Honest Mom Testimonials

What people are saying

Until I saw Libby’s Instagram, I felt so alone with how I felt as a SAHM. I didn’t realize so many mamas out there struggle and it’s normal and ok to talk about! Thank you for starting a dialogue on the aspects of motherhood that aren’t always discussed!

The Honest Mom account helped us have the hard conversations and helped me verbalize what I needed in my relationships. Thank you for being a beacon for parents, validating us, allowing us to know it's ok to be a work in progress and help us see ourselves in a new light.

Now I see other mothers and they have similar struggles and feelings and it’s so nice to not feel alone. Some days I feel broken and someday the comments on your posts make me feel not so alone even though I’ll never meet these people I know there’s other people out there that feel what I feel and I’m not crazy or bad at parenting. I’m just tired and overworked.
Kristina
I find the content really practical. Being a mom is hard. And Libby is real about what goes into being a parent who is trying to be a very very different mom than how she was raised.

When I first saw someone share one of your Reels, I went down the rabbit hole of seeing all your content about 'mom rage', being overwhelmed, having to manage the 'list' for EVERYONE...I'd never felt so validated as a mom in my life.
Taylor
Libby's content makes me feel seen and heard. As a mom of a toddler and a new baby on the way, I'm overwhelmed alot and feel like I'm often giving up my own needs including career building, for my children or other family sacrifices like taking care of my family when sick. The division of labour is real even in a home where my husband and I are trying to dismantle that. All of it is complex and noone has the answers but at least through Libby's posts and comments, I know I'm not alone and many women are also in this place.
Jess
This is the first account that I could actually relate to...that wasn't too polished, photoshopped, and unrealistic, but also not negative and brings me down too. Just real, raw, HONEST. I have also found some resources through Honest Mom that have been invaluable! I often look forward to seeing posts & stories from her when I open my social media.

Libby and her content is relatable on many levels. The rawness about doing all the hard things shines a light on what often makes so many mothers feel alone. Her humor and weirdness and advocating for showing up authentically is a breath of fresh air. If there was an award for favorite and most impactful account followed, it's Diary of an Honest Mom.
Candace
Just that. An Honest mom making other moms of every kind feel a sense of belonging. Allowing us to feel heard and seen which are things that we crave people would acknowledge every single day.
Lyssie
As a new mom you remind me that it’s okay to feel stuck or lonely right now; even though it’s the life we’ve wanted for so long, it can be hard and is hard. You are a smile in my day and the online friend I didn’t realize I needed!
Laura
I love the raw honesty, wit and sarcasm that the Honest Mom provides, especially around cycle breaking and the role of women as default parents. As a mom of three young kids whose spouse works shift work, I often find myself nodding along, saying HELL YES or having just had similar conversations with friends about content you post.
Michelle
I am so glad I found you on Instagram and wish I found it earlier in motherhood. I have laughed, cried, nodded along and looked things up because of Libby’s wonderful content. Her community made me feel less alone.
Katharine
Libby shows all her emotions so honestly and is filled with wit, humour and compassion. I absolutely love following her on Instagram and I always come away feeling more empowered and with a smile on my face.
Holly
The way Libby frames “an honest mom” has been eye opening for me. Her content is original and has helped me learn how to communicate my feelings of being the default parent to my partner.
Caitlin
I felt so seen and validated. I became armed with terminology that really helped me to move forward. I can’t thank Libby enough for the work she is doing every day.
Lauren
Watching the honest mom share her history, her healing and her trauma showed me that its ok to be open and honest and even made me feel comfortable starting therapy. I felt like I had found my tribe, that I was not alone.

I am a newly single mom of three kids who all have significant needs, there are days when I am feeling so overwhelmed and scared and I’ll suddenly come across your page… boom not alone anymore and I’m laughing or crying and feeling all the emotions with you. Thank you!

Not a mom yet, but after following you for some time, I feel better able to handle triggers and regulate my emotions. These things are essential to me breaking the cycle for my future generations and help me feel better able to handle what I find/make in my future.
Kyrianna
I am so thankful that I found you and your content. I used to feel like I am a bad mom because I don’t enjoy playing, I get annoyed by my kids, I need to be alone sometimes. I’d think, “a good mom wouldn’t think that way”. You’ve helped me realize that’s not true.
Stacy
Honest Mom is like having that one friend that understands you. Its like having that one reference book that picks you up and reminds you of your goal every time you read it.

When I consume Libby’s content, I feel heard, recognized, and not alone. I learn so much about breaking the cycle, narcissist parents, and just how to be the mother I want to be for my children. Day by day, Libby is helping me heal my inner child, while raising, loving, and being there for my children in the way I wish I was as a child.
Claire
I spent a long time thinking I was alone in my motherhood struggles. Helping other moms to see that they are not alone and empowering them is one of the most cathartic, healing and purposeful things I have done in my life. I love connecting with other moms and I am so thankful for all of your support
