Join Us for a Digital Event on Pregnancy and Motherhood

4 min read

Join us on June 24th for Make Your Self: Motherhood Edition, a digital event. Watch live starting at 10AM PST on YouTube Premiere.

We know that when you’re thinking about starting a family, prioritizing your health feels more pressing than ever—and with that comes a lot of questions. (So many questions.) In fact, this mindset is kind of a big part of who we are as a company: When our founder and CEO was pregnant with her first kid, a frustrating search for a quality, transparently-sourced prenatal multivitamin ultimately gave way to the birth of Ritual.

All this is to say that when it comes to looking for answers as an expecting or new mom—from the basics of breastfeeding to what to actually put on your registry—we totally get it. And that’s why we’re thrilled to announce Make Your Self: Motherhood Edition, a virtual event for thinking, trying, and when it’s time.

Join us for a day’s worth of virtual Q&As featuring leading experts and brand mavens who’ve been through it all. We’ll be covering everything from prioritizing yourself after birth to talking about stress around labor and delivery. Whether you’re seriously considering motherhood, expecting your first, or getting ready for baby number 2 (or 3 or 4), we’re here to support you in every step of pregnancy. And the best part? You get access to all these amazing conversations from the comfort of your couch.

Catch the full day's videos on YouTube Premiere when they go live on June 24th, or watch whenever you have a spare minute. (We know how busy you are.) Plus, for every viewer who tunes in on June 24th, we’re donating $1 (up to $5000) to Black Mamas Matter Alliance, a black women-led, cross-sectoral alliance that is working to ensure that Black mamas have the rights, respect, and resources to thrive before, during, and after pregnancy. Together, we can make an impact and hope you join us by donating here.
