Letting Go of Mum Guilt

‘Mum guilt’ can feel like almost an inescapable part of motherhood.

But Mum guilt doesn’t have to be inevitable, and it doesn’t have to be an immobilising emotion.

You can reduce the amount of Mum guilt you experience, without even aiming to completely eradicate it – because guilt can be useful.

Join this 4 part training video course on mother guilt to release the power of Mum guilt within your life and learn how guilt can be used constructively to foster connections in your relationships and strengthen your connection to yourself.

For mothers who identify with gentle, responsive, attachment, or conscious parenting styles, the feelings of guilt when you don’t mother in a way that aligns with your values, can feel overwhelming.

We can get stuck in ‘comparison’ with other mothers and comparing our children to others.

We can feel guilty over even having the thought that we aren’t enjoying motherhood or our children.

We can feel guilt when we look forward to, or enjoy time away from our children, and ask others for help.

Guilt can feel crippling when trying to balance work and family life, feeling like you can’t give either the attention you desire to.

The value we place on parenting and the love we have for our children means we hold ourselves to incredibly high standards. When we inevitably ‘fail’ to meet these standards, we feel guilty, and it can be hard to move forward with confidence and compassion.

Guilt can feel inevitable when living in a culture that puts motherhood on a pedestal, but devalues mothering.

But we can reclaim power over how guilt shows up in our mothering.
