episode description

045: In the Trenches of New Motherhood (with Aubrey and Maren of The Mamahood)

This heart-to-heart conversation with Aubrey and Maren, hosts of the Mamahood podcast and online community, is as honest as it gets. We talk all about being new to motherhood, postpartum depression, and everything in between. Whether you are a new mom, whether you’ve been there and done that, or whether you know a new mom, this episode is for you. You’ll learn how to get the support you need or how to support someone else who may be struggling in the trenches of motherhood. You’ll also love to hear how their podcast/online community came to be, how it can help you, and what you can do to help new moms even if you aren’t in that stage yourself.

show notes

Be the person to ask, “How are you really doing?”

There is no shame in asking for and getting help.

If you come upon a person who is drowning, would you ask if they need help—or would it be better to just jump in and save them from the deepening waters? The offer, while well meaning and often given, “Let me know if I can help” is really no help at all. –Ronald A. Rasband
