The purpose of is to provide a place where women can ask questions and find answers in a safe, non-judgmental space; a place where women can access yoga and meditation from their home when walking out the door is too much hard work; a place where they can interact with nutritionists, doulas, social workers, and plain old mamas who know. Throw in a little curated shopping experience with recommended items to promote healthy living and some pampering, and you have MamaSoul.

MamaSoul knows that women in all communities can be in need of this type of help, but unfortunately don't have the access or the means. That's why 50% of monthly membership fees go toward a charity promoting mental health and wellness in women (for example, during National Yoga Month, MamaSoul will be donating to The Yoga Alliance).
