McLean McGown joins the Be You Collective today for a powerful episode on motherhood and intuition. Host of the Mother to Mother Podcast, I discovered McLean and was immediately drawn to her as we are all learning how to mother not only our children, but mother ourselves.
The Be You Podcast by coach and spirituality and wellness enthusiast Jill Herman is all about women helping women to unbecome everything they thought they had to be and unapologetically embracing their trust self. Jill covers topics like healing, parenting, self love, women helping women, spirituality and much more.
Through the Be You podcast and her work with the Be You Collective, Jill makes the challenging process of healing approachable, especially when it comes to parenting and self love. She draws on her personal parenting experiences, her own healing journey, and wisdom from coaches and thought leaders like Glennon Doyle, Lisa Bilyeu, Luke Storey, Christine Hasler, and more.
Whether you’re looking for parenting advice, a community of women helping women, or you’re on your own healing journey, the Be You Podcast is for you.
McLean McGown is a mother of two, wife, Postpartum Doula, Yoga & Pilates teacher, Nutritionist, Buddhist, and yoga practitioner living in Los Angeles. She became a Postpartum Doula in order to embody the help that she didn’t realize she needed after the birth of her first daughter. Becoming a postpartum doula led her to her truest passion - to support women during one of their most vulnerable times in life and bear witness to their right of passage into motherhood. She is the host of Mother the Mother Podcast which was created to support women throughout their journey into motherhood with a central focus on the postpartum shift. As told from a Doula’s perspective, her podcast helps women to empower themselves from fertility through to postpartum.
