Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! I remember being pregnant and thinking that when my baby made her arrival, all the details were just going to fall into place. The nursery was complete, the registry was finished, and I was “ready”.
Except I wasn’t. In hindsight, I was actually so naive and clueless! My guest, Brenna Ruiz has a story very similar to mine, proving that knowing something is vastly different than experiencing it.
Brenna is a self-care advocate, professional writer, and mom of one from Minnesota. She started "What About Mamas?" after having no idea how to take care of her own needs after having her son.
In our conversation, she shares more about the circumstances surrounding her traumatic birth, her tips for moms on how to prepare well before delivery, and more about her monthly motherhood self-care community, Village.
Some big takeaways are:
Brenna had so many amazing insights into what real moms face every single day. I love that she laid out the facts, plain and simple, to make sure other mamas don’t feel alone. Because, mama, you’re never alone!
