“Mom guilt”! If you’re a mom, you’ve likely experienced what that dirty term feels like first-hand. My guest on this episode knows all about it. We discuss how she manages it so it doesn’t get in the way of being the mom she wants to be.
On this episode, I talk to Jaymee Castle from Your Milk Shoppe Knoxville. Your Milk Shoppe is a business started by moms that offers affordable maternity services to mothers from the beginning of their pregnancy into the many years of parenting.
Their goal is to empower and lift up moms by assisting them in planning for their new arrival and also providing them with helpful tools and resources along the way.
We talk about:
- What “mom guilt” is and how to manage it
- Knowing when and how to ask for outside help
- What being a “successful” mom looks like to her
- Why so many moms struggle during postpartum
More about the guest:
Jaymee is the Knoxville, TN representative for Your Milk Shoppe. She lives in Knoxville with her husband and three young children where she works full time at a corporate job. She is also working to grow the services and reach of Your Milk Shoppe to help more moms.
From grade school through college and up the ladder in Corporate America, Jaymee always found a straight-forward formula of hard-working equaling success.
Then she and her husband welcomed the first of their three young children. And she quickly found that hard work didn’t always lead to what felt like a success.
Navigating multiple pregnancies, maternity leaves and back to work transitions, all while parenting three very different babies, has led Jaymee to fully understand how critical it is for mamas to have a strong support system in place.
Jaymee has experienced both sides of the coin – working full time and also staying home full time. So I know you’ll be able to relate to her story no matter your current situation!
