Discover the course that's right for you.
What is the Motherhood Clarity Course™?
The Motherhood Clarity Course is a 14-week program that helps women who are struggling with indecision about whether they want to become a mother. There's no right answer; there's only your answer. Ann Davidman, a Motherhood Clarity Mentor and licensed marriage and family therapist, has been helping women find their answer for more than 25 years. Through a variety of exercises, you'll explore and understand the many feelings associated with making this decision. Each course offers a safe, judgment-free, and structured environment to help you determine the right choice for you.
The length of the Motherhood Clarity Course -- 14 weeks -- is the amount of time it takes for a comprehensive and in-depth exploration of the feelings associated with motherhood. Unconscious recordings get in the way of your decision-making process; through years of experience, Ann has learned that a dedication to the 14-week process is what's necessary to tease out those recordings.
No matter how stuck you feel, how many years you’ve felt this way, how complicated your life is today, or how complicated your childhood was, this step-by-step program will guide you to the clarity you desire and deserve.

...the Motherhood Clarity Course is for you.
“I was so relieved to find this program. Intuitively, I knew I couldn't be the only one struggling with this decision, but after years of searching, I couldn't believe how hard it was to find resources to help guide me. Ann was wonderful to work with. I felt 100% supported, like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, from our very first conversation. The biggest revelation/blessing I received was the understanding that deep down, I really did know the answer. It was just that there were some blocks in my life that I had to work through in order to get to the clarity and wisdom that was already there. Ann helped me work through those blocks and a year later I can say I have the clarity I had so desperately been searching for. I highly recommend this program to anyone struggling with the decision to becoming a parent.”

"It helped me so much to have the clarity - both realizing how much I wanted to be a mother and knowing that I had the strength to face the challenges that parenting will bring - that I uncovered by doing the Motherhood - Is it for me? program. Ann provided such a safe space for me to work through my questions and doubts, and to learn that I wasn't alone in my journey. I'm thrilled to have come so far and to be certain about the choice I've made to become a mother."

Which course is right for me?
"I tell people that it's a personal decision. Some people like going at their own pace and some people want more of a hand holding experience. You have to decide what's best for you. I'm just so delighted to be able to offer 3 different options."
- Ann Davidman, Motherhood Clarity Mentor

"I went to Ann because I was at a crossroads - after 3 years of infertility, I was considering adoption, but was plagued with ambivalence the entire time about whether to parent at all. I was 50/50 and just couldn't decide. The program helped me get to clarity on what my truth really was - that I had wanted a child, but now in my mid-40s starting a family no longer felt like the right path. The program helped heal childhood wounds and identify my true desires amid a confusing array of societal expectations, hopes, fears, wants and needs. My decision feels right and good, and it has freed up tons of energy that was going into a daily see-saw over this. I am embracing my childfree life with husband, doggie, enjoying the many kids of our friends and living a fabulous life."

The Motherhood Clarity Course is based on the original Motherhood-Is it for me? ™ program, which I co-created with Denise L. Carlini in 1991. For countless hours during the last 25 years I've listened to the tears and heartache of women who, just like you, want to know they’re not broken and who want guidance toward answering their most life-defining question.
