Imposter Syndrome in Motherhood - Happy as a Mother

Imposter Syndrome in Motherhood


with Clinical Psychologist Dr. Kelly Vincent



Do you experience these thoughts?….I should be a better Mom.  I’m a fraud. Maybe I wasn’t meant to be a Mom. What am I going to do when others find out I have no idea what I’m doing? Why can’t I be a perfect Mom like everyone else? Then this episode on Imposter Syndrome is for you! Imposter syndrome loves to creep in when you are trying something new, different, and challenging. It can be especially prevalent in motherhood because motherhood doesn’t come with clear guidelines or a manual. When these thoughts creep in, we begin to doubt what we are capable of. In this episode, Kelly and I talk about what imposter syndrome is, the 5 different personas it can take, how we can manage our imposter syndrome, and how this is a common part of many people’s human experience.
