Hey Mama, this is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Mama’s Daily Dose is… of village is vital. Let’s get moving, before we get interrupted.
We’ve all heard the saying, “it takes a village to raise a child.” And it’s the truth. You can’t do it on your own, we all need help. No one is meant to do anything 24/7 for their whole lives. We love being mothers, but you still need a break. And you need that help. And you need that guidance from your quote unquote, village, whatever you want to call it, your support system. I talked in Episode 44, the other week about how we are biologically made to raise children in villages and to have available what they said “allo mothers,” which are people other than the mothers that can help mother, the children. And nowadays in the society that we live in, everyone’s not growing up in these villages. Not everyone has immediate family nearby. In fact, most moms that I know, don’t have close family nearby to help them, to be their village. And it’s so important that not only is it there for the help, but it’s that guidance of generations from before. And people that have been there before and can really empathize with how you’re feeling because sometimes all you need from your village is for someone to understand what you’re going through, you don’t always need something to be fixed, you just want to be understood. So, having that family or that village that you create is so vital, not only for yourself, but for your children to have these people that they know that they can count on. And that you can count on and get support from.
If you don’t currently have a village right now, tomorrow, I’m going to go into a little bit more detail on how you can create your own village. And I know what it’s like to feel so isolated in your mama journey. And I don’t want any moms to feel like that. And sometimes it is very difficult if you don’t have people geographically nearby. And that’s why I created Selfish Mamas Club. Because if you can’t find people nearby, sometimes you just have to create something and bring the people all together. And that’s what we’re doing. We’re meeting once a week for one hour just for you to talk about you work on you and get the support you need from other mamas because there’s no need to be isolated in your mama journey. Check it out. Allyoumama.com and have a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
