Changing The Motherhood Narrative

With honesty, humor and hard conversations

Libby sheds a light on the very real difficulties that modern mothers face and empowers them to redefine for themselves what it means to be a “good mom”. She asks us to question the status quo and to say yes to ourselves, so that we can live as fulfilled people – not just mothers.

Through her own story, Libby sheds an important light on topics like mental health and cycle breaking in motherhood, and models just how impactful it is to talk about hard things. Often called “a breath of fresh air” by those who stumble upon her silly or sincere content, Libby connects us with honesty, vulnerability and shows us that we can reclaim our motherhood experience.

Motherhood

Motherhood is hard and it’s even harder when we feel like we are alone. For a long time I struggled with things like overwhelm, guilt, comparison, overstimulation, mental health, lack of support, being the default parent, loss of identity and so much more. I became resentful, exhausted and it affected my whole experience of motherhood. Now I share about these things and more to help moms know they are not alone and inspire them to change that by getting honest about their circumstances, practicing self-compassion and prioritizing themselves. Read some of my blogs that dive into the hard conversations about motherhood and know for certain that you deserve to be whole.

Mental Health

I have struggled with my mental health for most of my life. For a lot of that time I didn’t have the support, the information, the confidence or even the language to talk about it. That is why I am such an advocate for those who are struggling to see the light because I know how dark it can get. I want you to know that you matter, that your well-being matters and that there is hope that things will get better. And while there are lifestyle changes, therapy, medication, social supports and more to get you on a path to recovery and living with mental health, I am here to let you know you are not alone and to remind you that you are worth taking care of. I am so happy you are here. Read on to hear more about my story and ways I hope to support you…

Cycle Breaking

I consider myself to be a cycle breaker. Cycle breakers are parents who have decided that it ends with them. Whether it’s the cycle of physical or emotional abuse, generational trauma, drug or alcohol abuse, martyrdom, family dysfunction, authoritative parenting or any other unhealthy cycle- we are parents who have said ‘enough’. Breaking my own family cycles has been some of the hardest and most important work of my life. I am so grateful to be a part of a generation who is determined to change the narrative on parenting to be more humble, self-aware and intentional but it can be exhausting and lonely. Read on to hear about some of the cycles I am breaking and the ways in which you can find support as a cycle breaker in this community…
