About us

We exist to help moms flourish


Our History

Founded in 2019, we started as a space for moms to gather for exercises and prenatal classes. During COVID, we closed our building and now focus on home visits and prenatal classes at locations around Tirana.

Our Future

We hope to reach more mothers in Albania to ensure that each family feels educated and supported for birth and breastfeeding. 

We plan to grow our team and services to provide more opportunities for moms in Albania and abroad to find the information and care they need to thrive.

We want to see mothers thrive.
We are here to educate, empower, and support families during pregnancy and after birth in Albania and worldwide.
