The Sweetest and Sweetest Job
Mamas on the Mic
Rachel Olson started The Sweetest and Toughest Job podcast in July of 2019 where she has been providing great interviews with experts to touch on every aspect of motherhood. I love her heartfelt, genuine perspective – making moms feel like they have an ally in everyday life. She talks about having grace for ourselves in those sweetest and toughest moments.
Here’s the Rest of the Interview:
Tell us how you got started podcasting.
As a Mom of three kids, there is still so much I DON’T have figured out. I thought creating a podcast for Moms to help share information, resources, stories and knowledge would hopefully help other Moms like me not feel so alone in the every day challenges. So I bought a mic and started recording interviews with people that knew more about a given subject than me! It’s been so much fun and I’ve learned so much.
What is one of your favorite episodes and why?
I loved the episode about Postpartum health and wellness with Amanda Johns. We talk all about taking care of yourself in those early weeks postpartum. It’s an area of care that doesn’t always get the attention it needs. It’s hard to remember to be gentle with yourself and take care of yourself when you have a newborn that needs so much from you. Amanda shares a wealth of information and resources, I personally learned so much!
Another favorite is an interview with Misty Ryman about infant and toddler communication. It is definitely worth a listen too!
Tell us about your family.
What is your best parenting advice?
To give yourself grace and permission to feel that this is a tough job! The time really goes so fast as everyone says so savor the sweet moments but know it’s okay to feel like it’s tough sometimes, you are not alone.
If you could encourage one mom today, what would you tell her?
You are the perfect Mama for your child or children! You got this and you are doing a great job!
