Both are simultaneously true. To experience the gifts of motherhood more fully means talking about what is hard for you. This requires vulnerability.
And there are a million reasons why motherhood is hard--overwhelming cultural expectations, massive responsibility, fluctuating hormones, lack of support, conflicting advice, exhaustion, renegotiating your relationship, unresolved issues from childhood and the list goes on...
So many mothers suffer in silence trying to hold it all together. I used to be one of them. It was lonely and exhausting.
Motherhood broke me wide open and set me on a path of
Softening means tending to yourself with as much love and care as you tend to your child(ren).
If your mothering doesn’t include you, it is insufficient.
Mothering the Mother is a community of support, nourishment, knowledge and wisdom sharing for the mother craving truth, connection and sustainable self-care.
Is this You?
You understand the incredible power and responsibility you have as a mother.
Your mind feels like it can never fully shut down so you can get the deep rest you need.
You second guess every decision and compare yourself to everyone else’s mothering.
You’ve begun to see burnout as a normal part of motherhood.
You have a hard time setting and keeping boundaries.
You tell everyone you’re “fine” when you feel more anxious, overwhelmed, irritable and alone since becoming a mother.
You are keeping score in your house tracking who does what and feeling resentment because you always seem to do more.
You see pleasure and rest as indulgences instead of vital self-care.
You don’t have to go it alone. There is another way.

This is my wish for you and all mothers because I get it, I really do.
A mother that thrives leads a family that thrives.
When I gave birth to my first daughter I gave birth to my unmothered self. I was prepared for everything except my own needs. I had no conscious blueprint for mothering. I read and I learned everything I could and it just added to my overwhelm. What I needed was support. What I needed was to know I was good enough. What I needed was compassion. What I needed was a space where I felt safe to share my struggles.
What I needed was this group. I’ve weaved together what I learned on my journey as a mother and as a clinician to create a program that will support you to create boundaries, rituals and routines that honor your worth.
