Show Notes

On today’s podcast I chat with Holly and Calisa of Moms Matter Now, a platform for educating and empowering moms in their mental health. We talked about sharing the load, what the deal is with intrusive thoughts, setting yourself up for success, ways to avoid maternal gatekeeping, and more. They’ve created a signature online course called Expectant Moms Empowered Moms.

Welcome to The Resource Doula podcast where our goal is to equip you with the tools and information you need to make informed healthcare decisions while having some fun along the way.

Holly’s mantra: taking care of yourself IS taking care of your kids.

Calisa’s mantra: I can do anything; I can’t do everything.


  • PMADS: Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders
  • Matrescence: is the physical, emotional, hormonal and social transition to becoming a mother.
  • Maternal gatekeeping: a mother’s/primary caregiver’s refusal to let someone else perform care tasks for their child.
