A Mama Minute — CLAIRE

“Something that is super important in our family is an openness to talk about things that need to be honored and celebrated – all the positive things. But also talking about all the hard stuff and difficult conversations and problems and failures and we do that pretty openly now but I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old. And so I want that to continue and I just feel like that gets harder as you get older and there’s more – there’s like a sense of independence and privacy but I also want there to be an openness and I want my kids to come to me with all their stuff and so I worry about what that looks like. I don’t want that wall to go up.”

“When I was pregnant with Meyer we got bad news when it was the 20w scan. They found a little bump on his spine and kind of fast forward, everything’s okay now but he has this type of spina bifida that we were not expecting. You know, as a mother you just want the best and the best chances for your child especially when they’re babies. You want to give them the best chances that you can and to like, process it myself, taking my own struggles or my own fears or worries out of it for him to show him that it’s going to be okay.” (Watch the full video for more)

“I didn’t have too many preconceived notions, I thought I would just be myself during this big transition in my life but I think once I got pregnant I changed. From the moment I knew I was going to become a mother I became a different person in that process and I think a lot of it was knowing that it’s not just about me anymore, it was about somebody else. As most people are, I was a people pleaser. I wanted everybody to like me you know, if that’s work or professional or person, whatever it was and I think the moment I was pregnant I realized I had to start sticking up for myself because if I didn’t do it for myself I couldn’t do that for her. That was the biggest game changer for me in becoming a mother. That I learned to trust my instincts more, stand up for what I believe in, open my mouth if I need to which was something I probably struggled with prior to Motherhood.”

“A lot, unfortunately. People I thought would have been in my life more strongly now seem to not be there as much and I’ve been finding new relationships. For me it was a very hard time becoming a parent two months before a pandemic hit and I know there are plenty of other mamas out there who understand what that feels like but it was extremely isolating and upsetting. There were lots of things that my postpartum body needed to be taken care of and I didn’t necessarily have resources. Thankfully for me it was a little more on the physical end than the mental end but there were a lot of friends and family that I wished had reached out and had been closer that weren’t. And that’s okay. I think everyone is dealing with things in their own way and I’d say the positive for me has been finding new relationships and maybe that’s just, ya know, your life.”
