ABOUT FIRST WORD IS MA
A Collaborative Journal for Mothers
Typically, the first sound a baby utters is, "ma," or "mama." Perhaps to the baby it's merely an onomatopoeic sound and a funny exercise for the mouth. Nonetheless, it's fascinating that this sound became our name and in Sanskrit happens to be the sound of the Divine Feminine. Hence the name of this site, "First Word is Ma."
This place is intended for women who are new to this tribe called Motherhood. You'll find articles written about every facet of this incredibly complex journey we've embarked; from deep matters to helpful tips. There's also artwork, photography and poetry, and you're invited to contribute whatever expression you find fit for this collaboration.
