There Goes the Motherhood is a reality TV series released by ITV Be in 2016. It follows the lives of six different mothers living in Los Angeles, as they navigate the challenges and triumphs of modern parenthood. The show focuses on their journeys as they struggle to balance their roles as moms, wives, and businesswomen while dealing with various personal and professional dilemmas.

Each episode features the mom's candid discussions about their experiences with raising children and their own relationships with their mothers in a group therapy session led by parenting expert and author, Jill Spivack. They open up about their insecurities, personal struggles, and their efforts to be good mothers while juggling their professional lives.

Throughout the series, the moms react to each other's stories and provide advice where necessary, offering support and encouragement with the aim of forming a meaningful bond whilst navigating the complexities of motherhood. Audiences experience how they deal with their daily challenges, from coping with a colicky newborn, a child discovering self-expression through hair color, or the driving lessons of a teenager.

The six mothers featured on the show are Beth Bowen, Bethenny Frankel, Jen Bush, Leah Forester, Stefanie Fair, and Alisa Starler. Beth Bowen, the "team mom," is a mother of three and wife to an NFL player, who is known for hosting large playdates. Bethenny Frankel is a popular businesswoman and reality television star, who shares custody of her daughter with her ex-husband, whilst also running a successful cocktail empire. Jen Bush is a working mom with a son and wife to a basketball coach. Leah Forester is a Jewish mother and a former model, who has found true love with her husband and is expecting a child. Stefanie Fair is a single mom to two sons and is navigating the dating world, whilst also building a successful career as a comic book artist. Lastly, Alisa Starler is a working mother with three boys, who is considering having another child despite her husband's reluctance.

There Goes the Motherhood offers a unique perspective on motherhood, one that is raw, honest, and relatable. Viewers are shown that mothers, regardless of their social status and backgrounds, still face many of the same challenges when it comes to raising their children. The showcase and candid conversations put together by Jill, encourage the mothers to be more honest and forthcoming about the real aspects of being a mother, shedding light on multiple viewpoints and enables viewers to empathize and relate to their experiences.

From the sleepless nights to maintaining a healthy relationship with their spouse, the show dives deep into the issues affecting the modern mother and how they cope with them. It is not all about the drama of raising children though, as we get a glimpse into the aspirations, passions, and dreams of each mother, adding an extra layer of depth to the show.
