kindred mamas

Born out of a personal need for intentional community along with a realization that she was not alone in the isolating aspects of motherhood, Nichole planted the seeds in 2018 to lead a monthly gathering for ladies living in Chicago’s north side neighborhoods.

Kindred Mamas is a supportive sisterhood that exists to honor the growth that mothers experience alongside their developing children. We gather to create sacred space to express the frustrations and elations that occur along this journey. We encourage a consistent devotion to ourselves to ensure healthy personal & spiritual growth, that, therefore, reaches to our families. Through this self-acknowledgement, self-exploration, and self-care we hope to ensure a more positive path for our community.

Sign up for the next gathering below!

You’re invited to Nichole’s home in Rogers Park every third Saturday from March – August for a morning of supportive self-care. 

Each gathering will leave you feeling nurtured and restored through kinship, meditation, a group tarot/oracle card reading & discussion, and art making. Come and co-create sacred space with the intention to recenter and recharge.

To make this experience accessible to all, and to cover costs for materials, refreshments, and time, the participation fee is on an equitable sliding scale.

$7 – community supported (three spots available)

$20 – community supporter 

$25 – pay it forward community supporter 

Due to her work as a postpartum doula who is frequently in close contact with newborns, and out of respect for anyone immunocompromised, Nichole may require that participants wear masks, depending on how Cook County Covid case numbers are during that particular month. 

Info on May Mother’s Circle Gathering

In honor of Mother’s Day I am encouraging moms to bring a donation of diapers (specifically size 5 & 6) or formula (if you can find any!) to Saturday’s meeting, which I will later take to the Rogers Park Free Store, a mutual aid hub that provides free groceries, toiletries and more to neighbors in need.

If you are able to donate diapers or formula I only ask for the community supported tier ($7) for admission to help cover the cost of supplies. To register for this month’s circle please email me nicholeharrodcares at gmail dot com or send $7 via venmo to @nichole-harrod. Please include your email address in the “What’s it for?” line.
