EPISODE 13 – DR ALI YOUNG AND THE PERFECT MOTHER MYTH

Podcast

Dr Ali Young is a Chiropractor on a mission to help mums.  Her aim is to help guide mums to choose themselves, choose a journey that works for their health, their brain, and their family’s health, which will ultimately help them UnFcK their motherhood journey. She was having conversations with her practice members daily about the loss of what they expected with mothering, the loss of joy, the struggle, and the lack of sisterhood. She figures if she is having these conversations every day one on one, then there must be plenty of mums who need this support too.

In this episode we talk about the Patriarchal Motherhood and the Perfect Mother Myth, and how we can take steps to redefine what it means to be a mother in a way that makes our heart sing, without making it look a certain way.
