Motherhood can get murky! You can feel alone, unsure, and in desperate need of some guidance. Jen from And Hattie Makes Three (mom to Hattie) and Audrey from Read It & Reap with Me (mom to Elise & Dax) team up to talk about the topics that nobody wants to talk about in a refreshing, candid, relatable way.

They don’t have it all figured out either, but as they always say, "let’s navigate these murky waters of motherhood together."

    Mothering during Cancer with Lara MacGregor (13)

    Mothering during Cancer with Lara MacGregor (13)

    On this week’s episode of Murky Motherhood, we welcome our very first guest! Lara MacGregor, founder of Hope Scarves, joins us for a conversation about mothering during cancer. We talk about how to ask for help, how to support people going through a trauma like a cancer diagnosis, and more.
    About Lara
    Audrey's cousin Lara was 30 years old and 7-months pregnant when she was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. She talks about the complete and utter shock of receiving a cancer diagnosis during her 3rd trimester (with a 2 year old son at home, too). Lara's journey doesn't end there - years later, her cancer metastasized which makes her now a stage 4 metastatic breast cancer patient. She lives life over cancer daily and chronicles her experience on her blog My Hopeful Life and podcast A Hopeful Life.

    We are so thankful to Lara for taking time to share her hope with us!

    Hardest Word for Moms (9)

    Why in the heck is it so hard to say no?! As women, especially moms, it’s easy to get caught up in the overfunctioning game.

I feel like I’m listening to my friends

When I listen, I find myself wanting to share and jump in the conversation. I’m saying “yes, girls, me too!” It’s nice to hear moms that have similar feelings to my own. I feel better, I feel validated and I feel “normal”. I’m just sorry I can’t chat with Audrey and Jen in person.

Skip therapy Moms

Literally this is better than my therapist that I go to to deal with all my mom guilt. Listen and feel better about your parenting choices after the first podcast. Keep up the work ladies- I’m sure your helping out a lot of moms with the guilt.

Just what I needed

A great coffee chat with real mom friends. So glad these two saved us a seat at the table!
