Episode 62: Finding Your Village: How to Build Your Support System

In this episode, we dive into building your support system in order to find balance as Latina moms. I touch on the pressures we face, often dictated by our cultura, which sometimes sets unrealistic expectations on us — from maintaining perfect households to juggling work and motherhood.

We’ll explore ways to break free from these norms, set healthy boundaries, and redefine madrehood on our own terms, blending our traditions with our personal aspirations. I share insights on leveraging both modern and traditional forms of support, emphasizing the power of our community, online platforms tailored for Latina moms, and the importance of seeking professional help when needed. 

Throughout this discussion, I share my personal experiences and tips, hoping to build a supportive network where we, as Latina moms, can find fulfillment and balance in our motherhood journey. Remember, you’re not alone, and it’s perfectly okay to ask for help. Let’s embark on this journey together, redefine motherhood, and build a supportive system that resonates with our identity as Latina moms.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Why the cultural pressures sets unrealistic expectations as Latina moms.
  • How we can redefine motherhood on our own terms.
  • How to build a strong support system while bridging traditional and modern approaches.

About Jessica Cuevas

Jessica is the founder and creator of Viva la Mami, LLC a community centered around Latina motherhood. Jessica created this platform after not finding empowering stories about experiences of Latina moms. She realized that there was a lack of representation in this space and felt there was a need for mamis to share their stories and to learn more about the nuances about motherhood through a cultural lens.

Viva la Mami’s mission is to empower the modern Latina mom to redefine the meaning of madrehood through education, story-telling, and cultural relevance all while bringing comunidad together.
