The Mommy Wars Lied to You

The Mommy Wars Lied to You

I won't lie to you… today's podcast is an opinion piece through and through – and I think you're going to love it! Talk about childbirth needs to change, and it needs to change with women first. The “mommy wars” leave women afraid to share information – and that fear is creating silence that hurts us, our children, and even our grandchildren. I share it all in today's podcast.

Topics I Cover in This Podcast:

  • How the “don't be part of the mommy wars” line actually hurts women
  • Why making it all about “choice” leaves women feeling disempowered and guilty
  • How we can better support women who don't have an ideal birth
  • Why birth matters
  • Current “tip-of-the-iceberg” evidence that every mom-to-be needs to know
  • How silencing moms with “mommy war” scolding hurts women everywhere – and destroys what we're building for our daughters
