Q&A with heymama. November 23 2015, 0 Comments

MB is finally getting back to mama profiles and what better way to start then with Amri Kibbler and Katya Libin, the two founders of heymama a curated community of creative mothers.

I personally heard of heymama when an editor friend mentioned I would love their gorgeous stream of pics on instagram . Being the creative savvy ladies that they are they first launched Hey Mama through this visual media outlet then came the heymama site which is equally inspiring. All I have to do is feel in a bit of a rut and read one of the inspiring posts of creative mamas navigating their families and creative lives.

Since one half of heymama lives in Brooklyn and this duo can often be found working in this creative nook of our neighborhood we wanted to share a bit about these two awesome ladies.

mb:  Back in the day (like, 2 years ago!) mothers connected through parents boards, email groups..many still do yet there is this world now of connecting only through social media channels. How do you feel social media, particularly instagram helps mothers connect? 
heymama: I think there is room for both, the boards are great for very local advice, what to do, and connecting to women in you neighborhood. Social media allows you to connect to women all over the world, to makes world so much smaller and more accessible. You an meet women you may want to collaborate with living on the other side of the planet.

 

mb: How can one be part of Hey Mama?
heymama: We are a member's only community so send us an email at hello@heymama.co or you can apply on our website.

 

mb: As partners and mothers do you find that this (working as partners) helps you both to maintain some kind of balance or sanity in your lives? 
heymama: So much! We support each other and try to really accommodate each other's schedules and allow for flexibility. I'm very pregnant and Katya has been supportive of my through all my doctor appointment and baby prep.

 

mb: Since one half of Hey Mama recently moved here to Williamsburg  how do you feel about the mom community here? 
heymama: We're still really new to the neighborhood, we just moved this summer, and would love to meet more moms in area. 

 

 

mb: Finally, last question! Any great Brooklyn mom businesses or a resource(s), cafes you have discovered?

heymama: There are so many talented moms in Brooklyn with businesses. Sour Ploom, Sweet William, Natti Natti, red rose & lavender , Ace & Jig, June & January....and so  many more!! I live across fromCampbell Cheese and practically live there. Everything is so fresh and delicious.
