I live in Minnesota with my husband Jimmy, my 1 year old daughter Winnie, and my Australian shepherd, River. We're expecting our second daughter in October 2020! The Sleep Sessions is an online community & podcast I created to help support moms through the first year postpartum. Each 30-minute weekly episode of the podcast features a different mom sharing her story of adapting to life & sleep after a new baby. The interviews cover a wide range of topics such as birth stories, feeding styles, sleep challenges, work/life balance, relationship changes, mental health and more.
I became a mom for the first time in May of 2019. Even though I took all of the birth & breastfeeding classes and read all of the baby books, I still found myself completely lost and unprepared in my new role. After a series of feeding issues and sleep challenges, I began to feel more isolated and alone than ever. This led me to join Facebook groups and in-person mom groups. Through my conversations, I learned that we were all going through similar experiences but all thought we were the only ones. I started The Sleep Sessions to give new moms a wider platform to share their experiences and support each other through all of the changes and decisions that happen in the first year postpartum.
Thanks so much for your time. I hope you'll join in on the conversation on Instagram and listen to an episode!
