ABOUT

Yo! Big Mama helps women discover their inner roller derby queen who is daring and determined, and isn’t afraid to get back up and adjust her crown after getting knocked on her ass a few times.

Instead of showering sweet sentiments and syrupy empty advice {wrapped in Pinterest perfect burlap bows - gag!} we offer a "sugar free" alternative appreciated by women who are a bit more SALTY.

Our in-person and online events bring women together and give them the opportunity to WHIP each other into shape. We empower each other to become unstoppable in pursuit of our dreams.

Big Mama was born-n-raised in Philly where the truth is never "WOODERED" down so pull on your Big Girl Panties, then check out our hilariously funny line of greeting cards which originated with a handful of salty Yo!BigMama cards and now includes the Yo!Lil'Mama and Yo!BabyMama series.
