Ep 24: Reflections On Our Retreat

Season #3 Episode #2

We went on a retreat away from our families. There was tequila, self-love, and lots of laughs. We hadn’t seen each other in person for months because of COVID after being used to seeing each other every day. So it was so beautiful to come together and share this experience with each other.

In this episode, we talk about our experience on the retreat, and some reflections on how taking time away from our families redefines motherhood, moving away from capitalist, patriarchal narratives into something more healthy for ourselves and our families.
