As a feminist, I thought I knew exactly what I'd do in a situation like this. It turns out I was wrong.
Brandy Ferner is a mother of two, an author, a blogger, and host of the Adult Conversation Podcast, bringing LOLs and real talk about motherhood to moms everywhere. In addition to writing and fulfilling her kids' endless snack requests, she spent the past decade working as a doula, childbirth educator, and birth trauma mentor, ushering clients through the intense transition into motherhood. The insight gained from watching women crack wide open -- literally and figuratively -- and her own experience as an independent woman who suddenly traded autonomy for snuggles, led her to say the things about modern motherhood that no one is saying out loud. Sometimes it's serious, sometimes it's comedic. Her novel Adult Conversation comes out May 2020 (She Writes Press). She lives in Southern California and her love language is sleep.
