Episode 46: Why our marriages feel strained after kids

Celebrated therapist, professor, author, and mom-expert Molly Millwood examines the link between women’s well-being as new mothers and the well-being of their relationships. In our longest podcast episode ever, Molly explains the “whys” behind our most common marital struggles, and offers guidance to help us reclaim our identities, overcome our guilt and shame, and repair our relationships. If you haven’t read her book To Have and To Hold yet, this is an excellent introduction.

Alex founded Hello My Tribe not because she was an expert on motherhood, but because she was a mom who desperately needed support and community. During those tough first months of motherhood, Alex spent day after day reading and learning about motherhood. She learned: 1. She wasn’t alone in her feelings about motherhood. 2. Everything we could have ever dreamt of existed for the baby, but there was a lack of resources for the woman/mother 3. There are many maternal health issues in our country that need attention and need to be addressed. Hello My Tribe was built upon these needs. Previous to launching Hello My Tribe in 2016, Alex was a professional and volunteer fundraiser, raising millions of dollars for non-profit organizations. Alex lives in Austin, TX with her son and two rescue dogs.
