    Conscious Parenting and Healing Ourselves - 081

    Conscious Parenting and Healing Ourselves - 081

    Host Mellisa Reeves and guest Tamara Iglesias of Welly Nest, a conscious parenting coach, explore how motherhood brings up all of the unresolved issues in our lives and how conscious parenting serves as an invitation to heal our own selves.


    Tamara believes that "parenting is our greatest opportunity to evolve. In this episode, we explore how motherhood triggers our childhood wounds, beliefs about the world, and even our own inadequacy as mothers. If motherhood is an opportunity to evolve, to transform, then these triggers are the catalysts that enable this transformation.


    Healing our own wounds is the way forward, instead of getting caught up in the distractions of reacting to our children's behaviours and the anxiety so many of us experience. If you've ever felt in the trenches of motherhood and didn't know how to find your way through the dark, this conversation will be like seeing a glimpse of light for the first time in awhile.

Fantastic reflecting space!

Such a powerful podcast with deep exploration of the transition into motherhood. Sharing story, experience, realness, pain and healing is a path to healing and MotherBirth does a beautiful job of holding that space for mothers. Thank you!

Fascinating, Vital, and Real

This podcast is a wonderful and incredibly valuable resource for mothers, families, and anyone in the birth world. All sorts of topics that are near and dear to my heart, and that are so empowering and validating for us. One of the things I love most about it is the way they present and address the real deal, and not just the sugar-coated, sunshine and rainbows wonder of birth and parenthood. Because, while it is a beautiful and fulfilling privilege in so many ways, it can also be the biggest challenge and struggle we ever face. Support is vital, and can come in all forms-- I highly recommend this is one source of it. 💜💜💜

Truthful and insightful

What I am loving about this podcast for mothers is how radically honest these conversations are, and how progressive and empowering the information is. I feel like Mellisa and Laura are helping bring women's true voices back into the decisions and perspectives on our health and well being throughout birth and motherhood. It is time!
