About Us

Motherhood shouldn’t feel lonely or be depleting, and it shouldn’t be filled with self-doubt. With simple tools and resources, women can build inner and outer strength to tackle all that motherhood throws their way. I started Hello My Tribe because I needed more of everything as a new mom -- more support, more community, more understanding, more information, and more opportunity. During my first year of motherhood, I felt isolated, lonely, anxious, depressed, frustrated, angry, and misunderstood, and I went through an identity crisis. Sometimes I still feel all of this, even four years postpartum. Through these experiences, I shared my story in 2016, came to learn I wasn’t alone, and found many solutions. I am now on a mission with Hello My Tribe to support women in all aspects of motherhood. Through content, campaigns, events, and both digital and in-person communities, we bring our two big beliefs to life. First, that motherhood is a team sport and second, that guilt-free self-care is a necessity. I’m so thankful to be on this journey with you. xoxo, Alex

Replay: Social media + bullying and living out your own dreams + mothering tweens

Andra Liemandt is a visionary and brings her energy to all her passions, particularly The Kindness Campaign. When her friend's 12-year-old daughter, a bullying victim, committed suicide, Liemandt discovered a shocking dearth of educational resources. Motivated to make a difference, she founded The Kindness Campaign, which now proactively addresses bullying via powerful curriculum, meaningful activations and events at schools and organizations, teaching the foundational message "I am enough." This message is also the focus of her band, The Mrs, an all-female pop-rock band that has been featured on Good Morning America, BuzzFeed, grammy.com, The Queen Latifah Show, and in Billboard and People magazine. Liemandt's knack for empowering audiences toward inner and outer kindness has positioned her as a coveted keynote speaker, a philanthropist and an influencer.

43. Learn: The history of motherhood and the challenges of working motherhood today

Alex here! When I heard Marti Bledsoe Post on the stage at Mother: The Summit talking about the history of motherhood, I immediately knew we needed to bring this conversation to our community. This episode is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I found myself often speechless as Marti discusses the "intensive parenting" era we are experiencing today, the fact that the U.S. is ranked 41st out of 41 developed countries in terms of family-friendly policies by UNICEF, and how the gender gap begins at home. In Marti's book Retrofit, she shares that The New York Times recently reported that girls do more chores than boys at home, girls make less allowance than boys, and girls are paid less for chores than boys. When learning this, are you surprised that research has found that women spend less time relaxing than men and that 65% of child care responsibilities are shouldered by working mothers compared to 35% by working fathers? We discuss solutions on how to make working motherhood work...
