In the months that followed my child's birth, I joined a handful of mom groups. Regardless of their size or location, what struck me most was our commonalities in pregnancy and parenthood across all boundaries. And there, time and time again, I listened to horror stories from women; they described being shoved onto crowded trains, health complications from standing too long or carrying something too heavy, and fainting from motion sickness.

I often question whether I should offer someone my seat or to carry their bags, or if I will offend them. So I thought, what if people clearly knew who was pregnant, or who would be willing to extend them common courtesies? I have witnessed such great generosity of spirit between strangers when someone has a visible need. And so, the UP-STAND movement was born. We aim to make public spaces & transportation safer for pregnant women by connecting them with their supporters, and my hope is that you'll join us.
