Mother-centered Career Coaching

Step into a new mindset that fits your career aspirations perfectly, with motherhood built right in.

Running endlessly on the hamster wheel of life wasn’t exactly what you had in mind when you set out to build a career and raise a family at the same time, was it?

You’ve already spent what feels like forever attempting to do it all when what you really want is to find work/life balance.

Get ready to say goodbye to exhaustion, overwhelm, and perfectionism and say hello to a new definition of success and fulfilment in your life.

It’s time to find clarity and direction in your career so you can pursue your ambitions while showing up as the kind of mother you desire to be without burning out at the same time. 

Andrea from Made to mother Co

You’ve spent your whole career climbing the corporate ladder, trying to break the glass ceiling, and pushing yourself to your fullest potential. And then – bam! You became a mother.  And your world flipped upside down because all of a sudden, that career you had worked so hard for, or that position that was your dream job, no longer seems to be as perfect or as fulfilling as it once was now that you’re also trying to fit family life into that work/life dynamic.  Here’s the thing:

E

You’re busy trying to coordinate a household and wrangle your kids, while also attempting to pursue your own ambitions.  It’s driving you crazy.

E

You want to do something that lights you up outside of being a mother, but you also want to be present in your child’s life.  It’s making you question yourself and your career decisions.

E

You want to be taken seriously at work, but it’s exhausting pretending like you’re only an employee and not also a mother struggling to make it all work.  You feel like you’re drowning. 

E

You’re used to defining yourself by your work, or your title, or your profession.  But, now that you’re also a mother, you’re struggling to unite the two identities and find balance in your life.  You’re not sure who you are anymore. 

“The 2021 “Women in the Workplace” report from McKinsey & Company and LeanIn.org chronicles an alarming spike in the burnout rate of women, with forty-two percent reporting feeling pushed to the brink “often” or “almost always”.”

What if you could stop trying to do it all, all of the time? 

What if you could learn to trust yourself and this season of your life? Imagine if  you could show up every day as the ambitious woman and present mother you aspire to be without feeling overwhelmed or stressed about making the right decisions.

That’s the power of using motherhood as an opportunity for self-discovery and growth in your career. 

I’m not your typical career coach.  I won’t just help you set out your career goals while ignoring your personal values and the reality of the season of motherhood you’re in right now.  Becoming a mother can be a shock to your identity as a career-focused woman.  Whether it’s planning to go on maternity leave, deciding to go back to work outside of the home, wanting to stay home with your child, or forging a new career path, a promotion, or transitioning to part-time work or starting your own side hustle, figuring out what you want out of your life and motherhood can be overwhelming.  

What I provide is  mother-centered career coaching.  My role as your coach is to help you uncover your career values and navigate the modern workplace within a mother-centered lens.  This means: I help you get clear on the season of motherhood you’re in right now so that you can understand what you really want out of your career and show you how to make it a reality.

One to One Coaching with Andrea

A mother-centered approach

This is customized coaching for women who are ready to ditch the overwhelm, exhaustion, and perfectionism in order to create success and fulfilment at home and at work.  We do this through self-reflection, aligning expectations and goals, and taking deliberate action.  

This coaching is a unique combination of life, mindset, career and matrescence coaching for the woman who loves achieving goals, yet feels like something is missing and is ready to dive deep into self-discovery mode so she can figure out what she really wants out of life.

Here’s what clients shared about their coaching experience

“I am currently pregnant with my first child and did not realise how many thoughts I would have about transitioning into motherhood. The biggest one was how I was going to stay me whilst also being a good mother. Andrea gave me practical tips and tricks to navigate this transitional minefield and I recommend working with her to all women at all stages of their pregnancy.”

Here’s what clients shared about their coaching experience

“Andrea’s coaching is a must for every woman on their motherhood journey. I am so thankful to Andrea for giving me the language, insights and the tools I didn’t know I needed to navigate this transformative time in my life.”

Emily

Here’s what clients shared about their coaching experience

“Andrea is an excellent coach. She truly goes above and beyond and I really looked forward to our time together. From the coaching sessions I got excellent clarity on how I can maximise LinkedIn for my small business.  Most importantly, she coached me through creating my personal and business strategy on LinkedIn and provided many actionable takeaways.  My confidence with LinkedIn has improved tremendously and I have documentation to refer back to. I look forward to an ongoing relationship with Andrea as my business grows.”

Chrissy

Here’s what clients shared about their coaching experience

“Learning about matrescence with Andrea showed me the importance of creating space and time for myself to transition into motherhood. She taught me the value of acceptance, particularly accepting those things I cannot perfect through research and practice. Andrea showed me that to be a mum is to unabashedly live your truth, whatever that truth may look like.”

