Your Birth, Your Worth Podcast


Mar 6, 2019

In today’s episode, Taylor and Darcy talk about the growing number of parents who are experiencing guilt, loneliness, and anxiety when taking care of their newborns. By unraveling the myths and expectations of being a “Super Mom”, Taylor and Darcy explain how mothers can get clear on what they are struggling with, what they need, and how others can help. Modern life sets new parents up in isolation and the challenges that come along with that can affect feelings of worth.

Key Takeaway:  Everybody parents in their own way. We don’t need to sacrifice everything for our babies and children and we are worthy of caring for ourselves. It is when we can be open and honest with their struggles that loved ones, or trained professionals, can step in and help during this transformative time.

Highlights:

  • Parenthood and martyrdom
  • The importance of self-care and exercise
  • Weaker communities leading to more isolation and guilt
  • Why media pressures moms to become “Super Mom”
  • Making your postpartum plan
  • Nourishing food for recovery
  • Communication with your partner and working out a system
  • Support is self-care
  • Sustainable over sacrificial
