Why We MUST Talk About How We Really Feel About Parenting with Rachel Bailey

Parenting. Let’s talk about it. Whether your child is 6 days or 6 years old parenting can lead to a mix of feelings from love and joy, to judgement, expectation, and frustration. Sometimes this can leave you feeling not so great about being a parent.

In this week’s episode of Yoga| Birth| Babies I speak with Rachel Bailey, a parenting specialist, mother of 2, and therapist. We dive into what it really is to be a parent nowadays. Rachel provides actionable steps we can take when we feel discomfort in the parenting role from journaling, to mindset shifts, to teachable moments.

It’s a wonderful conversation that I think you’re going to get a lot out of!

In this episode you will learn:

  • Learn about Rachel and how she got into working with parents. 
  • Why we are so afraid to talk about how we really feel about parenting.
  • Why it’s so important to talk about. How our children and ourselves can benefit from this practice.
