Episode #25 is the 2nd part of my chat with Naomi about body hair and its impacts on our body image and parenting. My guest today is Naomi from Queer Nest. Naomi uses she and they pronouns, and is Founder and head Doula of Queer Nest, where she coaches and supports Queer and gender-non-conforming folks and entrepreneurs through one of their biggest life transitions— becoming a parent! Through support, advance preparation, self-advocacy, and abundance, she helps you become the parent of your dreams. On today’s episode Naomi and I continue to talk about body hair and how the shame around body hair and body image can impact our parenting. We also talk about how we can start changing and challenging these issues. 

Highlights:

1:15 – Naomi’s body change in the postpartum period

6:50 – How we talk to ourselves about our bodies and removing the judgement

12:15 – Body hair, parenting, femininity, motherhood

15:44 – Recovering people pleaser

18:20 – Being connected to the Self and parenting from the Self

22:40 – Not fitting the mold of the maternal goddess

26:30 – How do we change the patriarchy and capitalism when we continue to live in a patriarchal, capitalist society?
