Undefining Motherhood was created by me, Katy Huie Harrison, PhD. (You can call me Katy.)
I earned a PhD in English Literature, where I wrote my doctoral dissertation on Victorian motherhood, and I’m endlessly fascinated by the societal (and often unfair) expectations of a “good” mother. As I progressed through life and experienced pregnancy loss and birth, I realized that the world needed a forum where we could learn from each other, shake off external (and internal) expectations, and create our own personal definitions of motherhood.

At Undefining Motherhood, you’re part of an open-minded community that celebrates the ups, downs, heartbreaks, and joys of being a human being and mother. I’m so glad you’re here.
