    Surviving The Holidays, Part I | Let's Discuss... with Meg Duke

    Anticipatory anxiety hits a lot of us as we approach the holiday season. In this week's episode, I go through the first part of tips, activities, and boundary setting ideas that can help us as we prepare for human interaction and the general business the time of year brings about.

    Also, my daughter was home sick from school the day I recorded this and woke up before I made my way through, so you'll have to come back for round 2, still to come!

    The Tea on Birth Trauma | Let's Discuss... with Teela Tomassetti

    The Tea on Birth Trauma | Let's Discuss... with Teela Tomassetti

    In this week's episode, Teela and I Spill the Tea on birth trauma, Mom Brain, and the dichotomy of feeling many things at once, including gratitude for your child but not your birth story.

    Spoiler Alert - We once again discuss the glamorization of the House of Dragon forced birth scene, which leads to many thoughts, including how partners of traumatic birthers are often overlooked in their own mental wellness and again, how hard would it have been to add a dang trigger warning?

    We discuss the importance of holding parents long after the birth process, because the trauma lasts, reclaiming yourself following your trauma, and the importance of utilizing language appropriately.

    Sex, Pooping, and Other Postpartum Activities | with Expecting and Empowered's Krystle Howald

    Sex, Pooping, and Other Postpartum Activities | with Expecting and Empowered's Krystle Howald

    Yep, we are going there! This is the episode I've been wanting to do for a while, so I was delighted when Krystle told me she'd happily spend an hour talking about the joys of trying to use that postpartum body again.

    Krystle and I discuss the gatekeeping that occurs in perinatal time periods, and how she has recognized we seem to focus more on medical practice but not really on Health Care. We discuss pregnancy cravings, pelvic floor exercises, the importance of breath, the list goes on. This is one you do not want to miss!

    Which Balls are Glass, Momma? | Let's Discuss...

    Which Balls are Glass, Momma? | Let's Discuss...

    I'm back from Cabo! This week, I'm reflecting on a common theme in trainings, with clients, and with friends who are parents, how do we give ourselves grace? How do we know where we can loosen our reigns just a little to help invite more space for parental sanity?

    In a training with my mentor a few weeks ago, she quoted Nora Roberts as saying, "Some of the balls you have in the air are made of plastic & some are made of glass.

    "If you drop a plastic ball, it bounces, no harm done. If you drop a glass ball, it shatters, so you have to know which balls are glass and which are plastic and prioritize catching the glass ones.”

    I'm working hard in my own life to recognize what is vital, and what could maybe take a back seat, or what even could be done away with, even for a short period of time. I invite you to be intentional about reflecting on things you might be able to allow a loved one to help with, and perhaps, are you gatekeeping someone from taking more responsibility? It's certainly not the case for everyone, but when I reflect upon my time as a parent, there are clear indicators of times I most definitely was gatekeeping.

    Kids Are Expensive! | Let's Discuss... with Special Guest, Financial Therapist, Lindsay Bryan-Podvin

    Kids Are Expensive! | Let's Discuss... with Special Guest, Financial Therapist, Lindsay Bryan-Podvin

    This week's guest, financial therapist and social worker, Lindsay Bryan-Podvin, blows my mind a little when she reveals the average cost of raising a child in the US is now up to $300k. Goodness!

    Lindsay encourages us, we GOTTA talk about money. By discussing finances with our partners, we help to shake off the shame that often comes along with it and can help decrease the interpersonal conflicts that historically arise as a result of money matters. We discuss how to broach the topic with our little ones to help them feel safe and secure, all the while hopefully avoiding passing along the shame that can surround money.

    Lindsay literally wrote the book on how money impacts our mental health - The Financial Anxiety Solution - which includes workbook activities that can help set us on the road to achieving our financial goals. Money conversations can make us all feel vulnerable, and we discuss ways couples can be proactive rather than reactive in broaching this topic to work toward achieving our financial goals.
