Oh, hi! I'm Aminah.
I'm the founder of Unapparenthood. I studied a few things here and there, dabbled in kitchens and tech, realizing fairly quickly that I was burnt out from creating for other people.
I had a grand idea of creating content for the modern parent while I was pregnant last year, but lost that angel baby at 12 weeks. I was lost and broken after that missed miscarriage. I felt like I had no control over my body or the decisions that were being made for me. After my initial heartache (heartache I still have till this day), I felt like I needed to create this space for the real truth about pregnancy, again for the modern parent. I wanted to empower parents (and parents-to-be) to be as informed as possible from pregnancy to parenthood.
So here I am, still with this grand idea, pregnant with my rainbow baby, while really going after building this modern parenting brand.
We envision a community where parents are empowered when making decisions for their pregnancy and throughout parenthood.
Unapparenthood is your cool, relatable, and hilarious parent-friend that gives you actual advice you need.
Advice like "do we actually need to get wipe warmers?" or "can I peppermint oil for this killer pregnancy migraines even though I'm pregnant?". You know how our parents are always giving seriously outdated and unneeded advice? Yeah, we're not like that. We're the cool parent-friend.
We're not going to sugarcoat the hard stuff or sweat the small stuff. We're millennial, entrepreneurial, and listen to "Signed XOXO" on spotify while we read step-by-step instructions on how to swaddle a baby. We're that friend.
Nearly 75% of women identifying millennials look to friends to recommend products over "experts".
We want to talk about the things that matter the most during pregnancy and parenthood, with creative and engaging content that reflects our values rooted in inclusivity and equality.
We're building Unapparenthood to be the leading digital media brand for modern parents. Our mission is to inspire parents to nurture their babies into becoming better adults - adults who will act with empathy, respect, and love.
Focusing on original content, Unapparenthood will offer an inclusive perpsective on parenting advice. When things aren't always so clear to us parents, you turn to Unapparenthood.
