Happy as a Mother Podcast

about my process

"From the spot-on Instagram posts, to the relevant and relatable podcast episodes, to the Motherhood Road Map resources, HAAM has helped me evaluate my parenting values, show more self-compassion and get back to enjoying the chaos and beauty that is motherhood. I am truly grateful for the huge role HAAM has played in my mothering journey."

"I felt seen and understood after following Happy as a Mother. What I was going through made much more sense, made me feel like I was navigating motherhood with other moms through the account. Thanks for all you do, Erica."

"Being a first time mom, I had no idea the emotional toll that came with postpartum. I found the HAAM podcast and instantly felt like I wasn’t alone. The “baby blues” were real, the guilt I felt was okay to feel, and the sadness I felt was okay to feel. HAAM helped me understand that and taught me how to cope with those feelings."

> The difference between shame and guilt
> How to identify your shame triggers

"I was a first time mom of newborn triplets when I found HAAM drowning in bottles and isolation. HAAM helped me realize how common some of my negative feelings were and helped me feel more connected to other stay at home moms who were probably feeling just as overwhelmed and lonely as I was. I regularly use HAAM’s infographics as daily reminders for myself that 1) my feelings are valid and very common 2) I’m a great mom regardless of how I’m feeling and how my babies behave. So grateful for this community of mothers!"
