Maternal Mental Health is a critical issue that deserves more attention and support. By coming together and supporting each other, moms can create a community of care and compassion that uplifts and empowers everyone.As a reminder, the at times cliche "moms supporting moms" phrase isn't just a nice idea— it can be a  lifeline for those struggling. The Military Mom Collective is a community of moms supporting moms because we understand the unique challenges and joys of motherhood. We believe in the power of empathy, understanding, and shared experiences to uplift one another. Our collective is a safe space where every mom is welcomed with open arms, regardless of background or circumstance. We strive to create a supportive environment where moms can connect, learn, and grow together. Whether you're a seasoned mom or new to the journey, you are valued and welcomed into our community with open hearts. Together, we navigate the highs and lows of motherhood, knowing that we're stronger when we support each other. We're glad you're here.Read more about 7 Ways Women Can Support Women by Heather TabersSupport the Show.Looking to be a part of our 50th episode? Submit your questions, comments, and/or stories HERE.

Parenting with Anxiety
"All too often we’re made to think that motherhood has to be a vision of perfection and that straying from that path means you’re doing it wrong. I hate that idea. I feel if we shared more often what we’re ACTUALLY feeling and thinking, maternal mental health would benefit greatly."Join Maura, Nicki, and Taylor as we continue our series of conversations based around Maternal Mental Health.Looking for therapy now?

Teaching and Promoting Body Autonomy

Teaching and Promoting Body Autonomy
*This episode contains content regarding sexual health*"Vagina. Penis. We say all the vocabulary words at our house. We always have. Breasts and testicles are said in the same tone of voice as cerebellum and patella. Since my kids were little, I wanted them to know that all body parts have anatomical names. Vocabulary is not just a worksheet that comes home from school. It comes in all areas of life and is so important in teaching kids who they are and how to be safe.Body vocabulary, body autonomy, and body safety all go hand in hand. Whether our children are little or big, teaching kids about their bodies is so important." Thank you to #MilMC Contributors Alexis and Courtney for sharing encouragement and tips for how to bring up and/or address these conversations with our children.Don’t be afraid to have tough conversations with your children. Teach them how to protect, love, and empower themselves.  We are here for you. Support the Show.Looking to be a part of our 50th episode? Submit your questions, comments, and/or stories HERE.
