Show Notes

In this episode of ‘Mothering From Within,’ I explore the unrealistic expectations set by societal infant stories on motherhood and infant care. 

By reflecting on the narratives around sleep, feeding, independence, and the ideal of a ‘good baby,’ this episode aims to dismantle pressures towards perfection in motherhood. 

I discuss the challenges of aligning with these expectations and encourage moms to trust their instincts, embrace their unique journey, and rewrite their own stories of motherhood with authenticity and grace.
