Think about being steadfast…
Well, steadfast means firm in belief, determination, or adherence. A few synonyms include dedicated, faithful and constant.
As we all know, life has sooooo many transitions! Just think, at one point you had no kids and then within a few moments you became somebody’s very own mama.
Now add in being away from your new baby because you needed to return to a full time job in the work force after maternity leave.
You think returning to work is going to be the same, but it’s not! You now have a completely different life thrown at you and you’re needed in so many ways.
This easily leads to feelings of stress and overwhelm. I understand mama, anyone would be overwhelmed by this. The mental load of working motherhood can get heavy.
But I’m here to tell you that you can get through it. There are plenty of working moms out there kicking butt and taking names. But how do they do it? Keep reading.
Remember that word steadfast?
Here you will learn to appreciate changes as they come, learn how to work through them from the inside-out. Then you tighten up your bra straps and keep it moving….steadfast!
I deal with the same daily working mom issues myself.
I’ve found that with Spiritual guidance as my “start here” point and a steadfast mindset you can ease the mental load and increase opportunities for more joyful experiences.
On this website I provide you with clear, time saving action plans to avoid stress eating as you adjust into working mom life.
The posts here will cover a wide range of everyday working mom issues including maternity leave, self care, planning and organizing tasks, family bonding and even health and medical tips.
Why the health tips?
As working moms we get so caught up in not only caring for everyone else, but also managing the home!
Unfortunately, with being so busy, our own health can get pushed to the side. Not here!
That’s why you will find tips on taking care of yourself here.
Health care can be overwhelming and full of stuffy info. You don’t have to worry about that here. I break it down into normal terms that make sense with easy to follow tips you can use to create a healthier life.
A little more about me

This is YOUR time!
You deserve to stop feeling overwhelmed and confused as you transition through working motherhood.
You may not feel the weight of the mental load until you’re stressed out and I want you to learn simple tactics here to avoid that.
Sometimes we don’t realize the mental load is building up in the background because that’s just the way life has always been. You need to stop running on empty or just enough!
Working motherhood doesn’t have to be a confusing, frantic scramble in a state of constant tiredness.
It will become that way and stay there if you don’t take responsibility for your health, but you already know that because you’re here.
I want you to adopt the steadfast mindset of making a dedication to staying the course of being the best version of yourself no matter what the hiccup may be along the way. That my friend is the Holistic Woman Effect.
Whether you like to read a quick article on the go or you’re a cozy homebody like me that enjoys listening to podcasts with a cup of herbal tea; take a look through the blog and start easing your mental load now. You deserve it!
I look forward to hearing from you.
Much love and support,
