After Bedtime with Big Little Feelings

Audacy and Big Little Feelings

Real talk? Modern parenting is a doozy. There’s never been more pressure to be perfect with social media readily at our fingertips - mixed with total isolation and no help. Where the f*ck is that village everyone talks about? Consider After Bedtime your village. Led by Kristin and Deena - founders of the largest online parenting community, Big Little Feelings - After Bedtime is the place you can go at the end of a long hard day to find your “enough”-ness. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, we’ll maybe pee our pants a little as we unpack things we’re ALL experiencing but too ashamed to talk about: imperfect marriages, miscarriages, managing toddler mania, apologizing to our kids and everything in between. You’ll leave with actionable, realistic tips to make this whole parenting thing smoother - small changes, big impact. In an age where parents need more *real* connection than ever, let’s talk honestly about the hard - and remind ourselves we are not alone, we are not failing. In fact, we’re f*cking crushing it.

On today’s episode, Kristin shares her heartbreaking story of pregnancy loss in honor of national pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. For a long time, miscarriage and pregnancy loss were seen as taboo, best kept hidden behind closed doors. Women have suffered physically and emotionally, alone, for far too long. We are honored and grateful to be a part of a new generation that shares their experiences.

We now know these undeniable truths: there is power in women’s stories, there is healing in sharing hard topics, there is collective trauma that becomes uplifted as we band together and lift each other up with our vulnerability and support of one another.

This is one story, of many, of the heartbreaking experience of pregnancy loss.
