Hi, I'm Markella
here to support you in your motherhood journey
Do you find that despite all the seminars, research, and reading you've done preparing for motherhood, you still crave:
reassurance that you're not "breaking" your child?
the ability to stay present in the moment?
balance between competing loves and interests?
a sense of community with moms who just get you?
confidence that you are the best mom for your child(ren)?
Well, you're not alone.
While we are taught all things pregnancy and postpartum on how to ensure our child's healthy development, we are hardly instructed on how to effectively respond to the profound change that motherhood inevitably brings.
This, in turn, leaves us feeling disillusioned.
"Why had no one told me this before?"
"Do other mothers not feel this way?"
And then we form a very self-limiting belief:
"I wasn't cut out for this. I am an awful mother."
The impact this has on the way we show up as mothers is tremendous.
And we feel it; this lingering fear that we aren't enough. For them.
That we are falling short.
But this isn't the way it has to be!
You do not need shame and guilt as your drive to be a good mom.
I am here to support you and your vision in becoming the mother you've envisioned, breaking free from the feeling that you are not enough.
You CAN attain reassurance that you're doing great.
You CAN feel confident in the way you show up as a parent.
& you CAN do this without losing yourself to motherhood.
Are you ready to become a mother who is confident, self-aware and emotionally equipped to be the most nurturing, loving mother this baby could ever have?
My 15+ years of experience working with parents and children in the counseling as well as the academic setting have shown me one clear pattern:
A mother that has received sufficient emotional support steps into her caregiver role able to mother without the unnecessary burden that heavy, unresolved emotions cause, becoming a source of power and love for her children.
This inspired me to shift my full focus on empowering the [often invisible] mother so that she, in turn, can be the beacon of light to her child(ren).
