Embracing Motherhood : Challenges and Struggles of Motherhood
Play • 27 min

Today's episode is all about embracing motherhood and the challenges and struggles that come along with Motherhood!

We are talking about the challenges and struggles of motherhood. You already hear all about the joys and wonderful parts of motherhood. You are bombarded with it every time you scroll through social media or turn on your tv. But no one really talks about the hard parts of motherhood - the times you feel lost in motherhood. That's because it can be filled with so much shame. But by not talking about the difficulties in motherhood, we are just creating more shame. 

Motherhood is tough. Motherhood is overwhelming. And motherhood is lonely enough as it is. We don't need to make it more lonely by keeping all of this bottled up. Let's start sharing our real experiences in motherhood - the good and the bad.

Join me in this vulnerable and raw conversation about motherhood.

We are going to talk about:

  • What motherhood feels like
  • Losing yourself in motherhood
  • Society's expectations of women and mothers
  • Working mom problems
  • Stay-at-home mom problems
  • The invisible work of mothers
  • Mom's mental load and emotional labor
  • Maternal ambivalence
  • Asking for help in motherhood
  • How to overcome mom guilt
  • How motherhood changes you
  • What motherhood teaches you
  • And so much more!
