Hey there!

I’m Tiffany Green.

I’m a Carolina girl and digital creator/blogger who believes in God and has no problems eating apple pie for breakfast. When I’m not chasing a busy toddler, I’m creating content to support women who are preparing for birth and life with a new baby. If that’s you, congrats. Download your free Pregnancy Roadmap.

I haven’t always been interested in supporting pregnant women and new moms. In fact, there was a time when I didn’t want to be a mom (gasp). It’s true. 

 

Productivity, Embrace the woman you become in motherhood

I almost missed out on being a mom to this supernova.

 

Best tips for toddler travel the green way

I almost missed out on watching the man I love become an amazing father.

 

You see…

 

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. 

    • I birthed an eight-pound baby with no medical interventions. 
    • I quit my job as a newborn screening chemist to be a stay-at-home-mom. 
    • I started this little blog that has bloomed into an online business. You can start a business blog too.
    • I had a miscarriage. 
    • I fell in and out of love with my body several times. 
    • I’ve questioned my parenting decisions. 
    • I removed dairy from my diet.
    • I’ve re-assessed what it means to be a wife and partner.
    • I’ve learned to thank myself for all the thankless roles we moms assume.

 

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.

Thinking about you
  • I created this platform to encourage you to advocate for yourself at every stage of motherhood. 
    • If you are struggling with infertility – seek answers.
    • If you are pregnant – pursue the best pregnancy and birthing experience that is available to you – even if you have fears. I created Pregnant and Unafraid to help you out.
    • If you know loss – give yourself the space and time you need. Forgive the people who have no idea what to say during your difficult time. I shared my miscarriage story here. It was heart-breaking but writing about it helped me tremendously.
    • If you are a new mom – know that your struggles will not last always and life isn’t over (as we’re told). You got this. Check out the free Postpartum Roadmap for some new moms tips.

 

Here’s the thing, most of us are wingin’ it – just like you. 😉 Is your mind blown? 

 

There is no textbook or class that will solve all your problems (they help); 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!

FAQS

What is your birth philosophy?

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. 

 

What was your birth experience?

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.

 

Why blog about pregnancy and motherhood?

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).

 

What has been the most challenging part of becoming a parent?

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.

 

What is the most exciting part of parenting?

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. 

 

Why the name Damn Good Mom?

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!

    Hey also another mom blogger. Love how your site looks. Tried to find your email. There are a few things I noticed. Your pregnancy binder the payment system your using is not up or working. Also some of the blog posts say write in the comments but the comments are off. And on your contact page the form is only text and is not showing. Thought I would let you know, because you’ve obviously worked really hard on this blog. By the way I bookmarked your site. Looking forward to reading more posts.
