MWC 184: Maternal Gatekeeping

Maternal gatekeeping is when mothers unintentionally create barriers that hinder their partners or family members from actively participating in caregiving and household responsibilities, often stemming from a desire to be the best mom possible. In this episode of the Moms Without Capes Podcast, we explore the concept of maternal gatekeeping, identifying how it shows up and what we can do to step back and open the gate for others to step in and share the load. Join me- therapist, life coach, and mom- as I seek to motivate moms to take responsibility for their own well-being.
