Bleary eyed with newborns and messy hair, yearning for connection and parenting help, we found ourselves (and met each other!) in a new mom group. After 3 months of conversation about the angst surrounding tummy time and Velcro swaddles, we took our conversation to a more personal level over red wine with our kids in ergos.
Gradually, our conversations increased to nighttime texts over teething, sleep challenges, and how to navigate the transition to solids. As we began to get our footing together in our new role as Moms, we created the space for real conversation over adult dinner to finally talk about ourselves, as women and as friends, not just how we were moms. Over this dinner, we both realized that there was a need and space for something big and exciting in each of our lives. Lara was ready to pivot her business away from the corporate world, and Jenn was looking for greater connection and honest conversation within the greater Mom community.
From there, over coffee, the idea to create a podcast and a supportive, authentic and thriving Mom community was born.
The podcast is our voice, and the community is where we interact, learn, and support each other. We are not just Moms, we are bosses, employees, and wives. We are daughters, friends, and individuals. We embrace the challenges and opportunities that are available to us in this Generation of technology, social media, and opportunity.
We are Generation.Mom!
Join us as we navigate the messy and thrilling journey of modern day motherhood.
