Meet the Moms: Jillian

Meet the Moms: Jillian
March 19, 2018 Our Circle of Moms


My name is Jillian and I’m a proud first time mom of an infant. I have my PhD in Psychology and I have been working with kids, teens, and adults for years. Due to my educational background, I wasn’t too worried about becoming a mom other than the actual experience of giving birth. Ironically, delivering my baby was much easier than I’d expected compared to looking after the little person who came along! What I’ve come to realize is that there aren’t any perfect answers when it comes to parenthood. 

I’ve been journaling my mommy experience since trying to become pregnant so this is a great outlet for passing along those nuggets of wisdom.

It is my desire to normalize some of the concerns caregivers have because knowing other parents experienced what I was experiencing was my greatest comfort during sleepless nights.  

Stay tuned for more posts about my personal struggles and triumphs in this journey of mommyhood. This role has been the hardest but most rewarding endeavor I’ve undertaken!

    Welcome, Jillian! Newborns are tough! I don’t think any degree of education or any amount of books or friends’ advice could ever prepare you beforehand for even an “easy” baby. 😀 You are so right – it has always been a huge comfort to me to know that other people are going through the same things and are making it through. 🙂

    Hang in there!

    Welcome Jillian! I’m a first time mom of an infant as well! I work in IT and I had the opposite worries- I was more afraid of parenting than labor! Haha!

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
