedback and a incredible engagement, we quickly realized that The Sinking Mothership is much bigger than that. Our dream is to help people find connections during the most challenging time of their lives.

We now have a growing supportive community that has been nothing but encouraging and kind to one another. Our passion is still as strong as ever, if not more so. We have big dreams about where this project may lead, but our immediate goals are to continue to release one episode per week and to produce a good quality sound for you, the listener. As much as we love being close to one another, we would love to have our own microphones and a sound mixer. 

Some of our long term goals include. Providing support through meet ups, classes, and support type programs. As awesome as an online community is, we know that giving mothers a chance to make real life connections is far more beneficial. 

Where Do You Come In?

You are the key, we need your help! If we are going to take this podcast and community to the next level, we need sponsors. To appeal to sponsors our episodes need to have better sound quality and for that to happen we need proper gear. As of right now we are recording in our basement, huddling around one microphone and recording off of a Mac from 2009. It`s all well and good, but if we want to reach our goals, we will need new equipment. 

So far, we`ve recorded 14 episodes and edited them on our own. The three of us have a lot of skills, but sound engineering is not one of them. The average cost to have one episode edited is upwards of $100! Ouch!

Risks and challenges

Sound quality, especially with interviews, is a big challenge for us. We need quality equipment and software to edit our episodes.
We want our community to grow so more mothers can benefit from it. We need to get the word out there with advertising.
We love hosting events like play date in the park and mom's nights out, but they cost money to set up.
