EP26- Nap-trapped mama, by choice…

February 19, 2020

How do you leave a career that was everything to you? Dance- it was the love of your life and it was taken away. Listen to how my guest this week, Nova found a new purpose in being a mama, after what she thought was her only purpose was taken away from her.  

Her journey has been unconventional to this current western medicine culture, but it was hers to choose.  Everyone has their own way of handling motherhood. This ferocious mama, explains how she has decided to take on this journey of motherhood in a liberating, primal and instinctual way. At the end of the day, she speaks to the thought that informed is best and then ultimately YOU know what’s best for you and your baby.

EP25- An extra chromosome of joy & a family of 7…

February 5, 2020

Cassie Allred never intended to have a house full of 5 children, but it is the biggest blessing. With the news of her fourth, came that her baby would have Down Syndrome. This was an anxiety provoking experience at the on-sight, but as she says, “I wouldn’t change Tessa’s extra chromosome for anything. It’s who she is.” 

Listen in on how Cassie advises the navigation of a diagnosis like this one and the community she has built, that has saved her during scary times. Also, how she juggles a house full of 5 beautiful children that are on “Team Allred”, and in addition, how she continues her passion of photography and taking care of herself. 

As she says, you cannot take care of anyone until you take care of yourself, so she makes it a priority. Getting up earlier than her kids, listening to podcasts, getting a run in or yoga this mama let’s nothing come between her and her ME time!

EP24- Corporate by day, Mama always…

January 22, 2020

My guest this week is The Corporate Doula, as she calls herself on Instagram, Molly Smith. Molly is a mama with a job in Corporate America, who explains how she juggles both lives: the 9-5pm Career Leader and Mama. 

She candidly explains how this experience was extremely stressful and challenging, as she continued to pump running between meetings. I loved our conversation, as it allowed a little insight into the life of a corporate mama. 

She has also created an Instagram platform where she shares hilarious and raw photos of life behind the scenes of a corporate mama- pumping at work, spilling milk, experiencing postpartum and more.

An Internal Medicine Physician, Cartoonist and wonderful Mom... my guest this week, Grace Farris, talks about how she started to use her cartoon drawings to illustrate her experiences of motherhood. Something that started off as a hobby and got recognized in college, then went on to garner the attention of BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, Cup of Jo and Medium.

My guest this week, Corey Teresi, is the most relatable mom I have seen on Instagram. She is a Fit Mama that shows you how to do fitness the mama way! 

She is a fitness trainer and nutrition coach with a pregnancy workout program and she is currently working on a postpartum workout program (as she herself is currently postpartum). 

She shows mamas that feeling healthy and being fit, does not have to look like a magazine cover- instead, workout in your kitchen, do squats with your baby, get it in anyway you can and find your own power.
