Today I had so much fun talking with Judy Tsuei! Judy is a 4th Trimester Body & Mind Coach and author of Meditations for Mamas: You Deserve to Feel Good. She empowers new mamas to thrive in the postpartum phase, especially in finding their identities again, creating time for self-care, and alleviating the pressure to have it all together. Most importantly, she helps women struggling to get their bodies back to feel more beautiful than ever before — as a mama.
In her episode we talk about:
- Her fairytale whirlwind Hawaiian romance
- Getting to the other side of the first year of motherhood
- Struggling through hyperemesis gravidarum during her pregnancy and how that connected to her earlier bullimia issues
- The "creative burn" during postpartum, without the wherewithal to act on these ideas
- Being patient when you want to jump right back into your career after birth
- A powerful Hawaiian forgiveness practice
- Sometimes you do whatever you need to do to survive something like hyperemesis gravidarum, including watching porn
- The importance of building your relationship with your child in your own way
- Having realistic expectations for what postpartum will look like
- The importance of grieving your previous life
- No request is too big or too small during the postpartum period
Be sure to check out Judy's website, blog and of course, book! If you purchase her book directly through her website you will receive a complimentary 45-min Feel Good Coaching assessment with me to find more time in their day for themselves, discover how to feel good in their bodies again, and learn how to reclaim their identities. Sign up for that here. She also has a supportive facebook community group: Hot Mamas and Babes.
