Episode Twenty One: Getting real about mamahood
During this episode, I chat to Brooke about her journey through falling back in love with herself and her life.
Brooke shares her personal journey around stepping into her true self. She talks about growing up in a wonderful, supportive environment but her life was planned out and how she ‘should’ be living. She went about her life with that ‘should’ mindset but it left her longing for more. She would wake up in the morning thinking that this is the life she wanted but something is missing. She felt exhausted, depleted and longed for more. The work that she wanted to do was the work she needed to do on herself.
Brooke opens up about feeling so afraid of wanting to fit in and letting that inner critic voice own who she was. She held back because she wanted that external validation from everything she did. Brooke shares about how she worked through letting go of the stories that she was telling herself, how it allowed her to step into her presence and own who she is.
Brooke offers advice about how we can allow ourselves to give ourselves what we want instead of asking for permission from someone else. The power behind catching your inner critic’s words, acknowledging what they are saying then flipping them into positive.
Throughout this episode we discuss game changing parenting advice that will help you feel less stressed and overwhelmed. Like taking care of yourself, carving out your needs and wants. So that you can recharge and be more able emotionally to take care of your children’s needs.
Brooke talks about sensuality, what it is and how it can be in the form of movement, what you wear or who you are in the bedroom.
Listen to this in conversation episode now to begin your journey to falling back in love with yourself and your life.
Brooke Weinstein OTD, OTR/L is here to get real about Mamahood, tips, and tricks to childhood development, and how to live in your mama truth. Brooke is a Doctor of occupational therapy. With over a decade of experience, Brooke built a thriving business in New Orleans called Therapeutic Learning Center which focused on treating the child and educating the entire family on how coping skills and strategies to manage this societal challenges children face.
With life experience, having two preemies, running a business (and household), Brooke began to feel the struggles of motherhood, being stretched too thin. This ultimately led to Brooke selling her business, stepping away to readjust her priorities, and focus more on her own family at home.
During this pause, Brooke went on an exploration of self, and dove into the “why” of her career burnout. The ah-ha moment came when she recognized the missing link between treating children, and parent education. “We as mothers need support and guidance to get through this life. It’s simply too much to do on our own. Having support as a mother is what our children need most in this world to thrive.”
Brooke’s expertise in child development, sensory regulation, and parental connection, led Brooke to begin coaching Mama’s and families through this difficult phase of life. Brooke helps Mama’s tap into their individual strength, teach them how to trust their gut, and support growth in building emotional connections with their children and family they’ve always longed for. “It’s ok to be vulnerable. Most importantly, it’s ok to allow yourself this support.”
