A space for black mamas raising beautiful black children.
I am Meagan, founder of Black Supermamas. I created this space one year after giving birth to my son. My transition to motherhood happened after the heartbreaking murder of George Floyd and in the middle of an unprecedented pandemic. It was also during the time a light was being shined on the maternal health crisis.
As a black woman and black mama, it was an emotional, lonely, and exhausting time. I was learning to care for a newborn in a different state than our village, breastfeeding around the clock, and on the emotional rollercoaster of postpartum.
I searched for a transparent space to talk about the reality of motherhood. A space that reflected me as a black woman and mama. One that was safe, authentic, and supportive.
During the time that I felt like I was the only one awake in the world, feeding my almost 1-year-old. God was opening a door that was going to bigger that I could've imagine.

My goal for Black Supermamas is to support black mamas so we feel seen and heard. To advocate for our emotional, mental and physical health. To talk honest about our motherhood and validate our experiences.
