Season 3 Episode 10: The Mother Wound: Are You Showing up to Life With This Big Wound?

Growing up we learn so much from our mothers and growing up the messaging we receive is “obey thy mother.”

The things we learned from our mothers growing up and the way they coped in the world show up in us, throughout our lives.


What if our mother was wrong?

What if they are passing along their own trauma?

What if they cross our boundaries and teach us not to listen to ourselves?

Bethany Webster began blogging in 2013 about the Mother Wound and quickly experienced a worldwide demand for her work. Though blending research on intergenerational trauma, feminist history, and psychology with her own personal story, Bethany’s work is the result of decades of research and her own journey of healing.

She is a writer, international speaker, and transformational coach around the world sharing her growing body of work that is raising the standard of women’s leadership and personal development.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What is the Mother Wound?
  • How does shame, guilt, and fear play a role?
  • What does the Mother Wound look like for women?
  • Why is it important to heal it?
  • What happens in our lives when we are willing to heal?
