Why is it such a commonly held belief that the more you self-sacrifice, the better of a mother, wife, and person you are? Where did this notion even come from? Why do women feel badly when we set boundaries or take care of our needs? If you’re looking to understand some of the deeper causes of our struggles as women, check out this podcast episode. In this episode I talk to Bethany Webster, author of “Discovering the Inner Mother,” about our inherited cultural beliefs, how the Mother wound affects our lives, how to lean into healing, and looking to the past to change the future.

  1. Our culture perpetuates damaging beliefs about what it means to be a woman.
  2. What is the “Mother Wound” and how it affects our self-image.
  3. The best thing we can do for our children is to heal our own mother wounds by finding our inner mother.

Bethany Webster is a writer, international speaker and transformational coach. Through blending research on intergenerational trauma, feminist theory, and psychology with her own personal story, Bethany’s work is the result of decades of research and her own journey of healing.
