Do you ever struggle trusting yourself and your intuition as a mother? 

Amanda and Sarah have been there. And Caroline will be 😉
Our very special guest Casey Wilson has been there.
We believe we all do sometimes. Especially in the beginning.

Casey Wilson (actress, NYT bestselling author, director, podcaster, and mom), takes us on her journey of motherhood and learning how to trust her intuition as a mother. Her story is truly inspiring and we’re very excited to share it with you today.

Casey’s journey of learning to trust herself as a mother

When her firstborn was just a baby, Casey found herself in a situation that she now describes as one of the biggest mistakes of her life. Looking back, she was not listening to her intuition and ignoring the million red flags. Why? Because she felt insecure about parenting and didn’t trust herself and her intuition as a mother.

I had no idea if I had any intuition surrounding parenting.

She shares her story today and walks us through how she got from there to truly feeling that she knows what’s best for her child. You don’t want to miss this.
