The Who

Hey Hey! I'm Natalie, a young black wife and mother of 3. Being a mother has been the most challenging and rewarding experience of my life. Over the past 5 years, I have learned so much about myself through marriage life, raising children, trying to settle into a career, and everything in between. I am passionate about education, holistic living, writing, & family life. As a family, we enjoy creating memories with the simple things in life. We enjoy praising God together through old hymns, reading books, traveling, and working in our backyard garden.

Aside from owning & operating Melanated Motherhood, I am a full time blogger. I share my journey through motherhood, and life in general, to encourage other young mothers, especially those that look like me. 

If you're not already, I'd love to connect with you on my blog and/or Instagram.

The Why

Melanin is a type of pigment found in skin, hair & eyes that gives it color. Naturally, those with more melanin having darker skin tones. To be melanated is to be black.

"Melanated Motherhood is a lifestyle." 


I chose the name Melanated Motherhood to reflect who I am, a black mother, and whom I want to support, black mothers. In a time where racism, biases, stereotypes, and prejudices are still very present, I desire to break & defy those barriers.

It is my mission to support, encourage, and motivate other black mothers to feel confident in their natural-born skin. Black motherhood is a unique and beautiful experience that we should be celebrating.  

I created clothing, apparel, and other merchandise to uplift and honor 

melanated mothers.

Each month, we are committed to donating a portion of our profits to various organizations that specifically cater to black women.
