Motherhood Unmasked

Nov 9, 2021

THANK YOU!!! 50 episodes of a solo podcast started during a world crisis is no small feat. I thank the Lord and I thank you for listening, subscribing and sharing this podcast with your mom friends.

You are living proof that friends don’t let mom friends mom alone! Today’s episode is the season 5 closer so that means I’ll be taking my customary extended break. Thanks again and enjoy today’s episode...

For some moms, motherhood feels like a constant treading water, leaving you with a lot of tired and no self-esteem.

If you're thinking of throwing in the towel, cutting your losses and pretending this motherhood thing never happened—you're probably suffering silence to avoid judgement.

But you're not the only one. Put your earbuds in and let's talk about it.



MOTHERHOOD UNMASKED is for moms, like you, struggling to survive your own childhood trauma in addition to the typical demands of motherhood, but hiding your struggle behind a mask.

If you’re raising children while carrying unresolved childhood wounds from traumatic experiences, including abuse, abandonment, and neglect and you struggle with expressing compassion, showing up with confidence, and connecting with your child, this podcast will inspire your own healing journey and empower you to break the negative cycles threatening your family.

Change starts with you believing that when it comes to you being the mother of your children; you are the woman for the job. And I love empowering you to do it.


Hi, I’m Vanessa. A pediatrician, stay at home mom of three, and multi-trauma overcomer, hosting real talk, including the childhood trauma keeping you from confidently showing up as the mom your children need. Because I'm over you suffocating under “the everything’s fine” mask.
