Megan: I’m a lactation consultant and a pediatric NP. Working in this role as a new mom, I really recognized some of the struggles of being a new mom (or mom in general), and how important it is to support each other. In my career (and personal life!), I absolutely love supporting and empowering new moms on this journey – reassuring them that they know how to care for their baby, assisting with breastfeeding (or the decision not to breastfeed, which I 100% support), and providing a listening ear. And being honest with each other – we don’t need to be “perfect” and it’s normal to feel a variety of emotions (good and bad!) as moms.
This was also what prompted Jessie and me to start our podcast, Mommin’. We knew how important connections with other moms were to us, and we wanted to create a space for women to share their stories – honestly and without judgement. Hearing that someone else has been through a similar challenging situation can be life changing.
