Let’s be honest for a minute: how are you at setting boundaries? Maybe you need to be more clear in your communication to others. Maybe you need to take action and not give in when there is a little pushback. Maybe it’s actually setting them for yourself and with yourself so you can quit feeling burned out, resentful and have energy to do the things that are most important to you.Fueled by the wise words of Nedra Glover Tawwab, we dig into boundary setting and where we can do a better job to BUILD our relationships with others and with ourselves.MEET NEDRABetterHelp Counselling 10% Discount Goodr 15% DiscountLet’s connect!HERself PATREONHERSELF WEBSITEHERSELF INSTAGRAMMEET AMY MEET ABBY

Mom rage. It happens to most of us at one point or another and can feel debilitating and shameful. But you are not a bad mom. Let me repeat that… you are NOT a bad mom, you are simply a mom that is overworked and not getting your needs met.Like an iceberg, there is much more below the surface. In order to feel better as mothers, we need to get to the root of the issue instead of just focusing on the outward action.In this week’s episode, we break down where mom rage comes from and what we can do as parents to prevent it in the first place. You got this mama, you deserve to feel like yourself once again.More from DR. REAM hereLet’s connect!HERself PATREONHERSELF WEBSITEHERSELF INSTAGRAMMEET AMY MEET ABBYNEW Partner!

Dr. Ashurina Ream (known as @psychedmommy everywhere) is back on the podcast today. Dr. Ream is a psychologist who is certified in perinatal mental health. We covered SO many important topics in this interview. We spent the first half of the podcast talking about body image- diving into specifics about why many women struggle with this and what you can do to start improving yours. Before focusing on perinatal mental health- Dr. Ream specialized in helping people with eating disorders- so she brought a ton of valuable insight into the conversation. We also cover miscarriage- something that SO many women go through, but a topic that isn't talked about often. Lastly, we finish up with the overwhelm of motherhood and what you can do about it. Hope you enjoy this episode- it was an incredible and important conversation. MEET DR.

So many of us are feeling stretched thin and without our normal support nets.Today, we focus on how to recognize your yellow flags and reactions in order to change course OR figure out what you need more or less of.Oftentimes- you aren't an angry partner or an impatient mother- you are just not getting the support or care that YOU need to function your best.We're right there with you and honored to bring this important conversation to light today. Let’s connect!HERself PATREONHERSELF INSTAGRAMMEET AMY MEET ABBYBetterHelp Counselling 10% Discount

Sex therapist Vanessa Marin ( @vanessamarintherapy ) is back on the podcast today. Her first episode (episode 21) was the most listened to episode of 2020...and in this one she brings the SAME goodness.Sex and intimacy are a big part of relationships, but this information can feel underserved for those in long-term relationships. Sometimes as couples, we can let this important piece fall to the wayside as we try to do ALL the things (motherhood, working, keeping up with the house, trying to make sure everyone is fed, etc. etc.).Today, Vanessa helps remind us why sex is important. Not just for your partner- but for YOU. She dives into questions about female sex drive, how to make sure intimacy doesn't just feel like another demand, and how to start to reconnect to this part of your relationship.You can join us for Vanessa's 30 day sex challenge HERE!MEET VANESSALet’s connect!HERself PATREONHERSELF INSTAGRAMMEET AMY MEET ABBY
