Brandy grew up in a traditional household for the time. Her Dad worked outside the home and her mother was a stay at home until she returned to school years later and became an RN. She feels good about being brought up in a family with strong work ethics and with a philosophy that said: family is everything. She is the middle child, with brother 4 years older and another brother 4 years younger than her. Brandy made me laugh when she revealed that as a youngster she wanted to own a candy store. As a young adult, she wanted to be a lawyer, however, ultimately went to school and became educated in HR work. There was something about everything being black and white that really attracted me to the law. However, I eventually became involved with HR and started my own content writing firm and Mom-mentum became a client of mine. I Was member first after the birth of my second baby. Had first baby and allow as okay and had lots of control and 5 yers later, experiencedm ore of a challenge than having the fist child. Looking for support and like minded mothers that we could help me through this confusing and challenging time i my life I fell in love with org., value and missio of entired organiation. Think the second time around she found it harded to have control I wanted to be a supermom and pinterest crafts and dinner and trying to do it all with the second child, reality just hit me really hard I think, Brandy was surprised to learn that her mother did not breastfeed. I am a planner because things don’t come naturally and I like to practice at things. Because I could not practice breastfeeding ahead of time, to so I read and researched and took classes, taking notes, highlighting articles. I had pictures and arrows and diagrams. I was really nervouse about not being able to “get it” largely because I could not practice it first. With all of my anxiety, my early breastfeeding, it went so easy. It was comfortable, my baby thrived, gain well and met all developmental milestones. I returned back to work at 10 weeks and this was another transitioned that she became anxious about. Listen to the show as Brandy shares how she prepared for this next transition.
