What exactly is the new face of motherhood? Generation.Moms find themselves in an interesting situation: being both a real person and a virtual person, being both Mom and an individual, so how do they balance changing diapers with looking great for Instagram and their life outside of motherhood? In Generation.Mom’s first episode, Lara and Jenn talk about what modern day motherhood really is.
Modern moms are having their children later in life.
That also means that modern moms have a very strong sense of who they are. They’ve developed a career, where in the past, they typically only had jobs. So the big question is how do you retain your identity while adding motherhood to it? Lara and Jenn talk about how they met – at a support group for new moms, and both of them were wondering if they were even up to the challenge of getting their lives, their relationships back.
There’s often a disconnect between what mothers say and what they feel.
You’ve heard it yourself, especially if your friends had children before you: “Oh, I’m so in love with my baby!” But is that always the case? No, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Some mothers feel a disconnect in the beginning – both Lara and Jenn did – and it’s more common than you think. They talked over wine and strollers about teething, sleep habits, and solid foods, but it wasn’t until they broke down and were completely honest with each other that the healing truly began. They share the story of the first night they were honest about motherhood not just with each other, but with themselves.
How and why Generation.Mom was born.
Jenn and Lara realized what they had together was too good not to share. They decided to create a community of modern moms where they could support each other, be honest with themselves, and find their own identities once again. It’s by moms, FOR moms, and while Lara and Jenn have a lot in common, they also have some key differences. They might not agree on everything, but they hold each other accountable – and they’ll do the same for you.
Generation.Mom is about more than having a baby.
Modern moms aren’t just mothers; they’re entrepreneurs and professionals. They’ve got side hustles, teams, and varied skill sets. Today’s moms are a different breed of woman – self-assured and ready to take the world on, baby on her hip and smartphone in hand. So – are YOU a Generation.Mom?
