Mothers Who Microdose


Motherhood is a catalyst like none other. It transforms the woman into a mother and her body into a powerful resource.

With all that output, a new mother needs all the support she can get. Physical, emotional, neurological, cognitive, all of the above.

Enter microdosing.

What is Microdosing?

Microdosing is the practice of consuming small amounts of psychedelic substances, such as psilocybin mushrooms or LSD, for their mood-related and cognitive benefits. 

Unlike traditional dosing, which can produce intense and hallucinogenic effects, microdosing involves taking doses that are too small to produce any noticeable psychoactive effects. 

Instead, microdosing is said to enhance creativity, focus, and mood, making it an attractive option for busy moms looking for a natural way to boost their productivity, balance out their moods, and enhance overall well-being.

Microdosing and Motherhood:

Microdosing can be a game-changer for moms who are struggling to balance their personal and professional lives. 

By taking small doses of psychedelics, moms can improve their focus, creativity, and mood, making it easier to tackle the challenges of motherhood. 

Here are some benefits of microdosing for moms:


  1. Increased Productivity

Microdosing can help moms stay focused and motivated, making it easier to tackle their to-do lists and accomplish their goals. Whether you’re working from home or running errands with your kids, microdosing can help you stay on track and get things done more efficiently.

  1. Improved Mood

Microdosing can help moms feel more relaxed and calm, reducing stress and anxiety. As a result, moms can enjoy their time with their children more and feel more present in the moment.

  1. Enhanced Creativity

Microdosing can help moms tap into their creative side, making it easier to come up with new ideas and solutions. Whether you’re looking for new ways to entertain your kids or brainstorming ideas for your business, microdosing can help you think outside the box and find inspiration.

  1. Better Sleep

Microdosing can help moms sleep better at night, reducing fatigue and increasing energy levels. As a result, moms can feel more refreshed and rejuvenated, making it easier to tackle the challenges of motherhood.

  1. Increased Empathy and Connection

Microdosing can help moms feel more connected to their children and partners, increasing empathy and understanding. As a result, moms can build stronger and more meaningful relationships with their loved ones.

Microdosing is not a magic solution to all of your problems, but it can be a helpful tool for moms who are looking for a natural way to boost their productivity and well-being. 

Microdosing Moms Resources

By taking small doses of psychedelics, moms can improve their focus, creativity, and mood, making it easier to balance their personal and professional lives.

However, it’s important to remember that microdosing is not for everyone, and it’s essential to do your research and consult with a healthcare professional before trying it.

  • My baby is almost 1 year old and I’m planning to start microdosing again soon. Especially for the sense of empathy and connection that i feel when i microdose. I’ve had to work a fair amount and I’m looking forward to spending some down time in nature, seeing the world through her eyes of wonder.

  • I wish I could find mushrooms earlier. I am mother of three daughters, I separated with their father 7 years ago. My life has been incredibly hard, to raise them and working in two jobs. I think I have been exhausted all the time and could not be present enough to them. Too much nagging and raging. Now two of them are grown-ups and are struggling with their mental health. Microdosing has give me more perspective and inner peace, I think I have more to give now as a mother.

      This is wonderful to hear. So glad that your cup is fuller and you are able to show up in the ways you want to.

      Congratulations on all the hard work you’ve done on yourself for your own sake and for the sake of your children.

      Well done!
