Crunchy Mamas Worldwide was founded in 2012 when Emmie Brown discovered a need in her community for local support to moms who were looking for different ways to do things. She began doing research and connecting with like-minded moms at local events, and formed the first chapter in Miami, FL.
As the group grew, friends who lived further north in another county wanted a similar group, so one was created there. This began the vision and the dream to bring Crunchy Mamas "Worldwide" into reality.
Welcome, and thanks for being with us!
Crunchy Mamas Worldwide is not your average community of mothers. We recognize that each family situation is unique, and what works for some may not work for all. We are founded on respect for one another, and we believe in making our resources and support available to all who want to want to participate.
Each local chapter is designed to support women in a local community who are moms or moms-to-be. We recognize that as a mother, we receive information from hundreds of voices every day, telling us what is good and what is not good, what we are doing right, and what we are doing wrong. By providing insight, peer support, and open dialogue, we hope to help mothers sift through the information to find what works best for their family.
Since each chapter is in a specific local area, moms can meet up together for classes, support groups, fun events, and more! Local chapters can help families find medical practitioners, resources, and other area organizations or businesses.
Online, mothers can ask questions, link articles, offer insight, and share ideas with one another. On occasion, authors, doctors, or other field experts may be on hand to provide information and support.
We require members to be respectful and kind at all times when interacting with one another. We do not tolerate shaming, bashing, or breeches in group confidentiality. We know motherhood is hard enough - and our groups are intended to provide mothers with a safe space to connect to one another and seek help and advice.
For more information on the way we do things, check out our Group Guidelines page.
We pride ourselves on being a safe and encouraging place where moms can seek professional and peer advice. Read our code of conduct and local group guidelines here.
Crunchy mamas come from all walks of life and live in every corner of the globe. Find out what we think "crunchy" means!
