Expectations vs Realities of Motherhood with Heather MacFadyen

Two Pink Lines Pod

I get to introduce you to one of my favorite podcast hosts -- Heather MacFadyen! She is the host of Don't Mom Alone. Heather shares with us the story of her unplanned 3rd son. Even though she had always wanted to be a mom she struggled with the realities of being a mom verses the expectations she had held. I love how honest she is about dealing with anger as a mom and for sharing her journey of healing. And, of course, we discuss solid tips on connecting to groups and putting yourself out there if you are a lonely mom. Go listen to her show and check out the Don't Mom Alone Podcast Club.
