One Tribe is an integrative, expert-led community that provides best-in-class education, services, and resources to support women on their journey to motherhood and beyond.

The first One Tribe center opened in Miami in 2023 with an accessible-anywhere digital hub featuring expert-led programming: physical therapy and pelvic floor, acupuncture, lactation, yoga, mental health, nutrition, parenting coaching, sleep, and new parent school. In addition, One Tribe offers access to a community that understands the reality of pregnancy—the joy, pain, fear, and beauty that go along with this incredible, life-changing journey.

A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER

Emilie Fritz Veloso was inspired to create One Tribe after experiencing two difficult pregnancies where she struggled to find appropriate, convenient, and accessible resources. The daunting experience of seeking the best support, combined with the overwhelming amount of information thrown at expecting mothers, drove her to establish a centralized and vetted destination—so that other women won’t have to experience the same difficulties she did.
