Moms Who Inspire: Yael Cohen

Ever Searched on YouTube for water birth videos?

Reading Time: 7 minutes

I’ll never forget the first time I came across Yael Cohen.

It was a rainy day in New York City and my three-month old daughter had been screaming for the better part an hour. I was at my wits end when she finally fell asleep on top of me. Since I couldn’t move much I hopped on Facebook to kill some time. While scrolling, I stumbled across one of Yael’s blog posts on Motherlucker entitled, Things No One Tells You: It’s Lonely at First. The post talks about how new motherhood is lonelier than Yael originally thought it would be. As I read it, her words “Redefining my sense of self was what took the longest” seeped deep into my heart.

Her words felt like my internal dialogue, and for the first time as a mother, I felt like what I was feeling was completely normal. Her blog has been a place where I go to feel more connected ever since.

Yael is much more than just the mastermind behind Motherlucker. She’s also the CEO of Fuck Cancer, a nonprofit she founded that helps bring awareness to early cancer detection that Yael founded after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. And when Yael’s not running her businesses, she’s spending time with her family, husband Scooter Braun, son Jagger and a little one on the way.

When I interviewed Yael I was immensely filled with love as she spoke about her motherhood experience. One thing that really hit home for me was when she talked about the importance of having mom friends and how much love and support they’ve brought to her life. You can read more about that in her answer to question four.

However, If there’s one thing I want to get across about Yael before I let her take the reigns below, it’s this; She is the real deal. She’s not scared to speak her truth, be vulnerable and push for what she believes in, and that’s why I’m so honored to share her thoughts with you below.
