  1. So glad you found someone else to do this with, and a great interview. I was listening with baited breath as she ran through her expectations, and trying so hard to remember that feeling of not-knowingness. Of expectations that are broad brush strokes instead of details and realities. This is going to be a good series!

    One thing – the recording ends before I think it’s meant to…I think a few minutes are missing off the end?

  3. This is a great interview. I am sorry that the first reactions to the pregnancy news were not warm or supportive. I can imagine it must have been such a tumultuous time. The “life plan” changed in a big way, people that were supposed to be supportive were harsh… big physical, emotional, and life changes. I really hope she gets the love and support that she needs and deserves. Mothers need to be mothered in their mothering (no matter what age!)

  4. I’m a huge fan of your podcast ( always) but I’m especially thrilled to hear from a young mother. I’m 24 and I have a 2month old suprise baby. I wish I had heard this earlier. It was very uplifting to hear another person talk about how isolating motherhood can be, yet also that you are simultaneously warmly welcomed into an entirely new identity that you never expected to have.

    I love remembering how naive The first months of pregnancy can be. Listening to someone embark on this “huge adventure” was a very healing experience! I’d love to hear more about early motherhood and young parents! It is sooo incredibly lonely being a young mother. It seemslike there is no one you can relate to in your community. There isn’t a place for us. None of our TV shows, music, or movies contain characters or plot lines we can identify with. When a woman my age gets pregnant on TV it’s an episode about “her life being over”..

    I’d like to think our lives are not over!
