Perelel Lives: Lizzy Mathis on Overcoming the Postpartum Haze and Coming Into Her Own

Welcome to Perelel Lives, a podcast where we learn about the tireless yet vibrantly challenging role the women we admire most live in parallel to their careers and personal pursuits: becoming and being a mom.

We live in a society that glamorizes and celebrates women‘s careers, the companies they’ve built, and the movements they’ve created. But, what we’ve failed to highlight is a facet of their lives that is far more personal—a side that presents perhaps the hardest, but most rewarding job of all—a job with no PTO, no holiday breaks, no sick days, and no salary. Oh, and it also lasts a lifetime: motherhood. Here, we have real conversations about motherhood. (Not another parenting podcast.)

Which brings us to today's conversation...

Lizzy Mathis, a mom of three, model, actress and founder of The Cool Mom Co., who sat down with Perelel Lives host Alex Taylor for our first in-person recording. Mathis shared how motherhood inspired her career, how she found her voice postpartum, her experience parenting multiples, how parenthood has affected her relationship with her partner, and her experience as a Black mother in America.

We hope you enjoy the conversation.
