-- Providence, Rhode Island
– Tis’ the season for giving and a new website, www.bornreadybaby.com, wants moms to do just that – give to themselves. The Born Ready site challenges the old adage that a good mother must put her child first. Instead, the site advocates that a mother focus on her own happiness, emotional health, and fulfillment in order to give her child a priceless gift: the gift of her best self.
“I want women to understand that just because they’re a mom or a mom-to-be, it doesn’t mean they have to stop focusing on their own happiness” said Alicia Kamm, founder of Born Ready Baby. Kamm continued, “We have a responsibility to our children to lead by example instead of pushing them to attain our own unrealized goals. When we elevate our life, we prove to our child that the impossible is possible, challenges are conquerable, and that they too can cultivate the life they desire – just like mom did.”
Born Ready isn’t advocating that moms treat themselves to a shopping spree or a manicure. As Kamm explains: “It’s all about taking steps to live the life you want to live and to lead by example. The site features stories of moms who abandoned their passion in order to raise children only to end up doing both, harmoniously. Other moms have suffered a loss but challenged themselves to work through it in a healthy, positive way. Some mothers left a thriving career to be a work at home mom or start a business. The stories are so diverse yet they all involve taking the initiative to elevate your life and in turn, catapulting the life of your child.”
Kamm also provides an intimate account of her own personal challenges and chronicles her continuous quest for self-improvement.
Born Ready is equally passionate about promoting the moms brave enough to blog about their personal challenges on the website. Kamm states: “This is a win-win for moms courageous enough to talk about their challenges. Not only do they have the opportunity to support and inspire other moms but they also have the opportunity to promote themselves or their brand or cause.” To find out more about Born Ready Baby, check out the website: www.bornreadybaby.com.
