Welcome back to another week at The Zen(ish) Mommy podcast. Today we sit down with Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Perinatal Mental Health Counselor (PMH-C) Kate Kripke. We are talking about all things mother related, including how to avoid “mom burnout” and reinvent the “supermom.”
I can confidently say that most moms have heard this “supermom” myth – a mother who puts everyone else’s needs first and still manages to get a good night’s sleep and look flawless at yoga. And yet, post-Covid, “mom burnout” seems to be everywhere, forcing mothers to consider finally putting self-care before selflessness.
Listeners will hear how chronic stress affects parenting, and how mothers can meet their own needs first in order to better parent their children. Be sure to tune into this golden episode where you will hear Kate’s insights, plus her tools for how to break this stress cycle and come back to the present moment.
Hear more from Kate at the Motherhood Uncut podcast or pick up her latest book: Reinventing Supermom on Amazon.
