In this episode:what do you do when you lose your mother and you’re about to become a mother yourself? Who do you ask about raising a child? Where do you turn when you are separated from your mother by physical distance, estrangement, or death? In this episode we're going to learn how you, as a mother, can recognize that it’s OK, and if your spouse has lost their mother, how you can help them move forward from feelings of insecurity, isolation, and overwhelm to a place of resilience.
My guest in this episode is a mom without a mom of two boys, a 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. Dr Melissa Reilly, through her personal and professional experience, has 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. In this episode we’re going to have a conversation and learn about the notion that 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.
