Our brains change drastically during pregnancy, postpartum, and while breastfeeding.

Pregnancy brain..... Mom brain..... Baby brain…..

In this episode, Julia and I discuss the many changes that our brain goes through during these transitions, and challenge you to view it in a different manner. Mom brain has been referred to with disdain and frustration because of the challenges it presents. Let’s shift the narrative, and instead focus on the entire picture of "Mom brain". What it is, why we have it, and how important it can be overall. We invite you to further this conversation with us in The Postpartum Circle Facebook group. We'll see you there.
