These are uncertain times... but there are answers for us, mamas.
There may not be answers for when this will be over, and what the greater effect will be, but there are answers that can bring peace, hope, and resilience.
For the coming weeks, and as long as we all need it, I am going to be increasing the Happy Mama Movement Podcast to two times a week, bringing you content that will inspire you, reassure you, and give you ideas and support.
Think of it as a pop-up radio station, especially made for mamas with children young children during the COVID-19 pandemic.
They will be known as the CALMCAST episodes.
Today, I am bringing you an interview with Beth Berry, creator of Revolution from Home and mama to four girls. When this pandemic became known, Beth was one of the first mamas I thought of - because surely if we ever needed a revolution from home, this is the time.
In this episode, Beth shares her views of what's happening, and how we can care for ourselves as mamas during this time. Her calm approach, and her insight into honouring the mess of it all right now, was soothing to my soul - I hope it is for you too.
