    Prepping For All That Comes Postpartum With Dr. Alyssa Berlin

    Prepping For All That Comes Postpartum With Dr. Alyssa Berlin

    Having a baby is an extraordinary time of change, both physical and psychological. In this episode of Mom Brain, we talk about the latter – what to expect and how to prepare for the addition of a baby to your life. Not only is Dr. Alyssa Berlin a mother of four, but she is also a clinical psychologist who specializes in pregnancy, postpartum and parenting. Alyssa is also the creator of The AfterBirth Plan Workshop, a program helping couples prepare for the challenges that come with raising a newborn. She believes these postpartum challenges are actually predictable and preventable – or at least addressable.




    Alyssa, Hilaria and Daphne have a wide ranging conversation that focuses on postpartum and perinatal anxiety disorders (PMADs) and how they differ from the "baby blues." She also discusses how partners can keep their relationship alive while raising children. Maybe putting sex on the calendar isn't such a bad idea after all!

A review from the fence (UPDATED)

I was thinking about revisiting this podcast so I went to the reviews to see if there were positives and it is pretty clear that HB is still just using this podcast to talk about her 17 kids and movie star husband and zzzzzzzzzz. Maybe we can play a drinking game!!! Every time HB interrupts (or tells a longwinded story about her kids), take a sip of wine! (You’ll be smashed half way through one episode).

MY ORIGINAL REVIEW: Most of the time I’m rolling my eyes (hard) when I hear uber wealthy moms chit-chat about how haaaaaard it is or how the struggle is REAL. Honestly, give me a break. When you don’t have to worry about the basic necessities of life like food, shelter, medical care...especially if you have children—go ahead and remove “struggle” from your vocabulary.

Make no mistake, this is a podcast hosted by two incredibly wealthy women with multiple palatial homes and full-time (probably live-in) help. They aren’t facing all of the issues the rest of us are, so just think about that before you listen.
