In this episode, we're diving into working mom guilt and stay-at-home mom shame. I'm sharing my personal experience with this dichotomy and how it's been evolving in the past few years. I share my journey of starting my chiropractic practice when my son was just six weeks old to now being at home far more and stepping into the role of "stay-at-home" mom and supportive spouse in a way I never thought I would since my husband took on a much bigger job 18 months ago. We're discussing the challenges of finding balance between motherhood and career and diving into how we can make choices as time and life evolves without shame, guilt and judgement.

[00:00:01] Stay-at-home mom guilt.
