Sobriety makes it better.
Connection makes it possible.

"Back when women were all in the hut together, raising their children side by side, they had the support needed to be the present parents those times required. Today, we are on our own. We stand in the kitchen screaming by ourselves and wonder why no one is listening."
— Emily Lynn Paulson, Founder

Hear From Our Members

"Sober Mom Squad has had such an incredible impact on my sober journey. Being able to surround myself with welcoming, non-judging, understanding moms, makes me feel less alone and gives me the courage to keep moving forward with my goal of living alcohol-free. It's not easy to quit alcohol when we live in such mommy-wine-culture, but Sober Mom Squad reminds me that it is not only possibly, it is beautiful and pretty badass." — Jess S.
"SMS has been such a vital part of my recovery. It's a wonderful community that reminds me that I'm not alone through other women's stories and is a place to share my own." — Noelle
"I got sober with the support of the IG sober community and when the pandemic hit, I found the Sober Mom Squad. SMS helped me get through the pandemic and I will forever be grateful. Whether your babies are in diapers or heading off to college—we all have days we wonder how we are going to make it through. "Momming" is hard and so is sobriety, but by sharing our stories in this safe, trusting and supportive community, it's all a little easier." — Heather T.
"When I got pregnant, I was worried that belonging to a mom group meant I'd be forced. to navigate mommy wine culture. I'm so grateful this group exists. I feel supported as a mom to be and a sober woman!" — Anna C.

Do I have to speak or show my face in webinars, meetings, or group coaching sessions?

Never! Sharing is always optional, as is showing your face. You can also take part in the community, which is invaluable! 

What if I can't make the meetings or webinars live?

Due to privacy, we are not recording the weekly virtual meetings or coaching. However, all of the webinars will be recorded and posted for later viewing. The community and other resources will always be accessible.

What if I'm not a mom yet but want to be? Or what if my kids are already grown up?

Mothers come in many forms. Our community is open to all women and nonbinary individuals who identify with women's communities. We have grandmothers, those who don't yet have children, and everything in between. For those planning a family, we would love to have you. Establishing yourself as a sober mom before you become one is incredible!

What if I don't identify as sober or am just sober curious?

We would love to have you. We all started our journey somewhere! We are all like-minded in the sense that alcohol and substances are not required accessories to motherhood. Our REWIND program would be a perfect start!

What if I've been trying to quit drinking for years, am not sure if I want to stop forever, am still drinking/using, or have a slip or relapse?

That's even more of the reason you need a community of moms who understand! Our REWIND program would be an excellent addition to your recovery toolkit.

Are these recovery meetings?

No, they are not AA or NA or SMART recovery or any other recovery program. Our meetups are for connection, female empowerment, and motherhood. We are a group of moms trudging through motherhood together, desiring an alcohol-free life through it all. We welcome people from all recovery modalities, practices, religions, colors, shapes, and sizes! We are here if you are a mom (or mom-to-be) navigating the sober or sober-curious lifestyle.

What about privacy?

Though only Sober Mom Squad members can access the Zoom information for the weekly meetings + community forum, we cannot guarantee your complete privacy or anonymity. If you are concerned, keep your video off and use a different name.

You are also welcome to use a nickname or only share your first or last initial when joining the community and setting up your profile.
