    What would it be like to be in a supportive, normalizing, encouraging group of women who just GET YOU and are there to grow and thrive together?

    There is tremendous power in groups and in today's episode I'm telling you why groups are so powerful and how you can be part of the next group coaching program designed for women 4-24 months after having a baby.

    Motherhood Uncovered is for you if you want:
    To be heard
    To be respected
    To have the load shared
    To break from unrelenting societal pressures
    To make and use and respect boundaries
    To have authentic connection
    To let down your walls and just breath and be
    To have other women championing you, not competing with you
    To feel less overwhelm and more support
    To have guidance on where to start
    To have wisdom and insight without judgement and forceful advice
    To let the walls of taboo conversation be broken down so you can truly connect with others who get you.

    In today's episode Chelsea talks with mother and RN, Jordan Laux, to discuss what she's discovered about herself and her inner child as she entered motherhood.

    About our guest:
    Jordan is a pediatric and perinatal nurse whose heart has always been with mothers and children. After having a child of her own in 2019 and experiencing both birth trauma and the lack of support in postpartum from healthcare and our culture at large, a spark was lit in her heart to educate, and empower mothers in the postpartum period.

    American culture leaves mothers isolated and unprepared for the intense holistic changes motherhood brings. In the last three years this radical transformation of identity, relationship reorganization, body image struggles, and priority shifts has fanned this spark into a flame to create a supportive community for mothers because it’s something greatly lacking in her own life. Jordan is trying to manifest this community of support and education with The Supported Parenthood RN.

    By day Jordan is reheating her coffee 27 times while being bossed around by her toddler daughter, and by night she’s either working in the hospital or dreaming of ways to connect with other mothers.

    From Kristyn:
    My name is Kristyn Dingman and I am so much more than a stay at home mother.  I struggled with body image my entire life.   I constantly compared myself to the people on TV or the women on magazine covers and wondered why I didn’t look like them or why I wasn’t as pretty as they were. I was insecure and always felt like I was being judged by my looks. As long as I can remember, I was always stepping on a scale to see what the numbers read or compared my waist size to my friends.  It wasn't until I got pregnant with my first son that my entire world was flipped onto its head.  I saw my body go through drastic changes in such a short period of time that I didn't really have time to see and appreciate my body and all it was going through.  Once my son was born, I was bombarded with diet cultures, MLM schemes and plenty of 'bounce back' businesses who constantly pressured me into getting my pre baby body back. I was so lost and felt so alone.   I had enough.   I decided to make some changes and decided to put my mental health first. This was a whole new concept to me. I had never been the one to care my myself. I spent years at war with my body and decided to put an end to the battle.   I started blogging and sharing my story with the world and wanted to create a place where others who struggle with body image and negative diet culture could come and feel represented.   I wanted to show the real and raw sides of motherhood and what positive body image could look like from someone who struggled their entire life.   Here I am today with an amazing community of people who follow along and have a safe place to feel loved regardless of their body, size, color or gender.
