Does This Sound Familiar?

  1. Navigating motherhood feels like a guessing game: Without your own mom's guidance, you often find yourself unsure about your decisions, feeling like you're just making things up as you go along.

  2. Guilt and self-doubt are constant visitors: You often wonder if you're doing enough, if you're doing it right, or if you're just not cut out to be a good mom. These doubts can make motherhood feel more like a chore than a joy.

  3. Generic advice just doesn't cut it: You've heard all the typical parenting tips, but they don't seem to fit with your unique situation. You're longing for an approach to motherhood that feels more "you".

  4. You're emotionally worn out: Between the everyday demands of motherhood and the emotional toll of missing your own mom, you're left feeling drained and in need of strategies to cope.

If you're nodding along to any of these, you're not alone. And that's exactly why "Redefining Motherhood: Letting Go of Guilt & Embracing Your Journey" was created - to offer practical, tailored guidance for moms just like you, who are navigating the unique challenges of motherhood without their own moms.

Hi, I'm Melissa and this is why I've created The Redefining Motherhood Workshop just for you.

Jackson and Me on beach

I've been a momless mom for over 12 years and know what it's like to parent without the support and guidance of a loving mom in my day-to-day life.

I love being a mom, entrepreneur and psychologist. My son, frequently hangs out with a lovely group of friends, he is enjoying the start of school, and can't wait for the school musical practices to begin. My psychological practice is thriving, and I am passionate about my coaching program for moms without a mom. 

But it wasn't always like this. Unfortunately, the first few years of my son's life were not only among the most challenging times of my life but also a time when I felt utterly alone and completely lost in how to be a mom. My mom and both sisters had died before he was born, and I had lived in our town for less than a year.

Over time I realized that I felt different because I was different. There are unique challenges that all moms without a mom experience that impacts their mothering.

 I knew I needed to change how I was living my life. And that is when I developed the programs here at Moms Without a Mom.  

I want all moms to thrive and recognize their inner strength, especially those moms like me who don't have a loving, supportive mom in their day-to-day lives. We are stronger when we have a community that understands us!
