Comparing My Postpartum Experiences: Mental Health, Letting Go of Control, and What I’ve Learned

In this solo episode, I unpack how both of my postpartum experiences have differed, from my relationships with anxiety and depression; to my fixation on controlling outcomes; to how I have prioritized self care and developed mental health toolkits for myself. I recap my first postpartum experience in 2021, sharing what my relationship with anxiety was like before getting pregnant and how it manifested in postpartum, and how my need for control created obsessive behaviors. I then share my second and most recent postpartum experience, from dealing with sleep issues with both children; to feeling mentally stronger; to letting go of how things “should be” and embracing them for what they are. Finally, I share what I wish I had started earlier during postpartum, and what I would tell myself as a first-time mother experiencing both the highs and lows of postpartum.Key Takeaway / Points:Recapping my first postpartum experience in 2021My relationship with anxiety and journey with anxiety medication before getting pregnantOn planning for postpartum anxiety and depression before giving birthWhen and how my mental health struggles hit during postpartumHow I developed a self-care toolkit and prioritized my mental healthOn experiencing intrusive thoughtsOn my need for control and planning obsessivelyMy postpartum experience with our second childOn dealing with sleep issues with both childrenWhat has helped with my mental health this time aroundOn letting go of control as a second-time momWhat I wish I had started earlier during postpartumWhat I would tell myself during my first postpartum experienceThis episode may contain paid endorsements and advertisements for products and services.

Solo: Two Years Without Drinking

In this solo episode, I celebrate my two year anniversary of being alcohol-free with a deep dive into my decision to stop drinking, my background with alcohol growing up, and where I stand now on this decision that started out as a temporary experiment. I share how I suspected I didn’t enjoy drinking in college and post-college years like other people, how the effects of alcohol changed after my concussion, and why I felt angry and disempowered when I couldn’t drink after my accident. I also talk about how I moved from a disempowered choice to an empowered choice, why being hungover as a parent was a game changer for my decision, and how I have discovered an inner confidence and self-trust I didn’t have before. Finally, I answer listener questions like whether I ever miss drinking, how alcohol affects my mental health versus other substances, how I navigate events with friends and being around people who are drinking, and much more.Key Takeaway / Points:My upbringing with alcohol and experience drinking in collegeFeeling like I didn’t enjoy alcohol as much as everyone elseOn implementing Sober Mondays into my routineOn the effects of alcohol changing after my concussionOn moving from feeling disempowered to making an empowered decision to stop drinkingOn the gamechanger of being hungover as a parentOn finding inner confidence and self-trust from this decisionOn whether I miss drinkingOn not drawing the line in the sand for future decisionsHow alcohol affects my mental health differently than other substancesWhat I order when out with friendsHow to navigate events like bachelorette parties when not drinkingOn people pressuring you to drink and examining those relationshipsOn the confidence boost of knowing I enjoy myself as I amAny noticeable changes I’ve felt since not drinkingListen to my past episodes on stopping drinking here and hereThis episode may contain paid endorsements and advertisements for products and services.

Babies, Bidets, and a Little Bit of Boredom: Hello, 2024

In this solo episode, I dive into how I’ve been feeling so far in postpartum, how our holiday and New Year went as a family of four, and what I’m hoping for moving into 2024.

In this episode, I sit down with Cindy Linville – my mother and three-peat guest – to discuss all things being a grandparent, from the experience of watching your own children raise children; to the act of meeting children where they are; to witnessing your children mirror your own traits. We talk about what it means to Cindy to not care about what people think, how she and I have experienced setting and respecting boundaries around parenting and the grandparent-child relationship, and how we’ve navigated body talk discussions in our family. She shares the generational differences in parenting she has observed, what it means to find your unique “thing” as a grandparent, and gives her best advice to grandparents who want to be in their grandchildrens’ lives while respecting boundaries.Key Takeaway / Points:On being a grandparent and watching your children raise childrenOn meeting your children where they areOn your children mirroring youUnpacking not caring what people think about youWatching the grandparent relationship growOn setting boundaries and respecting themOn the body talk discussions we’ve had within our familyOn the generational differences in parenting between millennials and baby boomersAdvice for grandparents wanting to be in their grandkids’ lives while respecting boundariesOn respecting the relationship with in-lawsOn finding your unique “thing” as a grandparentCindy’s best fashion and skin care tipsListen to Jay Shetty and Lori Gottblieb’s conversation on boundaries hereThis episode may contain paid endorsements and advertisements for products and services.

The Freedom in “Less” with Olivia Noceda

Episode Description: In this episode, I sit down with friend and content creator Olivia Noceda to talk about priorities, boundaries, and understanding what we want versus what we think we want. We reflect on a time Olivia was there for me during a postpartum breakdown, and Olivia shares how she has developed her journey with boundaries over time. She also discusses why regularly establishing your priorities in life is essential, how the impulse of comparison on social media is inevitable, and why fiction and escapism can be so freeing. She also talks about her path to sober curiosity, how we can become addicted to routine, and why in a culture of “more,” “less” is actually the key to finding freedom and release.Key Takeaway / Points:Remembering a time when Olivia was there for me during a postpartum breakdownHow Olivia has developed her journey with boundariesWhy regularly establishing your priorities is essentialOn the impulse of comparison with social mediaOn the concept of being addicted to romance and escapismThe importance of fiction in our livesOlivia’s journey with sober curiosityWhy it’s healthy to observe our relationships with vices, from alcohol to social mediaOn becoming addicted to routineOn what you think you want vs. what you actually wantOn the freedom and release that comes from “less” Listen to the Armchair Expert episode with Anna Lembke hereThis episode may contain paid endorsements and advertisements for products and services.
