Coaching for moms might seem like a completely foreign concept to you so today I wanted to help you learn how it can make a huge difference in your life. When it comes to motherhood, there is no formal training required to take the job. No one prepares you for the completely life-altering commitment being a mom is.
What’s worse, here in the States, there are very few resources alotted for moms. You have the baby and they basically tell you good luck when you leave the hospital.
If you have a maternal figure in your life, you’ll likely get some guidance from them. But who is there to help guide you on the path of motherhood that you want to take?
That’s where coaching for moms comes in. Getting a coach in motherhood is the quickest way to figure out the path you want to pave for yourself. It might seem strange at first but below you’ll discover five ways coaching for moms can help them thrive indefinitely.

Motherhood presents a world of options to us. To breastfeed or bottle feed? To use purees or Baby Led Weaning? Which sleep training method should you use? How much screen time should they watch? How many activities should they be in? The list could go on forever.
Using a coach can help you choose the best solutions for your family. A great mom coach won’t tell you what to choose, they’ll help you get clear on what you really want so you can make the best decision for that moment.
Getting coaching as a mom can teach you how to trust your gut and lean into knowing what the right choices are for you and your family. Clarity coaching for moms isn’t necessarily something you’ll need forever but it can be incredibly powerful to try it out a few times when you a re feeling particularly stuck in indecision.
Much of what we need as moms is the validation that the things we deal with day in and day out are just as hard as we think they are. Having someone hear our struggles and empathize with them can be the greatest bit of encouragement.
Once you find the right coach, getting validation during your coaching sessions will be easy. Often a great coach will suss out where you need validation in the first few sessions. If this is particularly important to you, definitely make a point of letting you coach know at your first session so they can plan accordingly.
In life, there are many times when we will want to try new things, learn new skills or better our minds and bodies. Setting goals can be a great way to work towards this self-development and having accountability with those goals is the quickest way to see results.
Receiving coaching as a mom can help keep you accountable for those goals. A great coach can even help you unearth these goals from you brain and help you decide which ones you want to pursue first.
Having accountability is the surest way to accomplish your goals so working with a coach who offers this service would be extremely beneficial for any moms who really want to make some headway on their personal development journey.
First and foremost, you probably need guidance in motherhood. Which is not the same thing as unsolicited advice! You need someone to listen to your struggles and help guide you to make the right choices for you and your family.
A mom coach can do just that. They can help you unravel a problem your facing or assist you in making a decision that you might be stuck on. The best coaches for moms will help you see the situation for what it is and aid you in using your own intuition and judgement for a solution.
Areas a Mom Coach Can Guide You In:
- Finding a parenting style that suits you best
- Help you figure out what the best course of action would be with a variety of parenting conundrums for new moms: sleep training, potty training, choosing a family vehicle, help with car seats, help with navigating breastfeeding and bottle feeding and general guidance over the first 12 months of development.
- Working through boundary setting and advocating for yourself with friends and family who might not be as supportive as you want them to be.

As a whole, women do not celebrate themselves enough. As far as moms are concerned, it’s even less! And motherhood is the place where we need to celebrate all of our wins the most; the big and the small. A coach will not only celebrate you, they will teach you how to celebrate yourself.
Coaching for moms at its core is to show you how great you already are. So much of it revolves around holding up a mirror to show you what you’re great at and how you can cut yourself some slack in the areas you’re not. Any decent mom coach out there will boost you up with praise and celebration.
