About The Motherhood Journey
My goal is to become a mom mentor/ postpartum doula. I would love to be able to use this as a ministry to teen and single moms.The transition to motherhood is hard and sometimes lonely. I want to be there to help. I believe that some postpartum depression can be prevented if women had more support and less pressure as new moms.
In June 2014, I became a mom and my life has not been the same since. My son brings so much joy in the midst of hardship. Being a mom has renewed the passion I’ve always had for helping people. More specifically, I want to help moms, to help them know that they are not alone. I want to empower moms to become the best version of themselves by providing resources and community through my blog and as a postpartum doula. Moms need support and encouragement to survive a transition that can be very tough. People say that I am passionate and have a deep sense of right and wrong. I’ve been known to say that I want to have five or a million children but I’m open to however many children God gives us– naturally or through adoption. I’m a very calm laid-back person but I’m also type A: I like to organize but I let things get a little messy. I love to spend time with my son but I also love to have a break and spend time with other moms.
When it comes to people, I am most interested in moms and children. I have been working with children since I was a teenager and I worked in childcare for the last several years. My favorite things to do are write, create and help people by bringing them hope. Even though I haven’t been a mom for long, that is the area I am naturally the strongest. I want to help moms by providing support as a postpartum doula. I’m also using this blog to do that. The times in my life that I felt the most fulfilled were working as a camp counselor, leading Students for Life at SPU, and becoming a mom.
I’m a mom, Jesus follower, writer, blogger, creator, Pinterest junkie, and on the road to becoming a postpartum doula.
