Single Working Mom

This week’s guest, Natalie Nielsen, went through a divorice as a stay-at-home mom to two toddlers. Now, she has designed an amazing ‘Plan B’ life for herself and family. As a single mom, she grieved the life she thought she was going to have, then went back to school to get her bachelor’s degree, landed a high paying corporate HR job, and eventually started a side-gig life coaching business that replaced her corporate income. It sounds like she was able to ‘do it all’ but Natalie’s message is the opposite...she had to let a lot of things go in order to make time to start a career as a single mom.

Miscarriage Grief

October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. Last year I shared my miscarriage story. You can find that episode here: careermompodcast.com/miscarriage. And unfortunately I have had 2 more miscarriages this year. The first in February of 2021 at 6 weeks and the second in May at 8 weeks. This year has been filled with one common theme for me; grief. I think some of the shame and misunderstanding around miscarriage loss stems from the grief we experience. Miscarriage grief isn’t normal grief; It’s complicated. I sometimes find myself wondering what I am even grieving…

Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As a pre-vivor and survivor of breast cancer, Gila Pfeffer is passionate about prevention and early detection. Both her mother and grandmother passed away in their 40’s from breast cancer. In her 30’s, Gila got tested and was positive for the BRCA1 gene mutation making her chances of having the disease very high. Convinced she would be dead by 40, she took matters into her own hands and had a preventative double mastectomy (both breasts removed). 

Now, she uses her social media platforms to promote breast cancer prevention. She posts an attention-grabbing “Feel It On The First” post which prompts women to take their breast health seriously. Johns Hopkins Medical center states, “Forty percent of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women who feel a lump, so establishing a regular breast self-exam is very important.”

Returning to the Workplace

I recently hosted a Fishbowl live with Kimberly Didrickson from Learning Motherhood and Ashley Reckdenwald from Working Mom Notes. This episode is a re-play of our conversation about returning to the workplace.

We tackled this topic from both a COVID return to office and maternity leave return. We had over 900 listeners on the event and I loved our conversation so much I wanted to share it with all of you.  I hope you enjoy!
