    86. HERself Expert: Dr. Cassidy Freitas on Getting Your Needs Met

    We have a lot of firsts and new content on this episode! Dr. Cassidy found her calling as a therapist from the need for more in her own life. She helps women prevent the issues that happen in motherhood by working through triggers that can cause overstimulation, overwhelm and mom rage. Is perfectionism holding you back from feeling your best? Does the dog barking feel like one more demand on your life? Do you need a break from social media or something else that is tugging at your time?


    Thank you Dr. Cassidy for opening up about your own experiences to help us navigate through our challenges!

    85. The Overwhelm Episode

    85. The Overwhelm Episode

    We know you have felt it. Those heavy days, weeks, months where you are pulled in a million directions and the overwhelm creeps in. Maybe it’s from plans changing last minute or too much on your plate. Maybe it’s from needing to delegate or setting unrealistic expectations in the first place.


    Wherever you are, we are standing with you in solidarity. This episode provides a warm hug if you need it right now and also some solutions on where we have been able to help prevent overwhelm from happening in our own lives.

    84. HERself Expert: Dr. Angel Montfort on The Keys to Finding Who You Are as a Mother

    Dr. Angel Montfort is a mother of four and a perinatal mental health psychologist. She understands the heaviness that comes with motherhood and is here to coach us through the changes and challenges this role brings. This is an episode we both wish we would have had when we were brand new to motherhood. We hope it hits home to those of you struggling through the baby blues, mom guilt, speaking to yourself kindly, and accepting yourself in your role as a mother.

    83. HERstory: Shayla Christine Gets Real On Motherhood

    83. HERstory: Shayla Christine Gets Real On Motherhood

    Shayla (known as @heyshayla on Instagram and YouTube) has a hilarious yet real take on motherhood. She is the mama who questions everything and gets all the answers so we don’t have to do the research. Ummm, yes please sign me up! We loved talking with her about her pandemic pregnancy, marriage after kids, and how she talks about the tough stuff to help others not feel so alone (but also where she draws the line). Thanks for the laughs and wisdom Shayla, this was such a fun one to record!

    82. Bring on the Men: A Male Perspective on Sharing the Mental Load and Partnership After Kids

    82. Bring on the Men: A Male Perspective on Sharing the Mental Load and Partnership After Kids

    We invited our husbands back on for their 6th HERself podcast interview! This one takes a different spin as a follow up from @decoding_couples in episode 79. We talk through a partner’s perspective on relationships after children, where we can continue growing in our communication, prioritizing marriages in full seasons, and how finding ourselves as individuals can improve our marriage. This is a great one to invite your partner to listen to as well!

    81. HERself Expert: Jenna Overbaugh on Intrusive Thoughts, Postpartum Mental Health Changes, and Recovery for OCD and Anxiety

    We have had several therapists on the podcast but Jenna is the FIRST who specializes in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The perfectionism, intrusive thoughts, and over-checking many of us do can be linked to OCD and these can all increase postpartum. Luckily there are solutions we can start doing today to reinforce a healthier habit and future for those who do struggle with these issues and Jenna lays out tangible ways we can begin to feel like ourselves again.

Refreshing

What an awesome space you create for women to be real and authentic. I always feel understood, encouraged and challenged when I listed to your podcasts. It’s a favourite during my morning mental health walks before going home to my wonderful small humans. Thank you Amy and Abby!
