In this episode, Brittany Bergman, author of Expecting Wonder: The Transformative Experience of Becoming a Mother, provides an insightful glimpse into early motherhood, her struggles with mom rage, and how she doesn’t feel fulfilled by motherhood, despite loving her two children more than the world.
With vivid recollection, guest Aliette Silva recounts to Brandi the day she nearly died during childbirth, how her near-death experience significantly impacted her life, and why it’s vital for women to endlessly advocate for their health.
In this episode, Brandi talks with Kiley Taslitz Anderson, co-founder of Jetson and Jettie, about her life-changing experience with pregnancy discrimination, her lawsuit against her former employer, and how this and her c-section experience prompted her to start her own mom-friendly company.
How do you treat your postpartum body? If you’re like us, it’s complicated. Sometimes, we’re in awe and totally love and respect our bodies for everything they’ve done. And other times, we’re beating up on ourselves and not being very nice, to be honest. On today’s show, we unpack our feelings of ambivalence and talk about how we want to improve our relationship with our bodies.
