International Women’s Day: Latham Thomas


What’s your greatest accomplishment?

I’ve been able to support hundreds of women deliver their babies. I have watched women cross the threshold into motherhood and have held their hand along the way. With all that I have done, I am most proud of having my son and raising him to be a compassionate, kind, human being. My son was the inspiration for me to found my company, Mama Glow.

Who/what inspires you?

I am inspired by the next generation of young female leadership as well as our elders. I believe that intergenerational support is so key to our growth as a community. That is why I opened a new Women’s Space in BK, so that we could serve women from menarche to menopause. When we come together as women we can do anything.

Why are you proud to be a woman today?

Woman is the beginning and within her lies a universe. We are united and standing together in our power to make waves of change. We are leading with vulnerability and grace and the choices we make are transforming the consciousness of our nation and our world.

What advice do you have for a future generation of female leaders and trailblazers?

There is only one YOU. You have your own unique brand of magic that the world is waiting for. So it’s your job to explore the fullest version of yourself. Nurture the relationships with women you meet along the way. Cultivate a sister circle of support with people you trust who help you stay accountable to your dreams.

What advice do you have for your younger self?

Find the optimal settings for your success. We know that plants need water, clean air, and sunlight to thrive and that the conditions have to be just so for the process to unfold smoothly. The same goes for us. We come encoded with a sacred mandate to live out our most powerful life—to live in the glow—and the right conditions can support our mandate, but we need to learn what they are and create a life that allows us to thrive, not just live.
