My name is Claire; I am a mother of four girls, ages three to eleven. I am also a licensed Clinical Psychologist, a wife, a daughter, a daughter-in-law, a friend, a sister, a volunteer, and a writer. I have a lot of roles I am balancing simultaneously.
I am not unique. Most women, especially mothers, are doing exactly what I am doing: managing the multiple roles in our lives while raising a family. If you would like to read more about my background, please go here. I spent many years going to school to become a psychologist. When I became a mother, none of my education seemed to matter. I was overwhelmed balancing the demands of caring for my children. I spent years preparing to be a psychologist, and less than nine months preparing to become a mother. When my first children were born, fraternal twins, like many women, I had to learn about being a mother once my children were born.
Motherhood is the ultimate-learn as you go-commitment.
I have created this site, Mom’s Well-Being, as a place for mothers to gain support, perspective and skills to improve self-care and well-being. There is no one right way to be a mother; however, there are many ways to improve your own self-care and overall well-being. Please take a few minutes and read about Self-Care here and Well-Being here.
I hope you will continue to visit this site to be inspired, comforted and encouraged on your journey of motherhood. If you would like to receive notifications of new posts, please subscribe to my blog on the side-bar menu.
