I’m Tiffany Green.
When I’m not chasing a busy toddler, I’m creating content and resources to support pregnant women and moms so that new mom life is filled with less overwhelm more adventure.
I haven’t always been interested in supporting pregnant women and moms. In fact, there was a time when I didn’t want to be a mom (gasp). It’s true.
I almost missed out on being a mom to this supernova.
I almost missed out on watching the man I love become an amazing father.
When I was sixteen I stood on the outside of my sister’s hospital room and listened as she gave birth to my stillborn nephew. It was my first experience with pregnancy and it sucked!
For years after that experience, I declared I’d never have a child and I came up with several valid reasons but honestly…I was afraid:
-I was afraid of loss.
-I was afraid of not being enough.
-I was afraid my life goals would need to be diminished.
Thankfully, my heart opened and God had plans for my life bigger and better than the ones I planned for myself.
In 2017, I allowed myself to get pregnant and it led to a cascade of unlikely events.
Ultimately, I continue to create space to be new versions of myself and I invite other new moms to do the same.
I’m convinced that our lives as moms make us extraordinarily prepared to manage the unexpected triumphs and challenges of life.
Here’s the thing, most moms who you think have it all together (cough – curated social media feeds) are wingin’ it and experience challenges just like you. Is your mind blown?
There is no textbook or class that will parenting easy; the real mvp moms just keep showing up and putting their best foot forward. Even in the midst of pain, sleep deprivation, sad days, and love lost… our children will see us as their moms and that matters more than everything. Just keep showing up as your best self.
You are enough! You are worthy! You have what it takes to be a Damn Good Mom!

Birth is an unforgettable experience. Women should be given the opportunity to be educated and to use their knowledge to make informed decisions that support the best possible outcome for their child. I respect every woman’s right to decide how they want to experience their birth, as long as the safety and health of the baby is the priority at all times.
I planned my pregnancy and prepared for birth intentionally and in the end, I had an intervention-free birth (no pain medications and no epidural) in a hospital setting. It was painful but empowering. I think every low-risk mama can prepare for a natural birth, if that is what she wants.
I write about pregnancy and motherhood because of the transformation that happened in my life when I decided to stop letting fear control my choices. I went after the family I wanted. I did it scared and I’m winning. I believe other women can too!
Motherhood is the greatest gift that I have been given and my goal with this site is to help one woman at a time know that pregnancy doesn’t need to be scary (with reliable information) and motherhood is an opportunity (your life isn’t over and you can still pursue your dreams).
The transition of leaving my job to become a stay-at-home-mom was challenging. It’s the hardest yet most rewarding experience I’ve ever had. I don’t take for granted the opportunity I have to stay home with my daughter but I’ve found that stay-at-home-mom life is an adjustment.
Watching what was once a mustard seed grow, learn, and thrive is an absolute joy. I watch my daughter and am constantly amazed that I grew her inside of me.
Also, my journey as a mom motivated me to create this amazing platform called Damn Good Mom where I get to be in community with other moms and build a home-based business. It’s crazy the life I never imagined is better than the one I planned for myself. God truly has a sense of humor.
I struggled to think of a name that captured exactly what I wanted this website to be, but I always wanted it to reflect my number one goal and the goal that most other moms have too. If you haven’t guessed yet, that goal is to be a Damn Good Mom. I know I’ll never be perfect but I can wake up each day and try to be the best mom I can be for my kiddo and you can too!
