Motherhood is better together.
Community is our superpower
Have you heard of the “Seattle Freeze?” While it’s hard for us to remember that feeling now, sitting in a group of welcoming womxn at an Om Mama event, this is a real issue we face in Seattle. It can be so hard to ask that gal you see in yoga every week to coffee, to bridge that friend gap. That’s what Om Mama is here for: to help you connect with other mamas at our monthly meetups and then continue that relationship online and at future events.
We practice yoga.
We have deep and silly
We go on hikes.
We come together in community.
I'm Meredith Ruth
I’m Meredith Ruth, founder of Om Mama Co. and a milestone photographer in Seattle. The vision for Om Mama came about when my friend, a pre- and post-natal yoga instructor, suggested that her services would be a great fit for my “forever” clients. I immediately thought, Yes! I would love for my clients to have access to incredible service providers like Jessica, but wasn’t sure how to make that happen. And so, Om Mama Co. was born: a holistic, supportive community for new and expectant mamas and for the business owners who serve them.
I’ve seen clients, friends and family struggle with not only their physical bodies before and after pregnancy, but also with feelings of loneliness, depression and anxiety. I created Om Mama Co. so that moms would have a space where they could connect with each other, exercise, learn from industry leaders, and have FUN. Together.
I also wanted to create a venue for providers in these industries to connect and share their expertise with each other. Being a small business owner can sometimes feel hard and lonely—we need community, too. In the two years since its founding, Om Mama Co. has blossomed into a community where womxn and local business owners feel seen, empowered, and inspired.
Motherhood isn’t a one-size-fits-all journey or experience. Every day, I’m blown away by the courage of mothers and their capacity for love, giving, and growing. I’m inspired by how they use their energy to support themselves, their families, their communities, and their businesses. As my husband and I navigate our own journey to parenthood, I’ve come to lean on the Om Mama community in more ways than I ever imagined. The wealth of knowledge and compassion I find among our members has become a rock for me, expanding my own vision of motherhood and wellbeing.
Whether you’re a mama or a business owner, I’m so glad you’re here. I can’t wait to meet you!
