Motherhood to Otherhood introduces Unpregnancy, a life-coaching model that borrows its strength and lessons from pregnancy  (the same way others speak in sports metaphors: “Go for it!”  and “Hit it outta the park.”)  Mothers have another – perhaps more resonant – experience in their lives to reflect on, and use as a pattern for how to achieve goals.  Unpregnancy lets you know what to expect when you’re “Unexpecting.”

Unpregnancy gives you back everything you learned in pregnancy in 9 lessons… that level of commitment, excitement, fantasy… that mix of self-sacrifice and self-care… the unswerving dedication.  Unpregnancy helps you apply those lessons to your life nowto reclaim the simple power, focus and motivation of one of your most profound life-experiences.  A method for change-management in your own home.  In three planned trimesters, t1/self, t2/love and t3/work, you can take 9 months now to effect a life makeover.  By any standard, pregnancy was an extreme makeover – Unpregnancy can be equally life-altering!  If you’re asking “Who am I?” and “What’s next for me?”  the answer is Unpregnancy.
