We all know it. Motherhood is not for the faint of heart.
But I bet you feel faint—make that exhausted—from the demands to nurture your children, raise them to be responsible citizens, keep a clean home, work that job, be present, make time for you, make time for the family and time for hubby, all while pretending you’re confidently doing any of it!
Why wrestle with mom guilt and secret overwhelm all while trying to prove you have it all together?
Motherhood isn’t about carefully curated images on a social media feed or popularity with your kids. It’s a beautiful ride that’s also messy and full of opportunity to use your influence to change the trajectory of your family.
But if you can’t get real about the childhood trauma keeping you from confidently showing up as the mom your children need, then you’ll suffocate under “the everything’s fine” mask.
Hi, I’m Vanessa. And as a pediatrician, stay at home mom of three, and multi-trauma overcomer, I say—nope, not on my watch!
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.
Because no matter your childhood traumatic experiences, the hand that rocks the cradle impacts generations.
And you have the right to decide what kind of impact.
You have a legacy to change. And it starts with you believing that when it comes to you being the mother of your children; you are the woman for the job.
So, tap in and join me for Motherhood Unmasked.
