We are told by so many that motherhood will be the best experience of your life - you will be joyful, excited, and even elevated. You are even expected to be happy at all times. But is this the real experience of motherhood? Or does the truth look more like exhaustion, overwhelm, and confusion?

In this episode, Ludmila creates a space for an honest conversation about motherhood and speaks from her own experience of self-exploration when motherhood broke her and made her again. Because no book or course can prepare you for the role of a lifetime, and if you are struggling, it is okay!


  • The all-consuming truth of motherhood
  • Challenges motherhood can bring to a relationship
  • Why is there a stigma around the struggles of motherhood?
  • How children are mirrors of ourselves
  • Acceptance, grace, and compassion


“I remember talking to my own mom, and she told me, wow, I'm so happy for you. You are entering the best chapter of your life. And then we had our first son. And I looked in the mirror, and I couldn't recognize the person I was looking at. I had no idea who I was.” - Ludmila Woodruff

“So many women struggle in silence. And it doesn't have to be a struggle in silence. It can be an open communication and conversation that we all can have as a society, as culture, as communities, and as families.” - Ludmila Woodruff

“You can only love your kids and extend kindness to them to the extent that you do that for yourself.” - Ludmila Woodruff

I love Ludmila’s podcast! These episodes are inspiring and continue to guide me after my sessions with her. Thank you for bringing us even more value and inspiration to create the life we truly want.

Wow!!! I don’t know how to put into words or even express that I did not think outside of my coaching sessions your teachings can get any better. The episodes are just as amazing and eye opening as our sessions - coaching with you changed my life and I’m glad you are paving a way for an audience of women to be able to hear vulnerability and deep awareness with in your episodes!!
