CAST 058 Keeping A Relationship Strong After Baby Arrives
This week we have one of the very highest downloaded episodes of Mum’s The Word for #2 of “The Best of” series. I have had so much positive feedback from couples about this episode that I absolutely without doubt have to share it again.
Julie Sharon from Balance You shares with us her wisdom about a very important topic that affects almost everyone and is also so very rarely spoken of. How does the relationship change between a couple once their baby arrive?
Listen in and you’ll learn that we all have similar worries, challenges, and experiences as new parents. Knowing what to do beforehand and then if and when things happen is really the key though.

Karen Brody's Bio:
After years of severe anxiety, mother of two Karen Brody walked into a yoga studio and discovered yoga nidra, a sleep-based meditation technique. This led her to create Bold Tranquility, a yoga nidra meditation company for women. As founder of the company, Karen’s mission is to help busy women go from worn out to a well-rested woman using yoga nidra.
The power of yoga nidra meditation
Since establishing BoldTranquility.com, Karen has become an emerging voice and advocate in women’s health and wellness on the power of yoga nidra meditation and the importance of rest to support women’s health and power. She has created an extensive yoga nidra meditation system for women, available as an app or via the web, to help women relax, get some sleep, and start embracing the way of the well-rested woman. Karen also runs Well-Rested Woman yoga nidra retreats and programmes for women online and live and has also written the play Birth.
