Welcome to Mama is an Academic. Our website is an online peer support community for mothers pursuing an academic career (or academics pursuing motherhood!). The blog is written by academic mothers to share experiences – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the juggling. And our resources section is a compilation of resources from around the world that we have found useful, inspiring or comforting.
We want to provide a positive resource for helping people to manage being academics and mothers, in the hope that this isn’t an unachievable thing in the longer term (of course we are all committed personally to this being totally achievable). We want to make academic motherhood visible and connected, so we can support each other.
