285. Why you should understand how a Mother's brain changes during pregnancy and parenthood, featuring Chelsea Conaboy
The back-to-school frenzy is in full swing, and as a single working mom, it’s abundantly clear that there’s a lack of infrastructure to help parents like me—or any parents, for that matter. Where’s the village when you need it? Chelsea Conaboy is a health and science journalist who believes that many stories formerly told about the nature of parenthood are wrong. In today’s clip she shares her findings on maternal instinct, matrescence (or the process of becoming a mother, likened to adolescence), and how to support families. While our societal structures won’t be changed overnight, the more we talk about the reality of parenting in today’s world, the more others might join in the push to improve life for all families.
