When Julia found out she was pregnant, she was bombarded with voices in her head around what a mother was supposed to be. In this episode, Julia turns to Laurel, who is on her own inspiring journey of reckoning with those voices and creating the motherhood that is true to her. Laurel never wanted to be a parent growing up because she couldn’t imagine herself fitting into the narrow frame of heteronormative parenting. But along her windy path toward becoming a mother, she discovers there is so much more possible in who we can become, how we love, and how we create family. Join us as we reckon with who we are as mothers in the face of societal expectations and narrow definitions, and what is possible when we do.
