I'm Rae Lynn Minke - an educator, writer, and emotionally-frazzled toddler mom…!
I’m the creator and host of the ‘Raise Your Hand Motherhood Podcast’ - a new show about the shared experiences and common struggles of motherhood. There are SO MANY THINGS that we are collectively experiencing or struggling with in our motherhood journeys….and yet NOT really talking about with each other.
I want to help change that.
Have you ever wondered as a mom, “Am I the ONLY one experiencing this?”
I wanted to share some of the results from a social media survey I conducted:
-50% of moms experience worry/anxiety, and almost half suffer from regular ‘mom-guilt’
-1 in 4 moms have had difficulties feeding/nursing their child or children
-30% responded that they have experienced some form of postpartum depression
-1 in 3 mamas struggle with being a working mom, and 1 in 4 struggle with being a stay-at-home-mom (myself included!)
-1 in 3 women are having a difficult time adjusting to a new body image (either pre- or postpartum)
I'm taking my experiences and struggles as a first-time mom, my love of writing and conversation, and my desire to connect with mothers around the world who are also collectively uttering, “Is it just me!?” on a daily basis….and turning it into something I hope you might be interested in listening to!
If you want to stay in the loop, I promise not to spam your inbox…..I'll be sending something out a few times a month, so I can share a little bit about upcoming episodes, and possibly get more feedback, advice, or suggestions…after all, you are the audience/mama that is driving this idea forward! Click here to stay in the know!
In the meantime, here's a little THANK YOU (if you like little freebies)…

That’s all for now…..until next time, Mama!
