    Insecurities, Vulnerability & An Angel Reading

    Just when you thought we couldn’t get any weirder, we are talking alien spaceships, metallic oblong unearthly visions, birthing toddlers, ghost dogs, shadow & light houses, dead relative messages, spirit animals, the magic manifest board touch but also we are getting real and raw with our deepest insecurities, career wobbles, spiritual upleveling, money anxiety and the “just soldier on” mother mentality.

    Love Languages, Limitations & Lols

    Love Languages, Limitations & Lols

    Hey Dazeys! Another solo episode is up. And we’re discussing love languages! No guesses here which witch is which- one of us loves physical touch and the other likes random acts of service, especially if it involves dishes. What’s your love language? Quality time? Gifts? Affirmations?! The tattooed husband drops in, we giggle over marriage dynamics, significant sunburns & stolen skincare and we unpack how not-to ease the overwhelming list of to-dos, where we’re at with sweets and device limitations and just have some good old afternoon Lols. 

    Join us for the madness wherever you listen to podcasts!

    Perseverance, Childbirth & Belief In Your Dreams With Angelique Cabral

    Perseverance, Childbirth & Belief In Your Dreams With Angelique Cabral

    All hail the Queen (of Disney's new movie WISH) Angelique Cabral !! DAZEY’S she may not be royalty by blood but this Mama is THE Queen in our eyes! Today we chat with Angelique about her life, how she ended up spread across so many different fields- a Montessori teacher, a yoga teacher, a singer, a caterer, a mother of 2, a performance coach and an actor with a mile long list of credits, oh and most importantly Sarah’s Pickleball Semi finalist partner!! 

    This girl brought so much joy to our conversation, sharing with us the stories of her wildly different births (one a c-section, one a Vbac) unpacking how her young womanhood shaped her and talking to us about the awareness she’s found when dancing with her dreams- how staying the course with determination, grit, willpower, hustle and belief in yourself will unlock remarkable things. Angelique has shown such incredible perseverance and it’s well and truly paid off with her latest MASSIVE role, booking the job of a lifetime in Disney's new Animated movie. This episode has left us all on such a high and we are so excited for you to listen!

    Homebirthing & Blended Families With Tori Praver

    Homebirthing & Blended Families With Tori Praver

    In this week's The Mother Daze episode we chat to drop dead gorgeous Mama of three, fashion designer and model Tori Praver!
    Tori candidly shares her journey through childbirth, contrasting her latest empowering homebirth with reflections on the positive and challenging aspects of a hospital birth with an epidural. We also touch on the mental battle of ultra fast labours and the touching, sibling witnessed, hands on approach the whole family took during the birth of her last baby. Tori is also the poster child for balancing the intricacies of modern family life. She gives us a look inside all the ways in which her family has navigated co-parenting dynamics with both her new husband and ex hubs (spoiler alert- it is the DREAM scenario!)”
