It’s time to learn about the Mother Wound and how it impacts you.

Tired of peacekeeping, making yourself small to appease others, or putting yourself and your dreams last? Do you have a challenging relationship with your mother? Do you want to dismantle patriarchy but don’t know where to start?

What You'll Learn

This e-book is a simple and profound introduction to the Mother Wound.

Prepare for big sighs of relief, Aha moments, illumination of how your patterns hold you back, and expansion into your truth-telling, abundant self.

Have you ever had.... ?


A sense that there’s something wrong with you


A fear of failure or disapproval holding you back from your dreams


Weak boundaries and an unclear sense of who you are


A feeling of being unworthy or incapable of creating what you truly desire


A sense that it’s not safe enough to take up space and voice your truth


A compulsion to not “rock the boat”


Self-sabotage when you get close to a breakthrough


A feeling of waiting for your mother’s permission or approval

If you have, you are not alone and you are not “crazy.” It is natural to feel overwhelmed by the systemic challenges women face in a patriarchal culture, especially if you inherited painful patterns from your mom. When you heal the Mother Wound, you work to heal yourself, your family, and the world. Ultimately, it’s not about our mothers in the end, but about learning how to embrace ourselves and our gifts without shame.

What women are saying...

“This is the sophisticated feminine wisdom education I wished I could have bathed my soul in 20 years ago! Beyond the many layers of resistance I encountered, I found indescribable relief that followed the completion of this deeply satiating work. Working with Bethany has been like a Truth tuning-fork, helping to replace the aching dissonance of distorted love, with so much clarity and affirmation in my Being. Bethany, thank you deeply for your courageous and brilliant work, the impact of which I know continues to heal both directions of my Mother-line.”

— J.J.

"I feel so much freer, in my life in general and in particular with my Mom, my partner, and my closest friends. This has transformed all of my relationships, especially the one I have with myself. This phrase was new and hardly believable when I first heard Bethany say it “You are not beholden to anyone”.  Really?? Can that really be true? Now I absolutely know that it is. Ahhhhhh…what a relief. I now know how to give myself what I missed out on as a child. I can mother myself, and that is a beautiful gift. Thank you, Bethany, my life has truly transformed.”

— Tammy H.

“I can’t describe the impact discovering you and your work has had on my life. I also can’t thank you enough for all the work you have done to bring the Mother Wound to light. I am so grateful to have found you and your work. It has transformed me. It has been the missing piece to fully understanding a pain I could never quite put my finger on but was always there. It has also helped me understand my mother, my grandmother and my great grandmother and I can clearly see how the Mother Wound has been passed down from one generation to the next. Amazing insights, healing, growth, and love."

— Donna S.

About Bethany Webster

Bethany started a blog in 2013 that was focused on defining the "Mother Wound" and explaining its key role in women's empowerment. Although writers such as Adrienne Rich and Christiane Northrup have touched on the Mother Wound, Bethany Webster is the first to define exactly what the Mother Wound is and why it remains a universal experience of women the world over.

Bethany's work fills a crucial gap in our understanding of women’s psychology and empowerment by comprehensively defining the Mother Wound, how it manifests in women's lives and providing a roadmap to a solution with her seven steps to healing the Mother Wound, available in her online course and coaching program. Blending cutting-edge research on intergenerational trauma, feminist theory, and psychology with her own personal story, Bethany's body of work is the result of decades of her own research and her personal journey of healing.
