    141. How To Deal with Exhaustion and Being Stretched Thin In Motherhood with Julie Fernandes

    141. How To Deal with Exhaustion and Being Stretched Thin In Motherhood with Julie Fernandes

    Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! This is another co-hosted episode with my good friend Dr. Julie from The Confident Parenting Podcast with Dr. Julie Fernandes! In this episode, we are discussing how we currently handle the usual exhaustion in motherhood.




    If you are a new mom or a parent that feels like they’re drowning, this is a great topic to listen to. In our conversation, we discuss how we’re both managing our energy in life right now, how to prioritize tasks, how to rest well, and more about investing in yourself when it feels overwhelming.





     Some big takeaways are:



    The only things we have control over are ourselves and our energy.
    When you reprioritize a task, ask yourself, “How important is this?”
    Women need to be working with their natural bodies and cycles in order to have optimal energy.

    140. Little Kiddos + Big Emotions with Emily Hamblin

    140. Little Kiddos + Big Emotions with Emily Hamblin

    Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! Big emotions in our kids are like a rite of passage for us parents. And because it’s something we all go through, I’ve brought guest Emily Hamblin to the show to share her expertise.




    Emily is the creator and co-host of the Enlightening Motherhood podcast & life coaching business. As a mom of 4, former foster mom of 27, and educator of all ages, she definitely understands what it’s like to feel overwhelmed with your children’s intense behaviors & emotions. 




    In our conversation, we explore the “big emotions” kids can experience and Emily shares her tips for handling those behaviors with confidence and patience. We talk about her family experience, the terrible two’s (three’s, four’s…), and walk through a realistic example together.




    Even if you’re pregnant, or are still in the infant stages, this information is so valuable to have when the time comes! You’ll definitely want to listen in!





     Some big takeaways are:



    The human brain is not fully developed until about 25 years old.
    You are still a good mom, even if big emotions are a struggle for you or your child.
    Much of parenting is worth taking the extra time to do because it’ll save you so much in the long run.

    139. The Mistake of Relying 1000% on Your OB-GYN with Tanya Tringali

    139. The Mistake of Relying 1000% on Your OB-GYN with Tanya Tringali

    Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! OBGYNs are an integral part of the pregnancy journey. But there’s a problem in our culture when we over-rely on them for not just pregnancy, but the whole postpartum period. They might be great at delivering babies, but that doesn’t mean they’re an expert on the human body and all of its intricacies.




    Joining me to talk about this further is Tanya Tringali, the owner and founder of Mother Wit Maternity. She is a Certified Nurse-Midwife on a mission to provide wellness services that promote optimal pregnancy outcomes, safe and satisfying birth experiences, and ease the transition into parenthood. 




    In this episode, we discuss the differences in postpartum care between the current healthcare system and midwifery, what the current system provides, and the things that should be advocated for elsewhere. 




    We also talk about the strain of parenting on relationships, the importance of community, and hear more about Tanya’s approach to postpartum care. 






     Some big takeaways are:



    We need to demystify the role of an OBGYN.
    It’s not the consumer’s job to know what they don’t know or identify what’s wrong with themselves. 
    Don’t wait until the situation is critical to find proper support.

    138. Setting Up Good Sleep Habits with Manu Brune

    138. Setting Up Good Sleep Habits with Manu Brune

    Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! New parents often wonder how they are supposed to get quality sleep when their baby gets up every few hours. My guest Manu Brune and I explore this topic and discuss how to encourage proper sleep habits in babies so that everyone can benefit!

    Manu’s story is very similar to mine, in that she had to call in the help of a professional to sleep train her firstborn because she was already pregnant with her second. And it worked after only three nights!

    Manu then became a pediatric sleep consultant to help other parents and new moms get over the same sleep struggles, while also working as a certified parent coach and postpartum doula.

    In our conversation, we talk more about setting your baby up with proper sleep habits, why parents are apprehensive to sleep train, and the importance of mimicking the womb in the fourth trimester.


    Some big takeaways are:


    Sleep training should not happen until the baby is about 15 weeks of adjusted age.
    Holding your newborn extra will not spoil them!
    New moms need at least 4-hour stretches of sleep to support their health.

    137. Baby Bonding Blocked by Postpartum Anxiety with Ligaya Lange

    137. Baby Bonding Blocked by Postpartum Anxiety with Ligaya Lange

    Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! My guest today is on a mission to make other women more aware of perinatal mental illnesses like postpartum anxiety and OCD.




    Ligaya Lange gave birth to her daughter during COVID following a traumatic 54 hr/C-section birth. A few weeks later, she realized she was suffering from very bad anxiety that was preventing her from bonding with her baby. And so began a long and arduous journey to find the right treatment and get well for her family. 




    In our conversation, we talk about the differences between standard anxiety and postpartum anxiety, how it can prevent proper bonding with baby, the signs and symptoms women can be on the lookout for, and what their first steps should be when seeking treatment.





     Some big takeaways are:



    Women with a history of mental illness are more prone to prenatal and perinatal mental disorders.
    Your primary doctor cannot help you as well as a perinatal psychiatrist can.
    Even if you’ve never suffered from a mental illness as a mom, you can help others by being educated and aware.

    136. The Mourning of Your Old Self as You Become a Mother with Markella Kaplani

    136. The Mourning of Your Old Self as You Become a Mother with Markella Kaplani

    Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! My guest, Markella Kaplani, has seen many moms suffer from an identity crisis in motherhood, coupled with the guilt and shame that tend to tag along. In our discussion, we talk about her personal story of a difficult postpartum, the problem of viewing motherhood as a role, matrescence and the motherly instinct, and the conflicting tension between being a successful mother and being a successful woman in today’s society. 




    Markella is a psychotherapist and a special educator focused on helping expecting and new mothers by addressing this potential identity crisis with confidence, making sure they feel validated and empowered.





     Some big takeaways are:



    Motherhood is something we grow into.
    Our brains actually change as new moms, forcing us to refocus on new priorities. 
    Not everything about motherhood is instinctual - some of it has to be learned.
