I want your motherhood to be powerful, instead of a battle with identity loss.

Do you miss your intellect, creativity, and spark?

Are you lost in a wild new territory that you don't know how to navigate?

Are you suffering from birth trauma, burnout, or angst?

Do you feel guilty for wanting a motherhood that sacrifices less of who you are?

After being steamrolled by postpartum life, I left my job at Yale University to develop the first coaching practice devoted to mothers' sense of self. 

 

I'm Meredith Shepard, Ph.D., and I want you to have a motherhood that is in symbiosis with who you are.

READ WHY I BUILT THIS

 

I wanted to know if I was alone in experiencing motherhood as identity loss. (I was not.)

 

...I built this for the mothers that novelist Lauren Groff describes seeing "in glimpses, bent like shepherdess crooks, scanning the floor for tiny Legos or half-chewed grapes or the people they once were, slumped in the corners.”
