Every story of beautiful transformation includes overcoming tremendous challenges. The Mother’s Journey is no different. One of the primary challenges women encounter is they sign up for motherhood not expecting to have to face their innermost demons, surrender control, and alter their identity. The illusions of modern motherhood are powerful and re-enforced by social media. Many women experience anxiety, depression, and a loss of self because part of the illusion is there should be no struggle. Research in neuroscience, hormones, and our environment informs us that the struggle is real, yet necessary and fundamental to help women become superhero mothers and protect and nurture their children. Changing the dialogue on struggle and embracing the challenges of motherhood can help women to normalize their experience, thus creating more space for love and nurturing of the next generation.
