Quilting has long been a labor of love stitched by dedicated seamstresses in an effort to cover their family members with warmth and beauty. The quilt motif used in the Every Mother, Inc. logo is a reminder that each individual piece is important, but when sewn together, they form a beautiful pattern. In the same way, when each member of the circle of care for new families provides accurate and consistent information and support, new families can feel the warmth of support that helps them reach their parenting goals.
