I was “first time mom anxious” after my first was born. The first few weeks I would burst into tears randomly, especially anytime I would think about being left alone with Reuben. We had an extremely difficult time with breastfeeding, I felt like a FAILURE, and felt like there was no way I would be able to feed him alone. Miraculously after tongue and lip tie revisions, multiple lactations consultant visits, nipple shields, syringe feeding, bottle feeding, breastmilk and spit up everywhere, pumping, use of a SNS feeder and what seemed like we needed 8 hands to do - Reuben latched on his own at 3 weeks old and I felt empowered but still needed support...
Breathing, developing and setting boundaries for realistic self-care, practicing gratitude, and using movement were all highlighted during the first calendar year of the Momxiety Club Podcast. Today I revisit and recap these tips and practices to help support and guide you into a calmer 2021. Cheers ? to a New Year with less anxiety and stress!

Meet Rabbi Ariana Capptauber who within the span of a few months, became ordained, moved to a new state, started a new job, and gave birth to her first child. Hear how mindfulness, meditation, spirituality, accepting things as they are, and forgiveness have helped her during this momentous time of her life.
Her Rosh Hashanah sermon about forgiveness is what prompted me to ask her to be a guest. And I thought there was no better time than the end of the year, when many reflect on the past year and make plans and resolutions for the New Year, to share this interview.

Survival mode as a new mom can take on a different meaning for each mom. In this episode, mom of 10, Ashley Buffa, shares survival mode is for her. Hear Ashley’s journey from a home in chaos to achieving more patience and less anxiety. Her “survival mode” is very similar to what I call our “realistic self-care”.
