We discuss: 

  • Processing an unplanned pregnancy
  • Making career changes and decision due to her pregnancy
  • Transitioning into working mom life
  • How her business was started and being a momprenuer

Overcome Working Mom Guilt

Being a working mom is hard. The pull of family and work causes working mom guilt. This episode will help you overcome working mom guilt. I talk with Emily, an IT project manager and Ashley, a teacher, about all the things that bring on working mom guilt and how we have overcome those things. 

The biggest source of mom guilt: 

  • Daycare 
  • Sick Days
  • Lack of time

How to overcome working mom guilt: 

  • Mindset is everything! Find the positives in working motherhood.
  • Ask yourself: Has anyone actually said something about what I'm feeling guilty about?
  • Give yourself plenty of grace - Mom guilt can sometimes be self-inflicted.

Navigating the Working Mom Identity Crisis with My Work Bestie

Becoming a working mom was an isolating experience for me. Once I had my “ah-ha” moment of motherhood; that I had a working mom identity crisis. I couldn’t stop talking about it. Navigating the working mom identity crisis is challenging. My work bestie, Patty, was the main person I would talk about this with.

I told her everything I’d learned about identity shifts and we had amazing, honest, vulnerable conversations that would end with “why isn’t there a podcast about this”. Patty is a big reason why I started Career Mom!

Navigating the Working Mom Identity Shift with My Mom

We just don’t talk about it. This episode compares what my mom’s working mom identity crisis was like 30 years ago and spoiler: it wasn’t that different from my modern motherhood identity shift!
