Show Notes

This episode is a heart-to-heart and real talk about this whole idea of the “perfect mother.” 

More than half of parents feel that they are failing in their first few years of parenthood. And our society has so many “rules” and things they deem right and wrong, so it is hard not to feel like you are failing if you aren’t meeting those things. You feel like you are failing when you stress about every little decision whether it is around feeding or carrying for the tiny, helpless human in front of you.

No wonder we are stressed, overwhelmed, always feeling like we are failing and why exorbitant rates of PMADs in our culture. 

The thing is, this “perfect mother” doesn’t really exist.

Tune in for a shift in perspective and a big metaphorical hug!
