As you think deeply about whether to become a parent, it can be hard to figure out what you actually 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 parent you’d want to be.

Or maybe you feel that “you’re supposed to” want to become a

parent or it’s what others expect from you…

Or you feel like you have to decide right now — and you’re worried you’ll make a decision, then regret it.

Not being able to decide whether you want to be a parent is more complex than your external circumstances.

The good news is, there is a way to decide

You’re invited to receive private mentorship from Ann Davidman, Parenthood Clarity™ Mentor, licensed marriage and family therapist, and creator of The Parenthood Clarity™ Courses, in-depth programs that helps those who are struggling with indecision about whether they want to become a parent.

As Ann guides you during one-on-one sessions, you can move from confusion to clarity because, once you’ve addressed your unhealed wounds (that almost everyone has), you do know what’s right for you.

You just have to find a way to reach your deepest truth — then believe in your power to act on it…

As Ann customizes every teaching just for you, you’ll discover that there's no correct answer — there's only your answer.


Discover What's True For You

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 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 — customized program will guide you to the clarity you desire and deserve.

This unique program is for you if you long to make a decision you feel good

about, once and for all — or you want to feel more solid about the decision you’ve already made.

With Ann as your mentor, 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.

The Parenthood Clarity™ Course

The Parenthood 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 people who, just like you, want to know they’re not broken — and who long for guidance toward answering their most life-defining question.

They weren't broken, and neither are you. With compassion and understanding, Ann will help you end the cycle of 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.

Meet Ann

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 those experiencing ambivalence about parenthood. So often, they felt shame or judged about their indecision. Ann and Denise created support groups to explore the issue free of judgment and discover their heart's desire about whether they wanted to become parents 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.
