Our contributors say
"The experience with Motherhood.Design was crucial for my full time job. It taught me how to work in a team and how to learn by doing. The team was amazing: welcoming, supportive and inspiring."
Ponja Hoxha Ocumarez
UX-Designer
"Most valuable for me was to be able to talk about postpartum depression and how we're trying to help moms with a real product on a real team. It helped me a lot at my current job where their original focus was mental and behavioral health."
Cassandra Derby
UX/UI Designer

"With Motherhood.Design I learned about the UX design thinking process, google sprint framework and UX research methods. I realized how important it is to hear out your users and receive user feedback on every stage of product development."
