Episode 274: I’ve Got to Do WHAT? Things You Wish You Knew Before You Became a Mom with Amanda Tice

Becoming a mom is like joining a secret club where the initiation involves sleepless nights, endless diaper changes, and a rollercoaster of emotions you never knew existed. But here’s the thing…

no one really tells you the essential things to know before becoming a mom. It’s a journey filled with surprises that many of us wish we had a heads-up on before diving in.

In this podcast episode we’re chatting with Ford curve model and the author of The New Mom Code: Shatter Expectations and Crush It at Motherhood, Amanda Tice. Amanda helps moms tap into their inner wisdom and uncover hidden truths about motherhood to thrive postpartum and beyond. We have a lively discussion about why asking for help is so hard, how we need to keep rejecting societal pressures, and be honest about our experiences, so we can navigate this journey with a bit more ease and a lot more laughter.

So here’s to the moms who are doing their best, one messy day at a time. Keep laughing, keep loving, and most importantly, keep being real. Your honesty and strength are what make you a superhero in the eyes of your kids—and that’s the only standard that truly matters.

So, let’s dive into all the things we wish someone had told us before we became moms. Buckle up, because motherhood is a wild, wonderful ride!

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast you’ll learn:

  • How our brain chemistry actually changes after we become mothers
  • Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, and in fact – it’s KEY to surviving being a Mom!
  • The way societal norms and expectations for women perpetuate Mom burnout
  • The importance of being transparent with your people about your own struggles and success in motherhood
