Mentoring Mothers


Connection and community for mothers who gather to nurture one another in transitioning to a more conscious experience of motherhood.

Mentoring Mothers fosters a woman’s emotional and psychological development to support her in  becoming the mother and woman she wishes to be.

“I just didn’t think this would be so hard!”

“Nobody prepares you for what it is like once the baby comes out.”

“Everything has changed. I just don’t feel like myself anymore.”

“The other moms are managing so much better than I am.”

“I wanted to be a mother and have a baby–why don’t I enjoy it?”

“I did not think I would feel so exhausted, stressed, worried, and lonely.”

“I am afraid I will repeat what I experienced as a child.”

“I don’t feel bonded to my baby—some days I don’t want to be around my baby.”

Mentoring Mothers address these concerns.
