Show Notes

PT 2: Adonica Shaw is a mom of three, speaker, author, founder and advocate for women's health who is dedicated to cultivating digital wellness spaces.

This is the second of three mini episodes of our conversation, which took place in October.

THINGS WE TALK ABOUT:

  • The early symptoms of preeclampsia with her third pregnancy 
  • How caring for her third child as a premature newborn impacted how she looked after herself
  • Going through therapy and learning how to reparent herself
  • Articulating her needs and asking for help when it comes to her wellbeing
  • Creating Wingwomen to provide support for other women 
  • Helping others get more comfortable speaking up and navigating their personal health journeys

Thanks to Adonica for sharing her personal health journey as a mother experiencing preeclampsia and how it impacted the way she currently cares for herself as both a parent and founder.

ABOUT MIXING BABIES AND BUSINESS™
I believe parenthood and professional development doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive.

As a social impact movement and community, I'm focused on producing parent-friendly professional development, digital resources and more inclusive and flexible work solutions for primary caregivers.

This podcast is the result of my journey over the past five years bringing my kids into business settings, hosting parent-friendly professional development events and during these times, it's my creative attempt to continue connecting you with industry leaders and guest experts who also happen to be parents.

Mini episodes are released on Tuesday and Friday covering all things entrepreneurship, flexible and remote work with kids.

Thanks for listening and sharing with your network of parents!
