Episode Info:

Today we’ve got another bonus episode highlighting another mama podcaster that we love - actually two of them. On this episode, I am joined by Dr. Jenn Samstag and Dr. Sarine Boyadjian, these women are both therapists and moms whos started a passion project to create a space where parents could explore what it’s like to be both parents and people, all while raising tiny humans that make us ask, “is it bedtime yet?” We discuss how their relationship transformed after becoming moms and how this connected their friendship on an even deeper level. They share why you should take in and absorb information but then decipher what will work for your family and ditch the rest. They also dive into maintaining your identity as a person when you become a mama, learning how to manage your fear and anxiety as a parent and mom shame.
