We were in tears, allowing ourselves to *finally* appreciate and love ourselves after every word she said. In this episode we talk about how to “love where you live” (AKA your body!) How to spend less time obsessing over your appearance, how to TRULY find gratitude for the body you have, and to release yourself from the prison of self-hate.

In today’s episode, we open up about fatigue, anxiety and postpartum depression. We’ve experienced all three at different times, and we are in the thick of a couple of them now! Postpartum depression can be all-consuming, and it’s more than just a bad day.  The polarizing fears that come with anxiety are something completely different, yet equally difficult. We will chat vulnerably about night terrors, irrational fears and how cope.  And lastly, Fatigue. So often we sweep this under the rug and “just deal with it” as moms. But it needs to be acknowledged.  We will give you practical solutions for coping with fatigue, anxiety and depression as well as encouragement. We hope you know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. We’ve been there. We ARE there. Right along with you. So hit play, and cry with us today, mama. We are strong, and we’ve got it in us to keep fighting!  Tully (2018) is the movie we mentioned about postpartum fatigue- it’s rated R, and has adult content, but gives a good look into the life of a tired new mom.
