Do You Need a Mom Coach? Why Mom Coaching May Be Beneficial

You know that as a busy mom, you need to make some big changes. But how? It seems like all day every day you’re busy breaking up fights, figuring out what to feed your kids, tripping over messes, and cleaning up food. You know there has to be a better way. Maybe it’s time for a mom coach.

I remember when I was a young mom. I was so overwhelmed and taking it out on my poor children. My house was a wreck, and I felt like I was always on the go. My to-do lists were unending, and I was quickly becoming the angry mom instead of a fun mom. Can you relate? If so, take a deep breath and keep reading. 

What is a Mom Coach?

So, what exactly is a mom coach? Why do moms even need a coach? I mean, haven’t moms figured out this whole mom thing for centuries?

We live in a different world than our moms and grandmothers did. Also, some of you may not have had a good example of homemaking skills growing up. There are so many competing messages coming at us from all sides. It’s hard to focus on the right things.

While coaching is not a new way to do things, it has become much more popular in recent years. I remember talking to someone one time who did life coaching years ago, but it wasn’t something my husband was on board with.

So, what is a mom coach? How is a mom coach different than a life coach? A mom coach is someone who specifically comes alongside you in the motherhood journey. She uses expertise from her own life and training to guide you. She is knowledgeable in helping you grow as a mom.

What Does a Mom Coach Do?

Now, exactly what a mommy coach does will depend on the coach and her expertise and focus. Some mom coaches will focus specifically on parenting or special needs children. Others will teach you housekeeping skills. Still another mom coach may teach you organizational or time management skills. 

Whatever her specialty, each mom coach will come alongside you, guide you, teach you, and keep you accountable. She will help you grow in the specific problem you’re struggling with. She also asks you the right questions in order to help you along your journey. In fact, there are many benefits of coaching.

Yes, you probably could learn all you needed to know on your own through books, blogs, and YouTube. However, a coach will help you with YOUR specific struggles. She will cut down on the years of trial and error as you try to figure things out on your own. A mommy coach will help you accomplish in not much time what it could have taken you years to accomplish on your own.

Mom coach example

If you’re anything like me, you want to know exactly what having a mom coach looks like. You’d love to see a real-life example, which is why I want to share with you the experience of Rebecca. When Rebecca came to me, she was feeling somewhat chaotic. She knew a lot of what she needed to do but needed help with the practical steps to break it down to make it an accomplishable goal. She needed the accountability to go with it.

Rebecca worked with me for 12 weeks. During that time, here are some of the things she said she learned:

  • She learned to be more focused
  • To think through what she’s saying “yes” to and to prioritize what will keep her family and herself in a good place to accomplish their God-given mission! 
  • She’s still growing in meal planning but it relieves so much stress off her afternoon/evening when she plans ahead! 
  • It’s helped her to be proactive with life not just reactive!
  • Her biggest takeaway was being more organized and setting priorities which brings more peace in herself and her home.

Afterward, this is what she had to say:

“Having 3 kids within 19 months…(twins first) pretty much derailed me…as much as I wanted to be that mom that had it “all together” I definitely was failing miserably…and it wasn’t improving as the years went along with 3 toddlers. I was not liking who I’d become and how frustrated I was getting with my children over things. I wanted the fun and peace back in our home. When I saw Aimee was offering this “Mom coaching” as I call it I was desperate for change and signed up. It has been such a blessing to me and made a big difference in my personal and family life! I look forward to continuing with her monthly coaching opportunities for continued support on this journey of motherhood!”

Signs You Need a Mom Coach

You may be wondering if you really need a mom coach. I’ll be honest, it’s not for everyone. Some moms are super motivated and able to implement the things they learn on their own. Some of you may have a local mentor who can help you with your struggle areas. Others have incredible support and help from their families. However, for others of you, it may be the best thing you ever do for yourself and your family. (Yes, it does impact your whole family).

However, others of you will greatly benefit from having a mom coach. In order to help you figure that out, see how many of these you relate to.

  • I want to stop yelling at my family
  • I want to wake up ready for the day and not already overwhelmed
  • I want to have more time to spend with my husband and children.
  • I’m exhausted all the time and don’t know how to fix it.
  • I want to stop yelling!
  • My house is a wreck, and I just can’t seem to manage it.
  • I want to feel calm and peaceful.
  • I want to live with purpose but I’m just a hot mess!
  • I’ve tried so many things but nothing seems to be working
  • I don’t have any kind of routine in place, and I don’t know how to start one.
  • I want to simplify my life and stop focusing on things that don’t matter.
  • I am so busy and can’t seem to manage my time at all.

Take a minute to evaluate how many of these you resonate with and if you’ve been able to make any changes on your own. If several of these are things you’re experiencing of feeling, it may be time for you to get some help. 

Life Coach for Moms

Perhaps you realize you’d love to look into having a mom coach. The first step will be to ask yourself some questions. What exactly do I need help with? Where am I struggling? What goals am I working toward?

After knowing what you need help with, you will want to find a mom coach who can specifically help you with what you need help with. There are several out there, including me. You will want to book some sort of coaching session with them in order to see if they are a good fit for you. Most mom coaches will offer a free initial call so you can see how exactly they can help you.

If you know you need help, please don’t put it off. Coaching doesn’t only help you but will help your whole family as well! What are you waiting for?
