Technical Difficulties

Sorry, no new episode this week due to technical difficulties. But thanks to motherhood, we learn to adapt.

We have improved our sound quality for our first 4 episodes and would love for you to listen again!

We will be back next Friday, June 8 for more shenanigans!

Exercise…who has the time?

We all know that a healthy lifestyle and exercise is crucial for a healthy life and it is always something in the back of a mom’s mind. How do you fit it in? Is it really THAT important after having a baby? Sarah and Pamela discuss how beneficial exercise is postpartum and how can someone incorporate an exercise routine into their weekly schedule. They also discuss their struggles with balancing motherhood and their own health. There is also a special appearance by Sarah’s baby, Daisy!

Favorite Children’s Books

Goodnight Moon, Harry Potter series, Peter Rabbit, or Charlotte’s Web…which one is your favorite? This episode we get back to the “fluffier” side of things with our discussion of our favorite books as children and what we like to read to our children too. We also discuss the books that are ranked the greatest children’s books of all time and the ones that are best-sellers too (some are on both lists and some are not). Listen and find out if your favorite made the list.

Also, Sarah has a special treat for Pamela regarding “off-beat” children’s book titles.

Postpartum Depression

Welcome back! We’re giving you all a special treat with a second episode. This episode we are discussing postpartum depression, anxiety, bipolar, and OCD disorders. We also discuss our own personal experiences and treatment.

Our hope is to remove the stigma behind discussing PPD, as well as other mental health issues, so that others will be comfortable seeking the help they need.

Here are the links to the resources we discussed during the episode.
