Welcome to the Mom & Mind Podcast!

This podcast focuses on the Maternal Mental Health struggles related to becoming pregnant, being pregnant, birth and early parenthood. We talk about all of the stuff that you wish someone would have told you BEFORE you tried to be pregnant or have a baby. Postpartum depression is only part of the story.

The goal of this podcast to put all of this info out in the open. There’s no need to hide these very human experiences…so many people deal with these struggles. So, the podcast provides real life stories of moms, dads and family AND we will talk with experts, leaders and advocates in the field of maternal mental health and maternal health. You deserve to be informed!!!!

Maternal Mental Health Week is Here! 4/30-5/4

World Maternal Mental Health day is Wednesday 5/2

We are addressing the myths of motherhood and parenthood while digging a little deeper to see how those myths become the beliefs that we carry about ourselves. 

What are these myths? So glad you asked! They basically sound like perfection at it's most perfect...

* You will get pregnant easily

* You and your baby will be healthy

* You will love being pregnant and being a mother

* You will know what to do and how to do it 

* Breastfeeding will be easy

* You will instantly bond with your baby postpartum

And so on...What can you add to the list? WELL, what happens when these myths don't become reality????

We feel like failures. We blame ourselves. We think that we did something wrong. We feel like bad mothers. 

Let's tear this down and start over. Yes, some people have these really lovely experiences, but for those of us who don't...we are suffering by the pain of these "failures". I say, we say, that's enough. Let's call it out and realize that you're working so hard and you are a good mom.
