Ep. 5: We Get It From Our Mama
It's a Hey, Sis! first that we hope will become a regular thing: We recorded the episode sitting right next to each other instead of being 3,000 miles apart. And we did it in Vegas, just to add another sprinkle of fun over everything. In town with the rest of the family to celebrate our mother's glorious 70th birthday, we tackle the very big and important topic of motherhood, the seriousness of postpartum depression, and the power of compassion and community (even online) for mothers everywhere. Stuff we mentioned: Here's the essay that model, cookbook author and new mom Chrissy Teigen penned for Glamour about her own PPD and anxiety. Here's a link to former CNN and NPR journo turned "global expert on modern dads at work" Josh Levs' site. And here's how to find out more about Tessera Collective, a mental health empowerment and community for women of color.
