Episode 24: VLM Spotlight: Building Community with Mamis-To-Be with Lily Espinosa

Are you a mami-to-be? Have you built a comunidad with other mamás who are expecting the same time as you are?

When I was first pregnant of D, I connected with other moms-to-be. We were all due in the same month and while all of our experiences were different, there’s  nothing like building a community with them. 

It’s so beneficial to talk, vent, cry, and laugh about the things we go through while pregnant. Our bodies, hormones and thoughts change and we shouldn’t feel like we are doing this alone.

For that reason, I am excited to have a special guest with you today! We welcome Lily Espinosa, a soon-to-be first time mom and experienced Tia and Madrina to 8 wonderful kids, who is soon to be promoted to Madre. In this episode, you’ll hear her thoughts, feelings and emotions as she gets ready to embark on this biggest journey of becoming a mami for the first time. As you may know, I am currency pregnant and what I love about connecting with Lily is that both she and I are ONE day apart from our expected due dates!

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • What makes Lily nervous and/or excited as she’s heading toward the end of your pregnancy.
  • What she has done as she is preparing for childbirth.
  • How important it is for her to build a community of other mothers.
  • How she feels supported at this time.
  • What she envisions madrehood to be.
