Perelel Lives: Rocky Barnes Unfiltered Postpartum Experience + Relationship Shifts

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...

Today, we dive into Rocky's experience adjusting to motherhood, especially her most challenging chapter—postpartum. We talk about how she manages to have fun with her friends, make time for her partner, and how her relationships have changed, including her relationship with herself.

We hope you enjoy the conversation.
