You could say Founder, Heather Anderson, has a sort of 'thing' for community. Circa the 80s, it was secret clubhouse meetings and under-the-porch band practices. In High School, it was 4H campouts and rallying with the Oakland Strokes crew for pre-dawn rowing practice. In College, it was throwing parties and hosting open mikes for the 'Dead Poet Society'.
Pre-kiddos, she was building community in the Bay Area independent music scene - connecting songwriters, musicians and related creatives to each other. So naturally, when she found herself going from zero to five kiddos in under five years (two are 'bonus-kiddos' if you're pondering the science behind it all!), she started building mom-community pronto. And like all great parties, The Mamahood took on a life of its own and became this here thriving hub.
