We have another wonderful guest joining us this week. She is the author of a brilliant new book, 'Mother Brain: How Neuro-science is rewriting the Story of Parenthood' which has received great reviews and has been stirring up the conversation on the transition to being a parent and what is really going on inside us during this monumental period.
Yes, this week, I am thrilled to have the brilliant journalist, Chelsea Conaboy. As an award-winning writer, lecturer, and reporter, Chelsea has established herself as a true expert in the field of journalism. With her work covering an impressive range of topics, from healthcare to social justice issues, her writing reflects a deep understanding and delves into nuances of the human experience.
With a talent for uncovering the untold stories that matter, Chelsea's work has made a lasting impact on both the industry and the communities she covers. With her new book, recently released, she joins us today on the podcast to share her insights and perspectives.
So sit back, relax, and get ready for an authentic and thought-provoking conversation with a very talented journalist and delightful human being.
