We get it. Being a mom is full-on and full-time. Equal parts FUN and WTF. Our kids don’t come with instructions, and it’s ok if we don’t have all the answers. We’ll figure it out together. The best advice comes from our favorite experts and doctors, trusted mom friends, and learning on the job. Get your coffee — or wine! — and tune in to hear us spill it all. We got this. This is MOM BRAIN with Hilaria Baldwin and Daphne Oz.

    "Let's Talk About Sex Bay-Bee" With Dr. Lea Lis

    "Let's Talk About Sex Bay-Bee" With Dr. Lea Lis

    If you're dreading the day you have to have "the sex talk" with your kids, this is the episode for you. We talked with Dr. Lea Lis (a.k.a “The Shameless Psychiatrist”) all about getting into the birds and the bees with our kids. She's a double board-certified Adult and Child Psychiatrist and an Assistant Clinical Professor at New York Medical College, who's active in the American Psychiatric Association. Dr. Lis dives right in and nothing is taboo to her. She literally wrote the book on talking to your kids about sex and it's called, No Shame: Real Talk With Your Kids About Sex, Self-Confidence, and Healthy Relationships.

    In this episode, Dr. Lis tells Hilaria and Daphne to be honest, open and unashamed when approaching our kids about sex and their bodies. If we have reservations, our kids will too. She discusses how sex is addressed differently between cultures, whether it's in Europe or the U.S. and there are many approaches. Dr. Lis' opinion is to just go for it, take the plunge and your kids will follow.

    This episode is all about giving and receiving mom advice. Danielle joined Hilaria and Daphne right in the streets of Brooklyn—because in reality, being a mom means adapting to the situation at hand, and that's just what Danielle did.

You'll hear great advice and honest conversation (plus, a train or two in the background, and probably a crying baby)!
