It’s an exhibition.

It’s a series of public programs.

It’s a design curriculum.

We’re partnering with Penn Design to bring conversations about the arc of human reproduction to design studios and design history classrooms. Get in touch if you’d like us to join yours

It’s a Storybanking project
The partnership between Designing Motherhood and Maternity Care Coalition is strengthened by sharing and listening to each other's stories. The DM x MCC Storybanking project is an equity centered and community design approach to advocate for a future where caregivers can birth with dignity, parent with autonomy, and raise babies who are healthy, growing, and thriving.

It’s an Instagram account.

This is where our research started and where we share snippets of wisdom as we find them

Most of all, it’s a collaboration. Designing Motherhood has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. Learn more about our amazing funders, thought leaders Maternity Care Coalition, and our other partners
