Have you been "mom" for so long, you're not quite sure who you are without that title? Maybe you love that title and wouldn't trade it, but you feel like you've lost a piece of yourself while trying to care for your littles? Do you want to know how to get it back? Host Lindsay Aerts talks with parent educator and influencer Lisa Anderson of Thriving Motherhood about how to rediscover yourself if you're feeling a little lost in motherhood.

Host Lindsay Aerts is joined by full-time a cardiologist and mother of 3 young children, Dr. Hannah Raasch creator of the free app Babies Help Mommies that helps moms live happier, healthier lives.  It tracks “mom calories” burned stroller-pushing, baby-carrying, breastfeeding, and during routine childcare.  In other words, you don't have to sign up for an intensive fitness program or download an app that seems daunting showing a mom in a bikini with a 3 month old baby--you can be fit simply being mom and spending time with your children. 
 
It also has a library of articles on how babies help mommies specifically, including the maternal benefits of breastfeeding which include lowering risk of heart disease and some cancers.  The app has wellness features including medically validated postpartum depression screens with ways to get help when you need it (postpartum depression can effect up to 20% of new moms), sleep trackers with ways to get more and better sleep (don't we all need more of that), nutrition information, mindfulness insights, matriarch remarks (motivational quotes about motherhood), and a fun section called Momoirs (a play on the word memoirs) that allows users to record photo or video baby milestones while the app remembers the data. You can download the app here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/babies-help-mommies/id1446633955

Do you pick up your baby the moment she cries? Do your run to her every need the second she needs it? Most of would say yes, simply because we want to be good moms and attend to our babes.

Sleep. It's the ultimate need for parents of a newborn but it's often illusive in those first three to four months.

Host Lindsay Aerts sits down with baby sleep expert Marietta Paxson of LittleDreamers.us to talk about what you can do if you are going to co sleep with your baby.

Nov 18, 2018

Women across the country, including host Lindsay Aerts, are applauding former First Lady Michelle Obama's decision to share her story about miscarriage and infertility in her new book Becoming. Miscarriage is “lonely, painful, and demoralizing,” Michelle Obama writes in her new memoir. Yet, by some estimates, it ends as many as 1 in 5 pregnancies before the 20-week mark. The former first lady’s disclosure that she and former President Barack Obama suffered from fertility issues, including losing a pregnancy, has sparked conversations about miscarriage, a common but also commonly misunderstood loss. Host Lindsay Aerts talks with the Director of Maternal Mental Health at The Healing Group about Mrs. Obama's comments not only about pregnancy loss but also about her marriage struggles being married to a then up-and-coming politician, Former President Barack Obama.

There are many misunderstandings about postpartum mood and anxiety disorders. Host Lindsay Aerts experienced postpartum anxiety and OCD and recalls the common, yet often misunderstood, symptom of scary or intrusive thoughts.

Nov 4, 2018

It's often described as ambivalence in motherhood, having strong conflicting feelings at the same time. And it's totally okay. Sometimes these look like thoughts of I love my child desperately and I am resentful of how much work it is to take care of her. I am grateful for a healthy pregnancy and I'm hating how much pain I'm in. This shows up so often for moms and can cause a lot of pain because we don't always allow ourselves to have negative feelings around motherhood relationships. Host Lindsay Aerts shares her conflicting feelings and talks with Dr. Jule Hanks of Wasatch Family Therapy and talks about what ambivalence is, why in our culture we don't always allow for it, and how to resolve some the guilt it may be causing.  The Mom Show on KSL is hosted by Lindsay Aerts.

Host Lindsay Aerts is pregnant with baby number two who's due in December. As she contemplates this upcoming change, she's wondering if you found transitioning from one kid to two difficult. She reads listener experiences from both Instagram (Instagram.com/KSLMOMSHOW) and Facebook. While there is always a transition adding a child to a family she's hopeful that it won't be as shocking as she found going from no children to having one. The Mom Show on KSL is hosted by Lindsay Aerts.

No one really wants to see their child in pain, physical or emotional. Host Lindsay Aerts talks about how she believes our children need to experience emotional pain though in order to become the people they're meant to be.  Most people know this in theory but letting them experience the hard stuff is easier said than done. She's joined by author and public speaker, Ganel-Lyn Condie and discuss empathy versus sympathy in helping our children through difficult experiences. The Mom Show on KSL is hosted by Lindsay Aerts.

Being a mom comes with many high, highs and some often really low, lows. Even in the course of a day you can go from loving every second of parenthood to questioning why you decided having kids was a good idea.

We as moms hear a lot about not being the perfect mom, but what does it actually look like to be a good enough mother? Host Lindsay Aerts talks with Jody Moore, a life coach who teaches that everyone gets to decide for themselves what it means to be a good mom. Doing so allows you to throw out beliefs that culture, society, and tradition say you "should do" and focus on what you want to be your standards for parenting. Jody walks through how to know if you're a successful parent. The Mom Show on KSL is hosted by Lindsay Aerts. KSL News Radio is part of Bonneville Media and based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

We often say to our kids, "did that boy or girl hurt your feelings?" It sounds like nice thought in an effort to validate how our kids are feeling and help them be nice people. Host Lindsay Aerts explains why technically you can't hurt anyone feelings because their feelings are being created by their own thinking, as are yours. Now that doesn't mean we teach our kids to go out an be mean, but Lindsay talks with Jody Moore, a life coach who teaches a model for breaking down thoughts versus emotions, and why that's so important in teaching our kids how to cope with circumstances in life.

I love my child desperately and I am resentful of how much work it is to take care of her. I am grateful for a healthy pregnancy and I'm hating how much pain I'm in.
