Sarah & Stephanie sit down with fellow mama, veteran journalist for renowned publications such as Shape, Women's Health, Parents, What To Expect, among others, and founder of Dear Sunday Motherhood, Cassie Shortsleeve. We dive into some of the often unspoken challenges of pregnancy and new motherhood from mental wellness to physical healing, social changes, and mourning the life you had prior to becoming a parent. "Research shows that the perinatal period of pregnancy, postpartum, and new motherhood is monumental. It’s life-changing. The adult female brain arguably never changes more significantly than it does when you become a mother." - C. Shortsleeve
The fact that there is such a lack of care for womxn during such a transformational and pivotal time is truly unacceptable. Learn ways you can advocate for yourself, know that you are NOT alone, and find out about some of the amazing resources out there that are available.
