We want you to be the best Mom you can be!
Get connected. Feel seen. Be heard.
Become a Nervous System Informed Mom
Too often mother’s feel like they are falling short based on their own or society's expectations of what it “should” look like to raise a child, cook a meal or tend to a home. It’s totally normal to feel overwhelmed, frustrated and alone in your emotions. You might even feel guilty and ashamed for feeling those 'negative' emotions. Many moms worry about how those emotions are impacting their baby or child. You are not a bad parent for feeling those unwelcomed emotions. You are not alone!

You already know this, but the big question is how; especially when you are overwhelmed by this new role.
You are also not alone if you struggle with feeling selfless one day and then selfish the next. It’s natural to feel totally connected and in love with your baby one moment and then the next, feel desperate for personal space and feel as though you are going to snap! While juggling the demands of motherhood might be a lot harder than you thought it would be, it doesn’t have to stay that way.
We have never met a mom who doesn't have this drive, no matter how much they are struggling.
To make this happen it helps to learn new skills and unlearn that which no longer serves you in this mission. The problem is that sometimes you lose control and feel like you just can’t “get it together”, which makes things feel hopeless and overwhelming.We believe that you shouldn’t have to do this on your own. We understand that it takes a village and that as a mother you need to be supported first, before you can help your child thrive. That’s why we offer the Mindful Motherhood Musing virtual circle - so that you can get the connection you want, while learning the parenting skills you need.
