17 Feb Ep. 30- New Series! The Momma Project. The Struggle of the Mother- Perfectionism and Frenzy.
Breastfeeding, Postpartum, Letting Go of our Expectations.
What are our biggest struggles as a mom? Especially a Mom to Littles-
Hannah Alfred is a beautiful soul- if this were Avonlea and we lived in the Green Gables era- Hannah would be my “kindred spirit.” Her humor and exuberance is paired with an intense struggle with perfectionism; what she refers to as “paralysis by analysis.”
We talk about the first year as mom- the preparedness a we can strive for, but when life happens or the doctors demand bed rest and the baby comes 8-10 weeks early- all the advice and the books are useless fodder and reality kicks us in the teeth.
Motherhood is often a joyful, but lonely affair. There are moments when guilt can cripple, frustration derails our intentions, and the ordinariness of our day can isolate moms. This series is a safe place to share our stories, break the isolation and laugh at the absurdity of the idea of “perfect mom.”
Thank you- Hannah- for being real- “for speaking my language.”
