As mental health and birth professionals, we specialize in the goings-on inside mothers’ bodies, minds and souls. What you think and what you feel is what we do, for a living and as our personal mission. As mothers ourselves, we know that moms really do know best.
Our role is not to tell you how to parent, we just want to support you to make motherhood a little more peachie. We don’t just talk about the importance of body love, we teach you how to love your body (yes, every curve, stretchmark, and dimple). Believe it or not, we are experts here! Both of us truly and deeply love our very different bodies; Amanda is average size and Jen is plus size. What we don’t do is waste time debating topics that divide moms. Hey guess what? Both working and stay-at-home moms are wonderful mothers and we’re not touching the vaccine topic with a ten foot pole!
What we do is tackle the mental health issues of motherhood that society often tiptoes around. We have a deep desire to help you release the guilt that often comes with motherhood and start practicing intuitive self-care (don’t worry, we’ll dive into what that really means in upcoming articles, videos and tutorials).
Our goal is to provide you with real coping skills and strategies including resources just for moms as well as an exclusive online community akin to your bestie.
