007: The Power of Community with Alex Winkelman of Hello My Tribe

Connecting with other moms during your journey through pregnancy and on into motherhood can be essential to your overall health and sense of well-being. In this episode, we’re joining Alex Winkelman, founder of Hello My Tribe. Because of her own experiences as a new mom, Alex understands the need for community and connection. Her own deep need for a support system is one of the reasons she created Hello My Tribe, online and in-person communities offering honest, inspiring, and informative content for moms.

Through her own personal journey into motherhood that included an identity crisis, postpartum struggles, and an auto-immune disease diagnosis, Alex’s eyes were opened to maternal health issues facing women today in the US. Inspired to create change, Hello My Tribe is the answer to Alex’s two biggest beliefs about motherhood: that it’s a team sport and that self-care is required.
