Motherhood pt. 2

THERE ARE A MYRIAD OF EMOTIONS AND CHALLENGES THAT ACCOMPANY MOTHERHOOD. WHETHER YOU’RE A SOON-TO-BE MOM, A NEW MOTHER ADJUSTING TO THIS BEAUTIFUL CHAOS, OR A SEASONED PARENT LOOKING FOR RELATABLE EXPERIENCES, THIS EPISODE IS FOR YOU.

WE BELIEVE THAT BY SHARING OUR STORIES AND EXPERIENCES, WE CAN FOSTER A SENSE OF COMMUNITY, SUPPORT, AND UNDERSTANDING, EMPOWERING EACH OTHER TO EMBRACE THE JOURNEY OF MOTHERHOOD WITH CONFIDENCE AND GRACE.

LAST WEEK, IN PART 1 OF OUR CONVERSATION ON MOTHERHOOD, WE LEFT OFF BY TALKING ABOUT FINDING BALANCE AS A MOM. WE WILL CONTINUE WITH THIS TOPIC AND EVERYTHING FROM DECIDING TO HAVE OTHER CHILDREN TO OUR PREGNANCY AND BIRTH STORIES.

DISCLAIMER: WE WILL BE CANDIDLY DISCUSSING PREGNANCY AND PREGNANCY LOSS. SHOULD ANY OF THESE THINGS BE TRIGGERING TO YOU AT THIS TIME, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SIT THIS EPISODE OUT.
