    A Final Message to You! Thank you! Love, Jess

    A Final Message to You! Thank you! Love, Jess

    Friends, 
    It is with a heavy heart that I close the doors to the Mamas in Training Podcast. The past 3.5 years have been unbelievable and have connected me to so many of you, creating a community I only dreamt of!
    However, my life has been thrown a major curveball and continuing the podcast is not aligning with me at this time. I want to make sure that I'm showing up authentically and truthfully for each and every one of you and until I can do that again, I am stepping away. 
    So, this is the last episode, but if you haven't heard the past 143 other episodes, I encourage you to check them out!
    You're also welcome to join us over on Facebook if you're not a part of that community for continued support from each other.  
    I hope to be back in the podcast world some day, but for now, be well! 
    We're in this together, 
    Jess, Your Host

    EP143- What Your Doctor Isn’t Telling You About Fertility with Monica Cox

    EP143- What Your Doctor Isn’t Telling You About Fertility with Monica Cox

    Infertility can feel lonely and desperate… as if you have no control. Especially if we’re told we have unexplained infertility, what are we to do?! How can we not just throw up our hands and give up?!
     
    After being beat down and given a predetermined course by her doctor, Monica Cox decided to take her future into her own hands and explore Functional Medicine. The impact this new lifestyle had on her personally encouraged her to get trained as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner herself! She continued the diet and healthy lifestyle and got pregnant naturally for first time in 9 years
     
    By learning from what she did, we can start to implement those tools today to improve our chances of fertility and fight back against our doctors.

    EP141- How to Financially Prepare for Motherhood with Jen Narciso

    EP141- How to Financially Prepare for Motherhood with Jen Narciso

    Overwhelmed by finances and motherhood?
    By the end of this episode, you will know where to begin with your money, how to navigate all of those misc. expenses that come along with pregnancy and birth and find comfort in knowing that it is through these Tough, but important conversations that we can create generational wealth and support for our family. 
     
    BIO:
    My name is Jen, and I am the host of the Investor Mama Podcast. I am a wife, mom, daughter, granddaughter, real estate investor, business owner, and project manager. I am an adamant reader and a consumer of content geared towards helping individuals reach financial independence.
    After years of learning, I thought it was about time I started producing and share my obsession with others. However, after being part of the financial independence movement for the past few years, I realized there was a gap in resources around personal finances geared towards moms. Trying to get ahead with money is one thing, trying to get ahead as a mom is whole other ball game.
    I started talking about money more and more with my mom friends and noticed a trend in the questions I was being asked. I didn't have all the answers but knew there were others out there who did and other successful super moms setting the example with their money.
    I thought to myself and said why not find them, interview them, and share their knowledge with other moms also trying to get financially ahead for their family. And so, Investor Mama was born!
    I believe anyone can achieve financial freedom and peace of mind by getting educated and changing their habits. I hope this podcast will be a resource and an inspiration to help you with your own money journey.

    EP140- What Story are You Telling Yourself with Amelia Kriss

    EP140- What Story are You Telling Yourself with Amelia Kriss

    When we enter motherhood, there is an expectation that, “this is just how it is.” You’re never going to get sleep, you’re not going to be able to focus on yourself, good luck, “welcome to motherhood.” But what if we want something different for ourselves?
    Amelia Kriss is a Drama Therapist and Certified Coach in private practice in the Bay Area, California, where she lives with her husband and two powerhouse daughters. She works primarily with recovering people-pleasers and "Nice" girls who are ready to deconstruct self-shrinking patterns, and find more ease & joy. Amelia is also deeply committed to Birth Story Medicine work--helping birthing parents integrate, and move forward from, unresolved issues connected to the experience of giving birth. She believes that supporting parents through birthing as a rite of passage is an important (and too often missing) piece of creating healthier & happier families.

Great for mamas to be

This podcast is such a community builder for those mamas preparing for parenting be it pregnancy, adoption, or surrogacy. Jess is very entertaining, enthusiastic, and professional. She picks great topics and relevant speakers to serve mamas to be!

Amazing podcast and wonderful host!

This podcast is so practical and as a new mom I have loved listening to several of the episodes to feel affirmed and encouraged in this new season! Also, love the Facebook group the host has created for mom support! Can’t wait to continue to learn from fellow new moms and seasoned moms!

Use correct terminology please

Please do not use the term “natural” to describe vaginal birth set or unmedicated birth. All birth is natural. The correct terminology is “unmedicated “or “vaginal delivery” versus “medicated” or “cesarean delivery”.
