Show Notes

In this episode, Amy and Par talk about the mental load of motherhood, its impact, and how to ease it a bit. They also chat with Emily A. Hay from Hay There Social Media about her experience with the mental load as she searched for more equity in her life and relationship.

Today, on the Momsanity Podcast, Amy and Par discuss:

  • What the mental load is, and why it feels so heavy
  • The impact of the mental load (re: walk into the kitchen and forget what you came in for!)
  • Practical solutions to decrease the weight of the mental load, including how the Fairplay method helped Amy build a more equitable relationship with her partner
