The No Bullshit busy city Mom Coaching Call Series 








Mom's UP! Spring Series is a series of free coaching calls. You can sign up for one, or you can sign up for all. Free, real and fabulously UPlifting! 

We know what life is like as a D.C. Mom!


You’re busy, always on the go with a non stop family schedule.

No time to breathe...

No time to find yourSELF again…

That woman you were before you got swept away into the whirlwind of D.C. motherhood! Where is she?

Where is the joy in these years that are supposed to be made up of sacred memories? Of quality moments?

If any of these questions resonate, you are in the right place.



We - Pleasance Silicki and Alexandra Hughes - are two D.C. area Moms who know all about being Moms on autopilot, because we were in it too long and too deep.

But not anymore!

After many books, courses, coaches and workshops, we both redesigned our lives and ways of BEing to lift ourselves up and off the hamster wheel.

And we are passionate about helping other D.C. Moms to do the same!

We now know that being a Mom doesn’t have to feel stressful and exhausting. 

You can feel light and in love with the experience.



Join us for one or all of our Mom's UP! coaching calls, where we will get honest and real challenges that Mom's face in their daily grind. This is a no bullshit series of conversations where real Moms talk about real life and really practical strategies to help you create family relationships and lives you LOVE and enJOY.

Just leave your name and email in the box below to register. If you can't make the call LIVE, you will get the recording via email (but of course you'll get more out of it if you're there!)"
