Amanda Gurman is an advocate for normalizing motherhood and the host of the Honest as a Mother Podcast. She lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband and two children, Connor and Scarlett. We discuss her experience with postpartum rage, anxiety, depression, and the toll that bringing humans into the world can take on marriage. Amanda shares the intimate details of coping with her mental health, her idea versus reality of what motherhood would look like, setting up boundaries, and working through her own childhood trauma to be the amazing parent she is today.
“You need to choose yourself over and over and over again and that is 100% ok. If you’re not ok, your kids aren’t ok.” – Amanda Gurman
