Can we ever really balance everything in our lives? I get asked a lot how I balance being a mom and intimacy. Because there are a lot of things about motherhood that negatively impact your intimacy, so that is what I am talking about. I hope that you feel validated, and you feel normal as you read this blog. I want you to feel hopeful as well. There are some simple things that you can do to make it all balance out as much as possible.
Today, I’m going to deviate a little bit from the how to’s and tips and tricks and just tell you my story. I think it’s one that a lot of women need to hear and I think it’s important to know who I am and where I come from.
Did you know that almost 97% of women report hating their bodies at some point in their lives? I think that is totally insanity. But it is a reality and I think it’s probably not shocking to anyone of us here. We all know that most women struggle with their body image. Today I’ll be talking about how to enjoy intimacy when you don’t love your body.
As women, our brains are incredibly active. I mean, we’ve got tons of responsibilities. We have lots of worries and concerns. That’s not something we should be aiming for, but it’s true. We’re always looking for areas of improvement in our lives and we’re trying to do good things. There’s nothing wrong with that, but not being able to manage those thoughts that come in and out on a consistent, constant basis can be really challenging. This is why yoga, and meditation, and mindfulness training are so important these days and so prevalent. Because we’re kind of all a little bit overstrung and a little stressed out. It doesn’t help us when we want to stay present in the bedroom with our spouses. So in this blog, I want to talk about the five simple secrets to staying completely present with your husband in the bedroom.
So today I’m going to talk about how to stop your husband from being disappointed when you say no. I’m talking specifically about your husband being disappointed when you say “no” to sex, because that’s what I usually talk about. But this could be for anything. When you say no to family vacation or say no to making dinner or anything. This is kind of a bait and switch kind of deal. Let’s get into it.
In this episode I chat with my friend and “Certified Postpartum Athleticism Coach”, Jenna Dalton!
This conversation was so.much.fun to have especially since I had NO CLUE how open Jenna was about talking about sex, orgasms and all that jazz.
We talked about pelvic floor issues, the awkwardness (and importance) of seeing a pelvic floor physiotherapist, the definition of “good” sex, the challenges of motherhood, how to describe what an orgasm really feels like and so much more.
Whether you’ve just given birth or it’s been over 10 years (like myself), this is a really informative and hilarious conversation that I don’t think you want to miss.

Today we’re going to be talking about guilt. Guilt is something that I think we, as women, know a lot about. We feel like a bad wife or guilt for this and guilt for that. In fact, it might not be guilt we’re experiencing. It might be something else. I’m going to go into that. But let’s start with the one question that you can ask yourself that will help eliminate your guilt really quickly. And then, I’m going to invite you to some action steps that I think are really beneficial for all marriages.
In my journey to wanting it more, I found that people aren’t giving good advice. I wanted to know how to start wanting sex more. Where to begin. So here we are, we’re going to talk about it. The essential first step to wanting sex more.
In this episode, I talk with Bryn, a sweet and COURAGEOUS married woman who shares her story of marrying within an extremely religious off-shoot group and then eventually leaving the compound with her husband.
We talk about a TON of interesting (and inspiring topics) including:
1) How she found herself in this group in the first place.
2) When she started to see how strange it had become.
3) Making the decision to leave and the struggle they faced with that.
4) Eventually leaving and rebuilding a new life for themselves.
Bryn is an absolute delight to listen to and I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
In this episode, I interview one of my favourite people in the whole world. I met Norene while we were both training to be Marriage Coaches (she’s also been a Marriage Therapist for years and years) and I instantly felt drawn to her.
When I started this podcast, I knew that she would be a guest and I was honoured when she said “yes” to sharing her (and her husband’s) journey of losing their daughter 5 years ago.
We talk about just about everything in this episode and while we are dealing with a heavy topic- this conversation is anything but.
So settle in and get ready to feel all the feelings 🙂
