40. Journey To Conceive

Hey girlfriends! Today we're discussing the journey to conceive. Just like all pregnancies are different, women will have varying experiences on their journey to conceiving as well, with some women having more speed bumps on the journey than others (IVF, reoccurring miscarriages', diagnosed medical conditions that make conception difficult like PCOS and Endometriosis). In this episode we talk about: the personal experiences of our special guest, Aleisha on her journey to conceiving, and how society reacts when women don't get pregnant on the timeline they think they should.  What are some common feelings and emotions when pregnancy is delayed? How do you handle the pressure and feedback from people on pregnancy? We'd love to hear your thoughts, too so make sure you follow us on Instagram @girlfriendsandgoalspodcast where we'll continue this conversation.

37. Mental Health and Womanhood

Hey girlfriends! Today we're discussing mental health and womanhood. The last two years for many of us has been full of new experiences by force and a emotional roller coaster to say the least, so we wanted to have a conversation about our mental health as it relates to womanhood. We're joined by Clinical Therapist Autumn of The Soul Reasons as we explore: Why mental health is so important, the common areas of focus in therapy and how we can be there for our "strong" friends. How do you see the acceptance of therapy evolving?  Does everyone need therapy?  How does being strong affect black women? We'd love to hear your thoughts, too so make sure you follow us on Instagram @girlfriendsandgoalspodcast where we'll continue this conversation.
