Baby announcement! Henry joined us in October.

It’s been about four months since I gave birth to my baby boy, and now we’ve got two littles in our household. A toddler and a baby and a business is a handful, for sure. I’m slowly getting back into the studio and back into recording.

I’ll be honest—I was a little scared to get back behind the microphone because I’m not sure my words are coming together. All the things about postpartum I’m living right now, and I feel a little foggy-headed, a lot tired, and sometimes I just run out of steam by mid-afternoon. (“Sometimes” is very generous there.) But the best I can do is be kind to myself, do the best I can, and let my best be good enough.

We don’t have to be perfect. (I’m saying this to you as well as me.)

Thanks for being here, listening, as always while I was away on maternity leave with baby number two.

In today’s episode, I give a brief update on:

  • How the birth of baby number two was.
  • What’s coming up on the podcast (we have some special guest series coming up).
  • The status of the mastermind (applications are now open).
  • What major shift we made in our family that affected my work, and how we’re changing things up going forward.

The Startup Pregnant Podcast Episode #097

Some quotes from the episode:

  • I made a game-day decision when my baby was 8 weeks old and changed the plan. It wasn’t easy, but it was right for me and my family.
  • Thanks for being here and being part of the journey. I’m living out loud as much as I can, and it’s not easy.
  • I’m recording this while my toddler, newborn, and husband are in the other room. If you hear yelling or background noise, it’s because there is yelling and background noise.
  • For the next year, I’m cutting my work hours in half. I don’t know if it’s the right decision. I’ll report back in a year on how it goes.
  • I have to be open to the plan changing and shifting every two months. It’s not easy to stay that resilient and flexible, but it’s worth it.
