You have heard of childcare. Even eldercare, but how about mothercare?

My guest today guides new and veteran mothers alike through the best practices to care for themselves as they care for their children.

As a new mom, she would have described her entry to motherhood as a failure to thrive.

Her transition to maternal life was a messy, painful journey.

But she found that the birth of a mother deserves to be tended to in much the same way as the birth of a baby, with attention, devotion and the deepest kind of love.

Dayna M. Kurtz’s Favorite Quote: "In giving birth to our babies, we may find that we give birth to new possibilities within ourselves." - Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn

If Dayna Kurtz was to get a tattoo with one word that she valued, what would it be? Perhaps the word "Atman," a Sanksrit word meaning "inner self" or "soul."

“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.”

This is one of my favorite quotes from Gandhi.

Let’s focus on those first two sentences. “Your beliefs become your thoughts,

Your thoughts become your words.

If this is true, then we should put great effort into training our thoughts and our words to create our destiny.

I have been a self development junkie for decades but the one thing I did not buy into were affirmations.

In this episode, I will tell you why I changed my mind.

And why I think affirmations are great for kids.

If you find yourself running away from fear, you’re running in the wrong direction.

Fear demands that we move toward it, face it and hear its messages.

When we fail to do this, the price is chronic anxiety, sleeplessness, damaged relationships, skyrocketing pharmaceutical use, and more.

In her enlightening new book Joy from Fear, my guest explains that fear is not the enemy we thought it was; fear, when faced with awareness, is the powerful ally and best friend we all need.

We joke about mommy juice or mommy needs wine.

But it’s really not a joke.

I’m hearing from more and more moms that it’s actually quite a problem.

Mommy drinking may be normalizing alcoholism.

But how do you know if its a problem for you?

Today, I interview Rosemary O’Connor, author of A Sober Mom’s Guide To Recovery.

You will hear about how she hit rock bottom and rebuilt a wonderful life without alcohol.
