Have you ever struggled in your relationship with your mom?
(Oh, sister, yes, we’re going there!).
And maybe, like me, you’ve fretted that your tension with your mom (and yes — that’s a general term, it might feel like a broken relationship, or it might feel like a relationship that’s mostly good, but hard sometimes) is going to be repeat itself in your relationship with your daughter?
Either way, we’re heading into the holiday season here in the U.S..
For many of us, that means family gatherings.
I want you to feel sane, strong and centered.
I want you to feel nourished and loved.
SO, when I got a question from a mama in our community about her relationship with her mom, I knew I wanted to answer it here, for all of us.
And, I knew I wanted to bring on a special mama to answer it with me.
Enter Dr. Christiane Northrup.
If you look up the word revolutionary in the dictionary… you should find Dr. Christiane Northrup there.
Her classic book, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, has been translated into 24 languages and has transformed the way a whole generation of women — and now a next generation of daughters — relate to their bodies. Let me state it this way: Chris calls herself an expert on ‘everything that can go right with the female body’! What a reframe.
She’s a woman who is doing the work in her motherline. Let me tell you. She’s a daughter, a mother, and a grandmother, and one of my most beloved friends.
It’s time to get real about healing our relationship with our moms.
So we can thrive.
And our daughters can thrive.
I’m so excited for you to watch this one!

I am so thrilled to kick-off Mothering & Daughtering’s new season of We Thrive TV with my extraordinary guest Dr. Christiane Northrup! Every other week, I will still be bringing you a new episode where we answer your burning questions, mama. And I’ll be joined by a crew of amazing mother/daughter guests — and yup, a regular guest will be my badass daughter and former co-host: Eliza.
