Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

Becoming a mother comes with so many changes. After having kids, it can be difficult to maintain a sense of self and find purpose (or a moment to yourself!) outside of motherhood. Specifically, after the last few years of the pandemic, the challenges that mothers are faced with have only increased, and are leaving long-lasting impacts.
To talk more about this topic, I have guest Catherine O’Brien on the podcast. We’re discussing many different pieces of motherhood, such as maternity leave, connecting with your partner, finding moments for yourself, mental health, and so much more.
Ultimately, this is a very candid conversation between two moms voicing what many of us think about on a daily basis. The big takeaway that I want you to walk away with is that you are not alone in any of the feelings that you are experiencing as a mother, wife, friend, or any other role that you play.
Catherine O’Brien is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and the founder of HappyWithBaby.com. She knows what it’s like to be overwhelmed, out of energy, and out of ideas as a new parent. She created Happy With Baby in order for new and expecting parents to discover the advice she wishes she could have had when managing expectations of parenthood and relationships.
