The Stressed Out Mom Phenomenon
When my kids were little, I was so completely overwhelmed and isolated. I didn’t know where to go get useful help. The support systems available seemed to be geared towards children, but nothing reflected what I was dealing with internally. It wasn’t just about parenting, it was the combination of the stress of everything put together – taking care of 3 small children, housework, isolation, finances, relationships, lack of exercise, lack of self-care, lack of time in the day to just BREATHE! I didn’t know who I was and I felt guilty and inadequate.
It took a LONG time to go from that state of feeling completely depleted, to learning what I really needed to replenish myself and be present for my children and enjoy life. I had to work really hard to create the harmony, fulfillment and love that I wanted.
I thought I was the only one because most moms seemed like they had everything together, but after working with and meeting hundreds of moms, I know there are a lot who need more support than they are getting. Practical as well as emotional support. Being a doula and supporting moms through pregnancy and birth, it has been only natural that after completing my Life Coach training, I would like to support moms through the challenges that follow.
For many years I have been dreaming of creating a unique support system for stressed out moms so that they can begin to relax, appreciate themselves, their families and the deliciousness of life again. It is possible and I have the tools and strategies to help.
Mommy SOS – Support and Strategies to help Stressed Out Moms go from Chaos to Calm
Finally, I am starting phone support and workshops for stressed out moms so they can go from Chaos to Calm. It’s called Mommy SOS! The workshops are local (Vancouver, Surrey, Langley, White Rock, BC). But the phone support is for anywhere in the world.
So far the response has been overwhelming. Lots of Moms are responding saying, “Thank you for doing this! It is exactly what I need!” If you are reading this now and are feeling overwhelmed, I want you to take a deep breath. Take a few deep breaths and know that you are doing a great job.
Here’s what else you can do :
