~ Doña Bumgarner

Are you a mom and feel like a part of you is missing? That you’re going through the motions and things look good but it all feels a bit empty? Then this episode is for you and I chose it SPECIFICALLY for my 50th birthday because I’ve been there and Doña Bumgarner has too. With so much love in our hearts for you…

You can’t quit motherhood (well – you technically can but that’s not what we’re going to focus on here) so when Doña found herself unexpectedly pregnant and with no clue what the hell she was doing…she trusted her gut and looked back on life realizing she’d been able to figure things out thus far so what’s one more (admittedly HUGE) thing?

Listen in as Doña and I talk about how hard (and rewarding!) it can be to be a mom in a culture that doesn’t really support mothers…not really if we’re being honest AND why it’s so so SO important not to lose yourself along the way.

Remember…our kids are watching!




Doña Bumgarner is a life coach for frustrated moms who are exhausted living in a culture that doesn’t support them as moms or as women. She helps them get in control of all the parts of their lives, so they can feel like great moms AND whole humans.

Doña is also the host of Nurturing Habit podcast, about the ways we nurture ourselves as whole women so we can live more complete and vibrant lives.
