#154: Alternative Family Structures and the Family Positivity Movement with Julia Karol

May 4, 2023



Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! 


I am so excited to introduce you to Julia Karol, the founder of the Stork’d podcast, as we delve into the fascinating topic of alternative family structures.


Julia is paving the way for celebrating and supporting all types of families, and it's a conversation you won't want to miss!


In this episode, we dive into some really important topics, including why alternative structures need support, single parenting, and the family positivity movement that Julia is starting. 


As a solo parent by choice, Julia shares her journey of figuring out which family lifestyle was the best fit for her and how that led to the work she’s doing through Stork’d. 


She talks about the importance of examining your fears when making big family decisions, the need to celebrate alternative family stories, and how she’s managed her postpartum season as a single mom. 


 Some big takeaways are:

  1. We should celebrate and tell the stories of families that look different from ours. 
  2. Our families are intimately connected with our values system.
  3. It takes a village to raise a child, but to also transition a woman into postpartum.

No matter which family structure you have, it’s all about supporting each other through the journey.


 And that support is exactly what you’ll find in my NEW program - FIRST YEAR CLUB

Plus so much more! Your first year starts today, so check it out and receive all the help you won’t find in your regular doctor’s visits.
