Abstract

Women often face challenges when balancing academic and familial responsibilities (Gilbert,; Trepal & Stinchfield,). This phenomenological study explored women's (N = 10) experiences of becoming mothers during a doctoral program in counseling. The results highlight the importance of mentorship and other protective factors associated with a successful transition from student to mother.