Sarah

Here’s what clients shared about their coaching experience

“Andrea has helped me see the path to my decisions so clearly. She asks questions and frames the situation in a light that empowers me to trust in my own instinct. Her intuitive decision making framework has helped me take stressful situations with family and make them digestible. The coaching Andrea offers is so valuable because it breaks down the root of what is causing the stress, helping you understand for yourself what it is you actually need and want for your motherhood journey.”

Here’s what clients shared about their coaching experience

Working with Andrea 1:1 helped me learn about who I was since becoming a mother, and allowed me space to figure out what I actually wanted from my career.  Talking with her about carving out specific time to reconnect with who I was before a mom also tied in to my thoughts about the type of job I wanted to take on.  She helped me build my confidence in my own skill set and see all the ways I could add value to a company. Getting my brag bank started was a huge help! After working with Andrea, I felt more confident about what I wanted in a career and how that would be reflected in and shaped by my own family values and needs.

Ceire

Here’s what clients shared about their coaching experience

“I have worked with Andrea for years and I consider myself fortunate to have Andrea as a coach, mentor and now friend.  Andrea has a natural way of thoughtfully understanding every situation, asking the right questions and helping you find a mutually beneficial solution. She has always impressed me with her relatability, empathy and humor. She’s the best of the best and I couldn’t recommend her skills as a Career Coach more.”

Amanda

Here’s what clients shared about their coaching experience

“I owe my professional success to Andrea Bombino’s mentorship and guidance. I came into the corporate world as a green 22 year old. Through leading by example, honest feedback, and being an active listener, Andrea molded me into a titan of business. Since her mentorship, I have secured and negotiated job offers at incredible companies like JP Morgan Chase, WeWork, Twitter, and Instacart. Not a day goes by where something Andrea taught me is not used. I often think of what my life would look like without having met and worked with Andrea, and I can honestly say I would not be where I am today.”

Ashley

Here’s what clients shared about their coaching experience

“I started working with Andrea 5 years ago when I was fresh in a new role and industry. Learning from Andrea has empowered me to move from ‘I wish’ to ‘I am’. 

Andrea has undoubtedly been a major influence as a mentor and coach throughout my career (and personal challenges), yet more important is that she is always on the journey with me; she is invested in all the little steps along the way to greatness. 

There is no universal measure of success, but Andrea has led with vulnerability, always accommodating my unique values, personality and comfort levels to help me find my own versions of fulfillment and achievement.”

QUESTIONS BEFORE YOU COMMIT?

Frequently Asked Questions

Isn’t it normal to feel overwhelmed by motherhood or not know what direction I want my career to take?

It is absolutely normal to feel overwhelmed by motherhood (at times) and to seek clarity with your career goals.  So many women think they signed up for a life of sacrifice and putting others first when they became a mother, and struggle to make work and family life work for them.   If you’re feeling overwhelmed, under-appreciated, or uncertain of the identity changes you’re experiencing more often than not, then it’s time to make a change.  You do not need to sacrifice your own well being and happiness just because you’re a mother or just because you you “should” be happy with the role or career you’re in.  Through coaching, you can learn more about yourself, what you value at home and in a career, and use specific tools to navigate the path ahead of you with ease and understanding.   

I'm worried about investing time and money in coaching when I'm already so busy.

My goal is to help you redefine what success looks like in motherhood and understand your values so that you can pivot your life and career whenever you want.  I can promise you that the skills you will learn during our time together, coupled with what you will learn about yourself, will make the financial and time investment worth it. 

What is the benefit of a 3 month commitment?

As your coach, my goal is to help you achieve your desired outcome.  In order to do that, we need time to create a true partnership based on support and accountability. Change is never linear, so you will experience moments of uncertainty at times. My role is to support you through the growth, and help hold you accountable, especially when it gets tough.  Three months of working together really gives you the time and opportunity you need in order for to really level up you career, change your mindset and create lasting change.

I'm located outside of the US - can we still work together?

Yes! I work with women all over the world.  All coaching sessions are held virtually via Zoom, and support in between sessions is via Voxer – a voice and text messaging app.  A variety of days and times are available per week to cater to a range of time zones.  If there are no times in my calendar that are suitable for you, please email me and include a request for a particular time: andrea@madetomotherco.com

Outside of the 1 hour coaching sessions, how much time will I need to commit to this process?

You will be given customised activities to complete after every session so that you can start implementing what you’ve just learned.  Sometimes these activities will take 15-20 minutes to complete.  Other times you may want to spend twice as much time thinking about your responses, or considering different outcomes for the questions I’ve asked.  These agreed actions will keep you moving forward and help hold you accountable to progressing in between sessions.  As long as you are willing to be fully present in our sessions and committed to moving forward, I promise that these activities will be something you’ll actually look forward to completing.
