In Support of New Moms

In a cluttered category with parity messaging Abbott’s brand, Similac, wanted to reconnect with parents in a unique and more meaningful way. Learning showed a new mom faces judgment of her choices and decisions, causing her insecurity. To demonstrate an understanding of this judgment and to show unconditional support for moms, Similac created “The Sisterhood of Motherhood.” This integrated, holistic campaign took a stance against parental judgment and encouraged parents to work toward a mutual goal of raising healthy, happy babies.
