This week's episode is a look back at the beginning of the pandemic and how far we have come. We talk about how masks are the WORST to wear but a necessary part of our life right now. And how our maternal instincts kicked in to care for our children when the world was a scary place. Join us for an honest, organic conversation about life during a pandemic.
This episode has a little bit of everything. Vulnerability, growing as a person while trying to parent, why your birth matters, Black Lives Matter, the unfair burden on working mothers, and trying to change motherhood together. We are honest, raw, funny, and real. There's no script, we don't talk about the topic beforehand. This is a completely organic half hour with three working mothers navigating quarantine.
In this episode of Socially Distant Tea Time Kaitlin, Laura and Evelyn talk about the difficulties of navigating the post-COVID reopening. As stores, businesses, and activities reopen and friends and families begin to gather there are lots of new difficult conversations to have and relationships to navigate. How do you set boundaries for yourself? What do we want to keep from the quarantine? How do we say no? A must-listen for anyone finding their way through this unprecedented time. 
Kaitlin, Laura, and Evelyn have an honest, off-the-cuff discussion about whiteness, police, riots, mothering, and what we can and can't do about it. We are all learning, having difficult conversations, and doing it very imperfectly. Listen in to hear our discussion about topics that are difficult but necessary to talk about.
In this episode Kaitlin, Laura, and Evelyn talk about the implications for reopening on mothers. The unknown future largely impacts mothers as they envision a post-pandemic world. How we handle this matters on large and small scales. Tune in for a really interesting discussion about the return to the "new normal" that is post-COVID-19 life. 
We get into the nitty gritty on this episode with Laura Otton and Evelyn Page, both LCSW and maternal mental health specialists. How do we know if we're doing this right? What if we don't like being a mom? How can new moms tell when they are slipping into dysfunctional thinking? What happens when we lose our temper and yell at our kids (or worse)? This ongoing series with two maternal mental health specialists and one overwhelmed mom is an honest look at parenting young kids in quarantine.
In this episode of Socially Distant Tea time we get into it. Breast isn't best? Blasphemy! Or is it? Breast milk is great for babies. But being a breastfeeding parent is NOT easy. And sometimes the best thing for baby is to have well-supported, stable, calm parents. Formula, bottles, donor milk, wet-nursing, and pumping. We talk about it all in this episode!
In this can't-miss episode sex therapist Heather Simonson sits down with us to talk about what sex looks like after baby. How to manage the demands of motherhood while still connecting physically with yourself and/or a partner. 
The good things that are coming out of quarantine, how we are forced to face our fears, and parallels between becoming a mother and the coronavirus. Tune in for validation, solidarity, and an inside look on how three mothers are coping with the pandemic. Join Laura Otton, Evelyn Page, and Kaitlin McGreyes as they discuss their experiences.
