Episode Notes

The true answers and insights on how to transition into parenthood gracefully with my natural born leader of a sister, Alison Watson. YES, this is our point of focus on this podcast post Mother's Day being yesterday - but really shouldn't every day be "Parent Appreciation Day"?

Ahem, Yes - Answer is Y E S !

Have you ever wondered how to be "READY" for such a dramatic shift in your life? From taking care of yourself, to almost running a small enterprise? And who is on your board of trustees to help you along the way in order to make grounding and adequate decisions?

Alison grew up in suburbia with many resources at her every reach. She wasn't one that took to babysitting as a young adult, but she was very much so interested in being a "friend", a guiding light for those younger than she. She never set aside the goal to be a mother, she let the universe gift her with this task... Alison shares her unique role of being a modern day parent - OF THREE ! ! ! - and how she went beyond the typical "trends" of how one should "birth".

Hint : Natural Home Births are her staple for bringing a peaceful child in to the world.

Alison shares how to create resourceful habits at home and on the road when typical resources may be scarce. She shares about her experience with breastfeeding and the health benefits to not only baby, but the prolonged health of mom. Alison shares how she balances physical fitness and self-care time, and the TRUE benefits one gets from these practices.

She shares how mom friends - or any community of friends - is huge in successful parenting. Finally, and most importantly, she shares that YOU are the mom that is purely enough for your child, YOU are the mom that was chosen to be in their life, and at the end of the day... all they really want is YOU and your time.

You may notice at the end of this interview, I stumble a bit upon my words... Honestly, I was in awe of my sister, I got a bit emotional... Thank you for joining us on this journey!
