Report Summary

In the US, there are nearly 5 million Black mothers with children under the age of 18, making up about 14% of all U.S. moms. Brands who understand the needs of this demographic can act effectively to engage them, and this report aims to provide that understanding.

Below, we’ve summarized the key topics covered and provided hand-selected findings from the full document.

Key Topics Covered

  • Trends in Black maternal health and Black family dynamics.
  • Comparison of needs of Black moms based on marital/relationship status and comparison to general population of moms.
  • Childcare solutions and implications of family care vs paid childcare services.
  • Attitudes toward self-care and support around the home.
  • Marketing communication and opportunities to target Black mothers.

Marketing to Black Moms: Demographic Insights

Here we’ve provided three key insights from consumer research to enable an actionable understanding of this important demographic.

  • Black moms want to provide. Compared to the general population of moms, Black moms over index for a desire to provide financially for their family, and feel successful when doing so. This applies more to unmarried Black moms, who are focused on setting a good example for their children.
  • Childcare needs vary by generation. Younger Black moms are in need of more affordable childcare options when compared to older moms with older children. Additionally, moms of teens and tweens look to these older children to help care for the younger children.
  • Education is a potential support area. While moms in general look for help with household tasks, Black moms put less emphasis on this and more on their kids’ learning. This report finds more Black moms want help with their kids’ schoolwork and learning, and in looking to family/friends for efficient childcare they may have concerns about their children’s development.

How Can Brands Assist Black Moms?

Brands can assist Black moms by acknowledging the whole range of motherhood and focusing on the various stages and challenges that come with it. Recognizing Black moms as individuals, not just mothers, can help elevate their role as mothers and in life. A good start might be through offering support in areas such as mental load management, skill improvement, financial literacy, and self-care.
