18 - Full Time Thoughtfulness with Whitney Cecil of Almanac Industries
So many times, when doing the back and forth between motherhood and the rest of life, we just “do”. That is, we don’t often stop and think about how we do or what we do. We (I) just chug along, going from one activity to the next. I think that’s one of the reasons I appreciated this week’s guest so much. Whitney seemed especially thoughtful about how she spends her days taking care of her son and how that affects her business and creative life. I know that, personally,my "thoughtful parenting" only extends to reflection and this episode helps by challenging me to be thoughtful in the moment. Check out more at hearmotherhood.com! In this episode you will learn: How she got started in letterpress printing Her take on how there are seasons in making and mothering interact How her toddler is becoming a mini chef The give and take between what you want to be and what you actually are The attention span of a toddler and how she works at working at home while keeping him occupied (a reference to episode 4) Why rushing is enemy number and how she and her son have started tackling this issue. That tiny emails are her balance strategy Our theory on the superpower of grandparents

17 - Creativity and the City with Love and Victory's Meg Moorhouse
HearMotherhood.com Quite a few times in the recent past I've heard people saying, "I loved that episode - I could tell that your guest and I would totally be friends!" And I adore that. I really appreciate that, during these conversations, you're able to get a glimpse of the woman behind the artistic talent and creative drive. Ironically, it's as I get further into this motherhood thing, that I'm beginning to appreciate the value of friendship more and more. This is a value that this episode's guest Meg Moorhouse of Love and Victory also appreciates and has intentionally cultivated alongside her creative business. If I lived in Brooklyn, Meg and I would totally be friends. After listening to this episode I bet you'll find yourself saying the same thing. Check out the Creative Canvas at Hear Motherhood.

15 - Productivity Tips with Amy Clark of MomAdvice.com
Check out the all the details on hearmotherhood.com Amy of MomAdvice.com is one of those women who it's easy to be amazed by. I've been on a Harry Potter streak lately and after looking at everything that Amy makes happen (the Sundays With Writers series, grew her site by 4 million visits, two beautiful creative kids, the list goes on) it's easy to wonder if she has a Hermione inspired Time Turner so that she's able to be two places at once. Her actual solution is much better than magic. By setting up some basic parameters for herself, taking advantage of technology hacks, and knowing when to ask for help, Amy has managed to immerse herself in a creative career that allows her to take care of her family and her career in a unique way.

Hi & thanks for listening! Check out all of the creative mama goodness at hearmotherhood.com In past episodes of Hear Motherhood we often talked about the guest’s children but in this this episode we go straight to the source and talk to Jennifer’s kids: Ellie and Jonah.

Feedback? hearmotherhood.com Imagine a personal letter written directly to you, addressing your exact struggles, sent at the exact time you needed to receive the advice within. That feeling: the relief, the comfort, the gratitude, the hope, the encouragement, that was the exact thing I felt when I first encountered the Mother Manifesto. If memory serves, there were tears involved.Exhaustion, happiness, sadness...take your pick. At that point, only weeks into my journey as a mom, reading that post connected to the Mother Manifesto was a lifeline that helped ground me in what I knew to be true... but was too dazed to remember. In this episode, I talk with the woman who started this social media movement to see how she handles the storms of motherhood.

9 - My Birth Story & The 3 Types of Women Every Creative Woman Needs in Her Life
Thanks for listening to Hear Motherhood. Isn’t it funny how a series of moments in your life can have so much impact that you remember it with the intensity and detail of a favorite movie scene? Those moments when, because of the abilities of our bodies to truly soak up the important times, you are able to, in a way, detach yourself from the memory and see it as someone else may. That’s exactly the experience I felt like I was given as a part of my birth story. While not a recounting of my full childbirth experience (check the Links and Resources section for more on that) this episode zeros in on the few minutes of the “pushing” part of labor. In this episode, I also talk about how the nurses who were at my side were perfect examples of how women can support other women. In this episode you’ll learn: Why stories are so important to humans. My reaction to having approximately a dozen people in the room while I was having a baby. How the sweetness of a student nurse encouraged me with both her sweetness and inexperience How the step-by-step procedures of a more experienced nurse guided me Why I “got stuck” during my birth process The benefit to having a stern “drill sergeant” helped me get un-stuck
