LMM has afforded me the opportunity to meet some amazing black women. We have shared different experiences which have helped me in different situations concerning my mental health, wellbeing and coping with my kids. I particularly love that I have made wonderful friends on the platform.

Being a part of the melanin mama's group has given me the opportunity to connect with other mums which has improved my social life. The group has become my first contact in regards to issues concerning my child as there is always useful information shared from other experienced mothers. It has also given me a sense of belonging as I feel welcome and free to share my thoughts without being judged or discriminated against.

A family! That is what the melanin mamas feels like to me. Being a mummy is the hardest job in the world, yet having the support from other beautiful mamas has made a world of difference. I have made friends for life and so grateful I found this group."

Melanin mamas what can I say? Honestly I wish this group existed when I had my first child. The group is supportive, friendly and also provides very useful information not just for my children but also for myself. If you have any questions or are not sure about something, be sure you can find the answer from the group or be signposted to the right place. I have never felt so comfortable and like I belong as much as I do in this group. The mums and topics discussed are relatable. At the end of the day we are just mums trying to be the best for our children. I have received support and tips for myself as well as for my children with regards to education, fitness, healthy eating, mental health, physical health, morale support, confidence and hair tips. I could go on..
The ladies in the group all have something to offer which makes learning enjoyable and easy as they are willing to share their knowledge and experience.
I have met some amazing mums who I consider sisters and have built up a network of supremums all thanks to the founder Jennifer. She is friendly, funny, supportive and simply amazing. She signposts you if you need guidance on various topics and has been nothing but helpful on all levels, for which I am grateful.
