Description

Being a mom is hard. Everybody knows that. But we usually hear about sleepless nights and diaper changes, not the profound identity shift that accompanies becoming a mother. Motherhood is a psychological big bang. And yet it’s rare to find emotionally honest conversations about it.

On Gimlet Media’s Motherhood Sessions, Dr. Alexandra Sacks, a renowned reproductive psychiatrist, sits down with mothers and lets us listen in on conversations that are hard to have outside of a therapist’s office. Each episode features a woman struggling with some problem or question—from career uncertainty to sex to ambivalence about even being a mother—and she and Dr. Sacks work it through together.

Empowering, brave, and honest. Thank you so much for sharing this. Motherhood Sessions is exactly what I needed.. Even someone who is still with their partner and exploring parenting as a couple (like myself) can get a lot from this conversation.
