Hey, mama! I'm Kate.
The creator and voice behind Motherhood Grace.
Transitioning from an ambitious, hard-working independent woman to I-need-you-24-7, exhausted, yet gracious mother was challenging for me. I struggled with postpartum anxiety alone for too long because I was embarrassed to admit I didn't have it all together and needed help.
I didn't know where to turn: free, unregulated mommy groups online added a lot of "noise" to my anxiety, admitting I was struggling in-person was terrifying and mothering a colicky, high-needs baby made the thought of taking care of myself utterly impossible.
Through journaling, therapy, and developing a deeper understanding of myself, I embraced this new chapter of my life and discovered the miracle of motherhood... and now I want to help other new moms experience the same.
I see you, mama.
