The next Mothehood Clarity Course will begin in early May 2023.
You may feel hopelessly stuck when it comes to deciding whether or not to become a parent...

You’re not alone.  

Be guided step-by-step through Ann’s proven method deepened through meditations, mentorship, and live teachings to uncover your inner truth and discover what’s right for you.

As you think deeply about whether to become a mother, it can be hard to figure out what you actually want — especially when there are so many voices telling you what you should want.

Do you and your partner have different opinions about whether to become parents?

Do you wonder what your life and career would look like with a family — and whether you can really “have it all”?

Perhaps deep down, you’re not sure whether you could be the kind of mother you’d want to be.

Or maybe everyone says you’d be a great mom, so you think you should become one, even if you “feel” it some days but not others...

Or you feel like time is running out — and you’re also worried you’ll make a decision, then regret it.

If you’re struggling with the question of motherhood, you likely wish there was a simple way to know what’s right for you...


With the many competing demands on your time and energy — and concerns about global issues, like the climate crisis, war, and energy prices — you may feel hopelessly stuck when it comes to deciding whether or not to become a parent...

And you’re not alone, because thousands of women face the same question, and similar experiences...

The good news is, there is a way to decide...

You can move from confusion to clarity because, once you’ve addressed your unresolved wounds (that almost everyone has), you do know what’s right for you.

Then you can reach your deepest truth — and believe in your power to act on it...

Join Ann Davidman, Parenthood Clarity Mentor, licensed marriage and family therapist, author and creator of The Motherhood Clarity Course, a 4-month program that helps women who are struggling with indecision about whether they want to become a mother.



The next Motherhood Clarity Course will begin in early May 2023.


As you’ll discover, there’s no correct answer — there’s only your answer.

Discover What's True For You

Through a variety of exercises, you’ll explore and come to understand the many feelings associated with making this decision — in a judgment-free, structured environment to help you determine the right choice for you.

Unconscious stories — or as Ann calls them, recordings — can get in the way of your decision-making process. While everyone’s journey is a little different, she’s found that four months is the realistic amount of time needed to tease out those recordings and begin to transform them.

No matter how many years you’ve spent feeling stuck, how complicated your life feels right now, or how dysfunctional your childhood was — this step-by-step program will guide you to the clarity you desire and deserve.

It’s for women who long to make a decision they feel good about, once and for all. It’s also for women who’ve already decided to become a mother, but want to feel more solid about their decision.

It’s also for you if you’re struggling to conceive, considering adoption, or becoming a part-time parent, co-parent, or stepparent. Women who are single, partnered, married, and of any age, culture, or sexual orientation will find direction, comfort, and clarity in this course.

With Ann as your guide, you’ll begin to heal past relationships (even without the involvement of the other person) and rewrite your experience of the past so you can move forward with a new future.

You’ll get real about the cultural fantasies and fears we’ve all been indoctrinated with, that drive your understanding of what it might be like to have children or remain childfree.

What You’ll Discover Over These Four Months of LIVE Interactive Teaching and Q&A Sessions

In this 4-month transformational course, Ann Davidman will guide you, step-by-step, to arrive at the confident clarity you desire and deserve.

Ann has been helping women find their personal clarity since 1991, and has found that it takes about 4 months to delve into a comprehensive, in-depth exploration of the deep-rooted pressures and expectations associated with motherhood.

Receive Four Months of Supportive, Expert Guidance With Ann to Discover if Motherhood Is for You


The Motherhood Clarity Course™ is based on the original groundbreaking program, Motherhood — Is It For Me? co-created in 1991 by Ann Davidman and Denise L. Carlini. This program later became a book. Now Ann will share the tenants of this book in an interactive group course format, so you can experience all its wisdom as you arrive at the best decision for yourself.

Ann has spent countless hours listening to the tears and heartache of women who, just like you, want to know they’re not broken — and who long for guidance toward answering their most life-defining question.

These women were not broken, and neither are you. With compassion and understanding, Ann will help you end the cycle of motherhood indecision and move into a state of inner clarity...

You’ll feel empowered to confidently and lovingly say goodbye to what will never be, as you say hello to your future.


Psychotherapists Ann Davidman and Denise L. Carlini created the program, Motherhood — Is It For Me? in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1991 to provide a resource to women experiencing ambivalence about motherhood. So often, these women felt shame or judged about their indecision. Ann and Denise created support groups that allowed women to explore the issue free of judgment and discover their heart’s desire about whether they wanted to become mothers or live a childfree life. Ann and Denise led the groups together for 10 years.

In 2000, Ann Davidman began helping individual women and men find clarity about whether they wanted to be parents through her private psychotherapy practice in the San Francisco Bay area. She now offers her Motherhood Clarity Course™ and Fatherhood Clarity Course™ to individuals and groups in her online course.

Ann Davidman, MFT, is a licensed marriage and family therapist, Parenthood Clarity Mentor and author. She received her graduate degree from San Francisco State University and is a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT). You can read more about Ann here.
