Let's stop Celebrating the Mental Load in Motherhood, or "Motherload"

Main Promotional Banner - Twitter

In today's episode, I explore the topic of mental load in motherhood (also called motherload). I share my evolution on this topic and my thoughts about why we need to stop propagating the celebration of mental load in motherhood. 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.

Main Promotional Banner - Twitter

In this episode, I am exploring the connection between our emotions and our mental well-being.

The better we know ourselves, the better we ca…
