Alexis Barad-Cutler founded Not Safe For Mom Group (nsfmg) after a well-known parenting website took down an essay she had written for them because it was "too controversial." She wanted to create a stigma-free platform and community where women could express the thoughts, feelings, and questions they don't talk about everywhere else. 

These days, (nsfmg) boasts a 7000+ on and offline community that flies in the face of the sanitized version of motherhood typically seen on social media. (nsfmg) members engage in honest, deep diving conversations about everything from post-baby sex, to rage, to infertility, to gender disappointment, to post-partum depression and anxiety. The result is a community of support (and window into contemporary motherhood) you won't find anywhere else. 

Alexis is a group facilitator, writer, and published author; known in the digital motherhood and parenting space for her often raw and honest writing style. Her work has been featured in sites such as Mindr, Beyond Mom, Romper, Fatherly, Hey Mama, and Motherly — among other places that cater to the parenting set.

You can follow her life in Brooklyn as a mama to two lovely brothers at @alexisbaradcutler. More about her professional work (and children’s books) can be found here.
