Did you feel like you lost a part of yourself when you became a parent? Valeria knows exactly how you feel. In this episode, she welcomes actress and The Honest Company founder Jessica Alba to have a conversation about motherhood, the compromises we make for our children, and how to prioritize yourself while still remaining present as a parent. Valeria shares her stories of feeling guilty when she couldn’t be as accessible to her son as he wanted and learning not to over identify with the role of mother. She listens to Jessica’s take on how to tune into yourself and why she finally felt a sense of home after having kids.
