“My values are built on the foundation of nurturing, empowering and educating women.” Cecile Edwards, M.ED
Founder of MommyEvolve Cecile Edwards, M.ED is certified in maternal mental health, mindfulness and life coach, reiki master and postpartum doula
Cecile began engaging mothers in New Jersey around the conversation of mental health, generational wellness, holistic healing and postpartum care. Through these conversations she developed an interest in metaphysics, history and international studies. Cecile went on to travel globally where she educates perinatal and postpartum women in the use of alternative healing and powerful tools to improve their lives while also mentoring them in all stages of self-improvement and mental wellness. Cecile is an intuitive, healer and womanist who enjoys farming and travel with her daughter.

While at work one day in 2014 I suffered a major panic attack. I could say it came from nowhere, but the truth is I was running on empty for YEARS, not caring for my mind, emotions and spirit. I worked 3 emotionally draining jobs and was a single parent. My relationship with the divine was reactive so that when I needed something I asked instead of consistently practicing gratitude and living by my soul’s truth. I felt stuck and helpless as a woman and mother because I was not taking responsibility for my life by directing it, but instead allowing the circumstances of what others wanted for me to consume me. This way of being prior to motherhood consumed me even more deeply as a mother.
Cecile Edwards, founder and creative director grew into her gifts of guiding individuals and families through their evolutionary process due to her personal success through her own process of evolution (which is a continuous process). The MommyEvolve Methods are unique and impactful and will reunite you with your essence, your inner child that may have been lost through all of the “lessons” you’ve learned through the years. MommyEvolve assists mothers to EVOLVE THEIR INNER MOTHER and access their divine inner child to live the lives they deserve.
All of the guilt and shame I carried for not meeting societal standards came out in my parenting. The mom guilt would further amplify the existing emotions resulting in a cycle of self-abuse manifested as over/under working, over/under eating, over/under exercising, and self-judgment.
I was exhausted and that panic attack was my spirit screaming for something to change.
Freeing myself meant facing the unexamined existence which included generational wounds, societal expectations and emotional pain. I reconnected with my hurt inner child, who was consistently told she had to be skinnier, lighter, more proper, dress a certain way in order to be appealing, successful and happy. Healing that little girl within was a key part of releasing the baggage so I could see myself clearly.
Though the process is ongoing, I’ve learned powerful lessons about motherhood and evolving from within.
MommyEvolve was born during this time. Following many conversations with other women, I realized far too many have similar experiences without an outlet to express our emotions. So many of us have fallen into the societal trappings of “push through” and “be strong.” What was missing was clarity in the definitions of these statements. Being strong and pushing through meant changing the habits, attitudes and unlearning the self-sacrificing behaviors that drained my existence as a mother and woman.
To evolve you must go through the process of freeing yourself by changing core beliefs. It is not an easy task – but very worth it! “The beauty is that I knew there was more, and I was always willing to access my higher self-irrespective of what tradition, society and family tried to tell me about what they thought I should be, do and have.” – Cecile Edwards
As an educator, I enjoy helping people uncover and achieve their desires using the tools best suited for their needs. I do this by asking self-discovering questions that show your ultimate sovereignty.
“No longer do I operate in a state of stress and anger.”
“I now live in an empowered state, commanding my household with peace and ease while manifesting my goals and desires.”
