I’m a ‘new-ish’ mom to my two-year-old daughter and I never thought parenting would be so damn hard, but motherhood truly is a mother.

Welcome to Motherhood is a Mother, Hi! My name is Jen Murphy.

Motherhood is a Mother is a parenting and marriage blog for tired parents who don’t have time to read the books.

My pregnancy and postpartum experience were basically a constant google search. I was reading all of the books, articles, and newsletters I could to understand what was happening to my body and with my baby. I’m a natural-born researcher (thanks, anxiety), and I love to read. Yes, basically, I’m a huge nerd. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work and a Master’s in Public Administration, so understanding and researching people have always been my focus. I’m really excited to talk about topics that not only were relevant to me in my experience as a newly pregnant person/first-time mom, but I hope will be relevant to you too. So here goes!

Hi, I’m Jen! Welcome to Motherhood is a Mother!

Jen Murphy is doing the research so you don’t have to. As a working mom to a toddler, Jen knows all too well the stresses of organizing a family, navigating moods, and making decisions (both big and small). She is doing her homework (and yours) to help dive into questions like “Am I doing good enough?” “Are we having fun yet?” “Dating and parenting, is it possible to do both?” Meanwhile, she is reading the parenting books and researching trends that are relevant to families today, all while hoping to bring factual data and levity to listeners.
