Moms without a Mom coaching with Melissa Reilly, Psy.D.

Hello to my fellow moms without a mom.

For all those experiencing motherlessness,

you are in the right place.

  • I am so glad you found Moms Without A Mom! You are not alone on this motherhood journey. There are many of us out there that do not have a loving mother to depend on as we navigate motherhood, especially as a first-time mom.

  • As a Mom Without a Mom, I know all too well the challenges of being a mom without the support, guidance, and assistance from one's mother.
  • Being a mom without a mom is more common than people realize, and yet many of us feel so isolated and alone in our motherhood journey.
  • Many of us don't know where to get our questions answered or how to seek out the assistance we need.
  • Those of us who are dealing with motherlessness are more likely to have feelings of longing, sadness, and even anger triggered during our normal day-to-day parenting.

You Can Thrive as A Momless Mom

  • Moms Without A Mom is here to provide support, guidance, and reassurance when you need it because you need more than just great resources (which we have). You also need a strong support system (we have that too).
  • We know you can be a good mother even if you no longer have (or never have had) a good mother in your life. You will develop the tools to be a confident mom.
  • The relationship you had (or didn't have) impacts how you see yourself as a mom, but it doesn't define you. We are here to make sure you feel good about being the mother you have always wanted to be. Whether you grew up dealing with motherlessness, had an emotionally absent mother, or miss your mom [or not] it affects your relationship with your child.
  • Knowledge and skills alone don't create resilience; rather, overcoming hardship, having a community, and living by one's values does. As a momless mom, you’ve experienced hardship and have persevered. We are here to help you build your community, recognize and live out your values, feel strong in your mom identity, and compassionately support you during times when grief is triggered.

It's hard to be a mom.

It's time you feel fully supported.

Hi, I'm Dr. Melissa Reilly

Momless Mom, Coach, and Clinical Psychologist

I am a mom without a mom of two boys, clinical psychologist, and Mom Coach passionate about helping moms separated from their mother by physical distance, estrangement, or death, move from feelings of insecurity, isolation, and overwhelm to a place of resilience.

Through my personal motherlessness and professional experience, I have come to recognize that moms without a mom experience grief as part of their motherhood experience, even if they don’t realize it. The relationship moms have had (or didn’t have) with their mothers impacts how they see themselves but doesn’t define them. I believe it isn’t knowledge and skills that create resilience, but rather it is born through overcoming hardship, having a community, and living by one’s values.

I am honored to walk with both new first-time moms and experienced moms on their journey to becoming the mom they always wanted to be.
