WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
"UP-STAND's event promotion and accommodations brought families to our show that I doubt would have otherwise come. It's not that new mothers cannot get out at all, it's that when they do, they are faced with challenges such as public breastfeeding, spaces that are too loud or too quiet, and a lack of clarity about where they fit in. UP-STAND made it clear to families that they were welcome, but also clarified HOW they were welcome. When families feel confident their needs can be met, they're more likely to come! We sold out all three family-friendly shows!" - Kathleen Boyle, Educator and Playwright, The Postpartum Project
"I think it [the UP-STAND accommodations provided] really supported our Mamas, and brought awareness to all, which seems to be nearly equally important." – Jenny Gillett, creator of the ethnodrama TOKOPHOBIA
