I want to share with you all about confidence as a mom and how you can boost your confidence as a mom. Why? Because haven’t you notice that once you become a mom, you feel more insecure, nervous, worry and not good enough?
It’s like you pressed on a switch and now you don’t even recognize yourself anymore. Your life seems like a never ending stress, worry and guilt ridden life.
Becoming a mother is amazing, I love it and it’s what I was meant to be. I’m sure you feel this way, but even if you don’t, it’s okay. I’m honest, motherhood is hard sometimes. I get it, trust me.
But one thing that I do want to encourage you to do as a mom, is to never give up on YOURSELF. Know that you can boost your confidence as a mom. You can increase your self esteem and feel good again. Actually feel better than before!
Some motherhood struggles you be may experiencing:
- Not loving your body
- Stressing out about house chores, parenting, marriage
- Worrying about your kids all of the time
- Losing yourself in motherhood, you don’t know who you are anymore
- Feeling insecure, low self esteem and feeling unworthy
- Taking care of everyone else but yourself
- Comparing yourself to other moms and feeling like shit about it
- Yelling more than you want to
- Feeling moody and angry most of the time
What all of these things does to you is lower your confidence as a mom and woman
Because you are focusing on all the things going wrong..all the things you didn’t do right as a mom and focusing on NEGATIVE..
Building confidence as a mom is all about how YOU SEE your life and yourself
So it starts with you
Doing the inner work and learning to LOVE yourself again
I know that it’s hard to lose a part of you that you will never get back…you are a MOM now
Of course things change
Of course YOU change
Nothing is the same
But I like to say that is FOR THE BETTER!
I will help you increase your self confidence as a mom so that you feel better, happier and enjoy your life more.

I love to journal and in fact I created this amazing and helpful guided journal for moms. Journaling helps you be in tune with your feelings and emotions. Journal for moms helps you find negative patterns and triggers that you may want to stop and be aware of. It really does help you be in control of your life and emotions.
Here’s what to journal to boost your confidence as a mom:
- Name 5 things that you love about yourself
- List 10 things that you are really good at
- Think about a time where you felt confident about yourself. Where were you? What were you doing? What were you wearing? ect..
4. Celebrate yourself
This is so important mama. Celebrating yourself not only feels good, it shifts your mindset about the day and helps you see that you are doing things right. Even on your worst moms days, build yourself up and celebrate your small wins. Whatever it may be, it’s still a win! This of course increases your confidence as a mom and makes you see that you are doing a great job.
5.What are you good at?
Another way to boost your self esteem as a mom and increase confidence is really to tap into what you;’re good at and do more of it. If you’re good a drawing, gardening, writing poems, cooking ect. Do more of it. Again is all about tapping into your talents because I am sure you have them. Bring them out, feel inspired and feel more like you again.
6.Let go of unrealistic expectations
Giving yourself the expectation that you have to be perfect or else you are not a good mom. Will only teach you that you will fail and then you will feel bad that you didn’t live up to that standard. Which then will decrease your self confidence and self-esteem. When you let go of all these unrealistic expectations that you are giving yourself and actually do motherhood your way. You will learn to trust yourself more and increase your confidence as a mom.
7. Embrace your mistakes
One thing that as moms we are scared of is making a mistake as a parent or failing at parenting. But, I have a different approach to this. EMBRACE failure and mistakes! Crazy right? But why? Because the more you fail, the more you learn and the more confident you will become as a parent. No longer are you scared of doing something wrong, you allow imperfections and you learn and grow from it.
8.Take care of yourself
Why is it so hard for us moms to take care of ourselves? Right? But I do have to tell you mama, as a life coach self care is what I focus on when working with moms. Because when you fill your cup, you feel so much better. You parent better and you are able to feel more confident. Self care is about taking care of YOU so that you can be the mom and wife that you want to be. Practicing self care can mean exercising, taking a break, going on a date night, reading the bible in a quiet room ect..
