I truly think that the competition and urge to be the perfect mom comes from 1. seeing our mothers do it all but never truly seeing the negative aspects of keeping up with doing it all, because you know we love to put in a front and break down in a closet/car or 2. If our mothers didn't do what we felt needed to be done as a parent we decide we are going to get it right, not realizing that what our parents did was the best They CLD do and in turn we overcompensate. And put on a Front. And break down in the closet/car lmao

Oh my gosh I was so overwhelmed with breastfeeding! Everything she said was spot on for me..stressed because the milk was not coming in, thinking my child was not getting enough and feeling like a complete and total failure. Thankfully the lactation nurse at my child's pediatrician offered suggestions and within a day of following her suggestion I got results. It was SUCH a relief. Thank you for sharing ALL of these thoughts that were very real for me. #representationmatters #weMUSTshareourstories

12 years ago I gave birth to my daughter 3 weeks early, due to preeclampsia, which later developed into congestive heart failure. I had a bout of "baby blues" that almost took a toll on me. This podcast was really informative. Black women are dying and suffering in silence at an alarming rate.

Thank you. Your voice, your presence is calming and reassuring. You are giving voice to very important wellness issues that are historically not talked about in the black community. I’m grateful that I “bumped into” your podcast. I been saying hey y’all for so long but still ain’t seen a coffee cup! Love it.

I love this podcast! My only thing is what advice do you have for someone who has worked on themselves prior to dating, but they still need to work on themselves?
