I was sitting in the recovery room after giving birth to my third child waiting to hold him for the first time. The birth went well, and my husband had gone to check in at work. Expecting to see my son any moment, the doctor came in and said something about the shape of his eyes and the low tone in his muscles and “I think he may have Trisomy 21 or Down syndrome.”
When you receive a diagnosis about your child, your world stops. Whether it is autism, Down syndrome, or another developmental disability, your family’s lives change in many unforeseen ways. Life coaching can help special needs moms thrive.
Like ours, one in six families in the United States has a child diagnosed with special needs. When we get this diagnosis, we commit our lives to our children with developmental disabilities. Parents manage family, career, and household plus the added responsibilities that come with raising a special needs child and caring for a special needs adult. In the process, we often lose ourselves.

Life Coaching Can Help Special Needs Moms Thrive
A few years ago, I realized that I was stuck. I had gone through a corporate layoff and was trying to figure out what was next. I didn’t want to settle for just being fine. I didn’t want to continue living in survival mode. I wanted to do more of what makes me feel truly alive. And I wanted to do something that made a difference for families like ours.
That is when I found life coaching. Through coaching, I identified what is important to me and developed a plan for my life. But first, I worked on the junk in my mind that had been holding me back from truly thriving.
