You were someone before pregnancy – but where did that person go? Motherhood is a gift of unimaginable love and happiness but in between playdates and naptime, you can’t help but miss certain things from your old life and answering to your real name instead of “mom”.

In this episode I am speaking with Zelmira Crespi a mother of 5 and co-author of Happy Mom, Happy Kid. Between them Zelmira and her friend Maria Montt who has a background in child psychology, have 9 children and decided to write a book answering their question, what really happens to moms when they go into motherhood.
