Main Promotional Banner - Twitter

In today's episode, I explore the topic of mental load in motherhood (also called motherload).

I believe that we have it in us to change the dynamic and let go of being the"perfect mom" who does it all. If we can't do it for ourselves, let's at least do it for our children, so they can grow up in a more equitable society.
