This week, we are deconstructing our episode with Shauna Armitage. If you haven’t listened, go back and download episode 43. Quick recap, Shauna is a mom of 4 with kids in all stages and talks about her courageous termination during her third pregnancy, a decision she never imagined she’d have to make. Stay with us as we discuss our highs and lows, the many versions of what a working mom looks like and making decisions with the information you have, without guilt.

 Listen as Kate & Liz share:

  • High: Liz has some BIG news!
  • High: Kate’s nerve wracking week comes to an end.
  • What a working mom looks like for us.
  • Separation of work and family – is it working for moms?
  • Decision regret: how we combat it as moms.
  • Hindsight is 20/20, but we make decisions with the information we have now.
  • The importance of us sharing the dark times of our lives.
  • Life is richer when we have friends with diverse experiences.
