Blind Motherhood’s Mission

Blind Motherhood is more than just a blog; it’s an online resource for individuals and their families who have been impacted by vision loss.

Our mission is to demonstrate members of the blind & visually impaired community can parent safely, independently and effectively. The stories we share seek to diminish any negative perceptions of parenting without sight; educating and enlightening both the sighted and the blind.

Blind Motherhood will help prospective blind parents learn the in’s and out’s for all things baby. From infertility and pregnancy, to finding useful baby products for navigating life with a newborn; this community will support you.

Blind Motherhood explores childhood’s developmental milestones, celebrating the laughter and chaos in each fantastic moment. We’ll inspire each other to get through our parenting difficulties from toddler tantrums to the stomach flu.

Blind Motherhood is where we can talk about relationships; those we have with our human partners and the ones we have with our guide dogs.

Finally, Blind Motherhood is also a place where sighted parents raising blind and visually impaired children can find support. We challenge you to look towards the adults in our online community and find comfort in knowing you too can one day become grandparents. Your blind or visually impaired child can grow up to become an educated, integral part of their community. It’s possible for them to find love, get married, and raise a family. The parents who share their stories here are living proof that it can be done!

I hope you will join me on this journey. Let’s swap stories.  Share resources.  Pass along that recipe. Let’s do it all by “Never losing sight of life, love and laughter.”
