Intimacy, Sexuality, and Connection in Parenthood

 

 

Hey guys! We are here today for a very requested episode about how to connect with your partner and what intimacy really looks like after having kids. I hung out on this episode with Michaela Boehm, a psychologist with extensive training in the yogic arts. She is fascinated by the intersection of relationships, sexuality, and the body. Specifically, she is driven by the quest to give people information in the realm of relationships, how their bodies work, and how to connect with their own bodies. Michaela has done more than 40,000 one-on-one client sessions in her career. Both focused on the feeling domain and the sexual, sensual domain so that all of her clients are...

Getting real about mom guilt, with Kristen Mittler

 

 

Today on Voices of Your Village, we are getting real about mom guilt - that inevitable feeling felt by so many mamas out there. This is one issue that seems to truly be gender-specific; I chatted with a bunch of dads in preparation for this episode and came to this conclusion. In this episode, I got to hang out with my friend Kristen, stay-at-home mama of four, and chat all about this hot topic - what it is, why it’s happening, and what you can do about it. 

Mom guilt is felt by both working moms and stay-at-home moms alike. Kristen worked full time up until the point that her oldest kiddo was five, and then became a stay-at-home mom, so she can certainly attest...
