the better part


We're here to help you put the peace back in parenting

You have all the tools & instincts within you to be the best mama to your baby -- we're just here to help you find them.



Our Story

The Better Part Motherhood Collective was born out of a frustration at the way society fails us as mothers and a desire to help change that. Every "expert" I worked with in my early days as a mother left me feeling like a failure, not like the true expert on my child. That is, until I stumbled across this approach to baby sleep and parenting and discovered that my instincts were the ones to listen to. I've watched so many women walk this journey, and as I learned more about the way Jesus made our babies and our brains, a passion to share that knowledge and freedom was born.

Our Promise

You're trusting us to advise you on the most important thing you'll ever do: raise the little humans entrusted to your care. We don't take that privilege lightly, so we want you to know that this is a resource you can trust. so dear mama, here's what we promise to be:








Relationship Centric


Unapologetically Raw

We understand what it’s like to be in the trenches of motherhood, juggling societal expectations with the reality of the everyday struggles. We’re here to serve you and walk with you because we’ve been through it (and are still on the journey). 

We strive to give you the tools and education you need to make the right choices for your family. We’re not here to tell you what to do or what the “perfect” approach is – we’re here to support and encourage you as you seek to discover the approach that works for you and your child.

We bring a funny and energetic vibe to the table, recognizing the humor so often found in motherhood and embracing it. We accept our quirkiness and seek to make others comfortable to be exactly who God made them to be. We know that sometimes in motherhood, you just have to laugh.

We believe that God made us to be in relationship, so we always seek to put people and connection first. We want you to have the best possible connection with your child and prioritize presence over perfection.

We commit to not shying away from the tough topics. We believe that the journey to becoming a responsive and conscious parent is a journey through our own wounds and can be very triggering at times. Some of what we ask you to consider might be tough to swallow, but our mission is to help you walk freely into healing and motherhood, so we won’t be afraid to bring up hard topics. 

-Dr Deborah MacNamara

"Children are not meant
work for love.
rest in someone's care
They are meant to
so that they can play and grow.
This is why relationships matter."

let's work together
