17: ADHD in women with Katy Weber & the (extended) breastfeeding experience Start to Stop Toddler Breastfeeding

    • Parenting

"Sensory Overload", feeling ashamed of the condition of your house, constantly trying to "get organized" ... maybe it's just early motherhood, or maybe it's ADHD. 

As an LC working with breastfeeding moms from pregnancy through to preschool (and beyond!), I have been a little shocked to see how frequently clients come to me who have ADHD, suspect they have ADHD, or are surprised themselves how many boxes they tick off in a screening questionnaire.  There are so many ADHDer's in the "extended" breastfeeding community - but I don't see it being spoken about very much. 

As someone who was diagnosed with ADHD in adulthood myself, I knew it was important to open this conversation up in the breastfeeding space, and I knew that Katy Weber would be the perfect person to do it with. 

We talk about what the lived experience of an adult woman with ADHD is, different avenues for pursuing a diagnosis, and how to navigate the world once you have one. 

A little about Katy: 
" Diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 45, I've now made it my mission to help neurodivergent women learn to love their brains!
 I've spent the last 7 years coaching women to change their mindset and reframe their self-concept so they can finally recognize and lean into their gifts and abilities.
​I'm an author & public speaker, as well as a certified holistic health coach (INHC) and a certified yoga instructor (200 hr RYT). I live in the Hudson Valley, NY, with my husband, two children, our dog, and two cats. Before coaching, I spent 15 years as a newspaper editor & designer. I'm currently pursuing an MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
 I'm also the host of the Women & ADHD podcast, ranked among the top 0.5% of all podcasts globally."
