Cherished Mom’s Box program began with an inspired objective: Provide new mothers with self-care incentives for a premium perinatal mental health education. We believe the mothers carrying the future of the world deserve an all-encompassing education about their life changing experience. Our evidence-based educational materials feature expert information from professional psychologists and psychiatrists. The Box program rewarded participants with coloring books, motivational cards, lotions and other self care items tailored to the experiences of the expecting. In addition, mothers were encouraged to include their families and friends as well, generating eye-opening communal awareness and understanding. This incentive program has been in existence since our establishment in 2018. Despite its success, we began to wonder: “Where do we go from here? How can we improve?”
“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers — strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”
-Barbara Katz Rothman
Our core values and unwavering vision for a better future led us to the rebirth of our Box program. Cherished Mom was born with a desire to educate moms and families around maternal mental health conditions. Today, we are thrilled to redesign this program to better meet the needs of the families we serve as well as be an organization willing and excited to partner with local businesses. It is with great excitement we unveil the newly restructured incentive program to enhance the gifts moms receive and lift up our local and national partners.
Our trained leaders understand maternal mental health needs can differ from mother to mother. If we’re being honest, a new mom’s cravings, wishes, and wants can dramatically shift depending on the day of the week. Our new partnerships offer accessible, obtainable, and practical incentives ranging from access to state-of-the-art Virtual Reality systems to the sweet treat you know you deserve after a hard day.
