Jen is committed to shining the light on the darkest of places, where maternal mental health taboos have been hiding out, trying to make mothers believe they are not enough and all alone. Ali and Jen connected on social media 6 months or more so ago now, when Ali was also fighting her PPD and felt alone.Motherhood understood was a safe community to help her and find light in those very dark places.Ali and Jen recently got to connect IRL at Mom Genes Fight PPD amazing event that Ali moderated and Jen was a speaker at and they knew it was time to do a podcast together.This episode is so real and raw about motherhood, the unexpected, the challenges you face, what Jen faced 7 years ago and how she fights continuously even now to maintain her good mindset and be healthy. Jen is very real about her struggles, how she had to get medication and therapy to help her navigate it all and shares her advice from that journey.Ali and Jen discuss their heaviness with PPD and how they had no idea what to expect or how to navigate it. How they felt hopeless without resources, support and really both were left to feel crazy! Neither pictured this was how motherhood was going to look like, and they want every mama to know you're not alone.Ali and Jen discuss what they both learned, how they got better and healthy again, how much they love being mama's and really share their hearts with each other.Jen and Ali also discuss what's going on with the world now, how its been bringing up some ppd & ppa for both of them, and how they are handling it and working through it.

  • Hi loves! Happy Monday! Sending you all so much love, light, deep breathes and all the good vibes I can send !!

    Keeping it real over here, we are also navigating this new "normal" and all the feelings that have come with it.

    Ali was also under the weather the last week so that added to everything!

    We are fashionably late this Monday, but have such a gem for you to listen too!

    Meet Amy Griffith, mama of 4 and prenatal & post yoga instructor who really talks about our breathe today and the importance of it!

    Wow, she isn't kidding with all of us starting this week! 

    Taking deep breathes alone, can really help re-center all of us and our mind set, but especially as worried, emotional, anxious mothers at this unknown time.

    Amy started as a Rockette, a professional dancer in NYC before she got into this mindful practice and became a mama!!

    Amy and Ali chat today about Amy's journey and her dreams of always being on that NYC stage and how that career came to an end and how she happily transitioned. 

    Amy shares the craziness of production life and being a dancer and how that taught her so much in motherhood.

    Ali and Amy both share how challenging motherhood can be, the lessons you truly learn as a mama but also about yourself.

    The messy behind the scenes of it all, being go getters and more!

    Ali and Amy also talk about allowing yourself to "sit in your shit", and feel all your emotions and work through them and Amy mentions but don't "live there". In otherwards FEEL it, and then move past it. Gratitude practices, journaling, whatever it may be!

    Today comes at the perfect time, as there is so much everywhere right now and rocking all of us!!

    Let's not forget our BREATHE, coming back to us, we've got this mama's !!

  • Happy Friday loves!! Meet Nora, mama of 2,  she is 1/2 of the ModaMob youtube channel, co-creator of the brand Norani and so much more.

    Today Nora is on the show to share her journey into motherhood, her IVF struggles and Ani's. Their 15 year plus friendship and how they've worked and evolved together as mothers, and now giving birth to their brand Norani, and their first product under their Norani label, the swaddle known as the Snugababe.

    We talk about motherhood and how we are all warriors, and how we power through as mama's and our real feelings about it.

    How the Snugababe was born and why it's such a great mom hack & parent hack we all need! 

    We all have had swaddling issues, and this unique swaddle really helps with most of those newborn struggles, with their genius arm inserts!

    Nora also talks about the importance of their fabric being organic and how clean it is for them and being on their body being so little.

    Ali gets to hear the story of how it was born out of Nora's own struggles from swaddling her daughter two years ago! 

    Nora really shares how hard IVF was and how she had to advocate for herself to bring her baby into this world and how grateful she is to be a mama.

    Nora and Ani have combined their passions as mothers and their entertainment backgrounds, and launched an amazing product out there for parents to use and love, but also educate their audience and parents on everything they need to know!!
