Today I chat with the amazingly talented Elizabeth Laime of the Totally Married and Totally Mommy podcasts and formerly of the now defunct Totally Laime podcast.  I was so excited to have her on, as her podcasts are two of my absolute favorites that I look forward to every week. She is mom to one baby girl who just over a year old, a comedy writer and wife to Andy who is a record producer. She and Andy host their weekly Totally Married Podcast while she co-hosts Totally Mommy with a different mom friend each week.

In this episode we discuss her experience having her first birth at the Del Mar Birth Center in Pasadena, what led her to switch from an OB/GYN to a Midwife and all of the extreme feelings that come along with the first year of motherhood. We also talk about the benefits of prenatal couples counseling and that although the identity shift that takes place during the first year is a massive one, you WILL get your identity mojo back, in time.  Elizabeth is wonderful and hilarious and I think you will really enjoy this episode!

Episode 9: The Freedom From Having The Confidence to Mother Alone with Kristen Tenini

Today I chat with Kristen Tenini. Kristen is a mom of TWIN one-year-old girls. She is formerly a hospice social worker, but once they found out they were expecting twins, her and her husband decided to have her stay at home and she loves being home with her daughters. In this episode we discuss the challenges she faced as a first time mom of twins, and her experience in the NICU. We also talk about the benefits of telling your loved ones about your pregnancy early on and the freedom that can be found when you learn the confidence to do things by yourself while caring for young children. Kristen was a delight to talk with and I really think her insights resonate, whether you are a mom of a singleton, twins or more! Enjoy!
