I like to be sure, real sure about the decisions I make. So I listen to my gut, pray and look for proof that I am on the right track. Here are my notes…
Parenting is a big task. Although two people are given the title "parents" it's too big of a responsibility for just two people. When it comes to raising fully developed kids into emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually healthy adults, I don't think anyone would disagree that it takes a village.
Life in general delivers a cross to be carried. Even when it's full of mostly great things there are tough moments and hard decisions to be made. Having kid(s) takes that to another level because your decisions have an impact not only on your life but also the lives of the little people that depend on you.
Furthermore, "they" say you can judge the state of a society based on how it treats its women. At the moment we, as a whole, aren't living our best lives (and it's not because we're lazy or incompetent or short on ideas). We're in the midst of a maternal health crisis. Though we're starting more businesses than any other group, we're not being compensated at the same levels. Many of us are doing the jobs of two parents and sometimes grandparents. I could go on. Basically, our dreams and voices have been ignored and everyone is losing out as a result.
All hope isn't gone though. Creating opportunities and space for thriving for women, moms in particular, will catapult our society and families in a positive direction. Coaching can and is helping moms to hold on to their dreams and their babies.
Moms need coaches because…
Coaches do all of these. Coaches that focus on supporting women who are moms pay extra attention to the unique challenges and opportunities that motherhood provides. They understand the babysitting juggle, the financial needs and the routine changes that come with a child's development (and they can work through the background noise during a meeting).
Coaches have a leg up in supporting moms compared to your friends. Friends forget to check in and sometimes fear offending you. Coaches aren't focused on maintaining a personal relationship but helping you accomplish the goals you set for yourself. They win when you win. And their money depends on it.
If you're a mom looking to leave a mark on the world simply by taking control of your finances, health and goals while enjoying your family in the process, get yourself a coach. It's a worthwhile investment in yourself. I know firsthand because I have a coach and I am a coach!
Do you have a coach? If so, what have you accomplished as a result?
I coach women to prepare for and thrive as mothers via birth, breastfeeding and parenting education and self-care events. I am a Black crunchy momma that has something to say about how we create life, give birth, what we eat, how we connect with each other, and relate to $$.
