MAYBE BABY ONE-ON-ONE PERSONAL COACHING
For the Biggest Question of Your Life
Why? To become a mother or not is the biggest conversation women aren’t having yet it’s the acupressure point for what happens in our life and who we become. We need to know our truth and we deserve to be at peace with it, no matter what it is. The cost of ambivalence is huge. We pay for it in avoidance, time, energy, the wrong relationships, confused sense of self, a fear of regret, masking our desires or not daring to look.
Honor the whispers in your heart. Together we uncover your truth. Like the Maybe Baby Group Program Self Study, Maybe Baby One on One Coaching, gently and lovingly moves you toward your truth and helps you make peace with it. Your entire life shifts closer to your heart; your truth.
And I help get you there.
"Ambivalence has been one of the greater challenges of my life. Often torn by the strong pull of two very different polarities - to be or not to be a mother was one of the most deeply painful ones. I often felt frozen, paralyzed by the fear of making the wrong choice. I took Maybe Baby in the spring of 2012, about halfway through the course, listening to one of the interviews I became completely pissed off by something the guest speaker said, almost offhand. Yet, my reaction to her words was the greatest gift as it swung me very clearly in the direction of Knowing.
Processing the rage brought me to peace, and a clarity that had eluded me for too long. I am so very grateful for this offering of yours, Randi... Thank you. "

"Randi's Maybe Baby course landed in my life at exactly the right time: I wasn't sure whether or not I wanted to have children, and felt like I was running out of time to decide. When I looked around at my friends and family, it seemed like people either fell into the "kids-are-the-only-thing-that-will-ever-give-meaning-to-your-life!" camp or the "kids-will-ruin-your-life!" camp - there was very little discussion of the gray area in between. Maybe Baby gave me a chance to explore my ambivalence about parenthood in a safe, no-pressure environment.
I loved hearing the voices of other women who had walked this path in a variety of different ways, and came away feeling that my experience, too, was valid. This course helped me to move beyond my ambivalence and make the decision to start trying to create a family - and that's a huge, life-changing gift."

"Maybe Baby allowed me a gentle, safe space to grapple with a question that I didn't even know I could ask. There is so much that is packed into the concept of motherhood, much of which I had been given from traditions, religion, culture, and my upbringing. The Maybe Baby experience helped me to unpack all of those nuances and begin to figure out what my truth actually was without any guilt or shame. What I loved most was that Randi didn't have a bias, so I always felt ok with whatever answer has come to the question of Maybe Baby with no pressure to feel a certain way.
It felt freeing to oscillate between answers and to not fully know at certain points. As I embark on the path of motherhood, expecting my first child in Dec, I feel a deep groundedness because it is something I consciously chose after years of reflection, which began with Maybe Baby. So grateful for it and hope that many women get the chance to be with the question with a great teacher like Randi!"

I did my research. I put out a request on Twitter to interview women who were ambivalent about motherhood or weren't entirely sure about their decision. With only two tweets, and within two hours, I received over 200 responses from women around the world who were eager to speak honestly and without judgement about where they were at with this very question. I've found this is a huge conversation that is not being had, with shared concerns, pressure and wondering hearts, and have designed a program to get to your deepest truth and feel comfort in it.
Quick and heartfelt reads: You're so not alone in this question- thought it often feels like it. My sweet friend, Marianne Elliot has a lovely piece about her own Maybe Baby question and our work together.
