    Changing the narrative of motherhood

    Changing the narrative of motherhood

    Have you ever felt guilty that you're not cherishing motherhood as much as you should? Journalist and author, Eliane Glaser believes that the false narrative around how joyful motherhood is, is toxic and damaging for new mothers, advocating instead that we are honest around its challenges. This honesty, she believes, will empower women and allow them to release the burden of guilt, thereby allowing them to be better mothers.

Something (pleasantly) different

I really enjoy this podcast and find that it covers lots of topics that other parenting podcasts don’t. I do find it quite uncomfortable that Maria seems to frequently use herself and her own children as good examples and her nieces and nephews and their parents as bad examples. It just feels a little uncomfortable and I find it quite alienating as a listener. It doesn’t put me off though, I do keep listening.
