What The Hell Is Postpartum Weight!?
Why aren't we talking about postpartum weight, ladies? We talked about baby weight, we talked about loving our bodies, we talked about being honest about our bodies, weight loss and weight gain, but no one ever mentions postpartum weight! So you had a baby, and lost the baby weight. Congratulations! But what are these new curves and why aren't they budging? Why after a year of postpartum are you not seeing that baby weight disappear? Probably because it isn't baby weight, it's postpartum weight, and it's back with a vengeance.

Let Your Children Have A Full Summer Vacation
Summer vacation used to be 12 weeks long, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Now, it's so short children are ending the school year in late June and starting a new year in the first week of August. This gives them no time to be KIDS. Why are we continually pawning off our children? They deserve a full summer break, even if that means more work for you, the parent. Children are gifts, and we're taking advantage of a system meant to teach them, by trying to keep them in school as often as possible. It's out of hand. Let them enjoy a summer filled with friends, adventure, camps, or TV. Whatever they do, whatever you let them do, do it over 12 weeks and spend time being a family. Think about it, would you have enjoyed a super short summer? I doubt it.

You Don't Own Your Children
You say you want women to have the right to choose? We want equality? We demand to have control over our own bodies? Then don't ever put your daughters in a position where you are the one making decisions about their bodies. Self confidence, body confidence, and self love are taught in the home. It begins with the parents, but especially with moms. We, as parents, are there to guide our children. It is our responsibility it provide choices and teach our children how to make their own decisions, whether good or bad, and finally how to reap the benefits or handle the consequences. There is a line that we cannot cross as parents, and it's one that's being crossed often..... Children are NOT property, they are individuals. Parents do not own their children, and we need to stop acting like it; immediately.

We're Celebrating Mother's Day Wrong!
Mother's Day wouldn't exist without our children, specifically the first born, and it wouldn't exist with the male counterpart. These additions are what made you a mother. Yet, I see posts and comments every year about wanting to spend the day away from the children - the only reason you are a mom. It's an honor to be a mother, and it's a special day to embrace our role with our babies. Let's use this, and every Mother's Day, to enjoy our families and spend that time indulging in love, not vanity. For more on this and other thoughts, subscribe to Leakytits! Happy Mother's Day 🌹

Birth Plans Are Unnecessary: Why Expecting Mom's Should Consider Less Planning With Their Births
In this episode, my beautiful mama guests and I talk about our birth stories. Some had strict plans; others, like myself, had no "plan." We went with the flow. We'll review all three of our stories, expectations, advice, and examine those beautiful moments to share with you all. Births are a force of nature that cannot be fully controller, especially by the expecting mother. Many Doctors and birth classes still stress the importance of having a birth plan. The truth is they are entirely unnecessary. Women get very disappointed when their exceptionally planned out births don't go accordingly. It can kick start Baby Blues and even Postpartum Depression. New moms, especially, have no idea what to expect - and fear can be mentally exhausting. However, moms need to trust their doctors, nurses, midwives, or whoever they are using as a professional. Birth Plans should be more of a guideline than a plan.

Welcome to Leakytits: Unrealistic Expectations
Motherhood is full of ups and downs. New mothers are lost, confused, and inundated with false expectations. Social media, society, past moms are all trying to fit into a world of motherhood that doesn't exist. We need to start being truthful to women about how life changes when you become a mother. We need to be honest to men about what women need, what the baby needs, and what they need when they become fathers. There are so many trends, but they make parenting a million times more difficult than it needs to be. In this episode we talked about some of the unrealistic expectations put on women as mothers, and the realities of those expectations not being met.
