Welcome, Mother Plusser!Nov 23, 2021
Welcome to our website! We are so glad you found us. What exactly is the Mother Plus Podcast, and why did we create it? We're so glad you asked.
Does this sound familiar?
You were living your life, climbing the ladder, and carving out a career for yourself. You had big plans and big ideas. You worked your ass off and people noticed. When you weren't working, you were playing. You danced, you drank, you sang, you kissed. And then, you met the one. You worked and played a little more. And then, you had a baby, and everything changed just . . . like . . . that. All of it came to a screeching halt.
Maybe you kept working, or maybe you stayed home. Either way, your world suddenly became very small. And though you were NEVER alone, you were always lonely. You silently asked yourself “Where did I go? Who is that tired-looking woman staring back at me in the mirror?” The joy that you thought you would feel wasn’t there. Love? Yes. But like? Excite? Thrill? Nonexistent.
Until you remembered something very important: You aren’t just a mother. You are a mother + artist, a mother + entrepreneur, a mother + musician, a mother + yogi. A mother + world-beater of a woman, goddammit. You can have an identity outside of motherhood. And here, you don't have to feel guilty about wanting that for yourself. You are allowed to pursue your own passions, ambitions, and desires. Not because it makes you a better mother. Not because you're teaching your kids about how to follow your dreams. Not just to bring in extra income for your family. But because you want to. Period.
We are your hosts, Stace & Steph, and we each bring a unique perspective to the table.
Stacey Hutson is a mother to two under four + writer, certified health coach, aspiring entrepreneur, athlete, social butterfly, karaoke superstar, and hip hop dancer in training.
Stephanie Sprenger is a mother to 10 & 15 year-old-daughters, + writer, music therapist, producer, singer, teacher, daydreamer, deep thinker, and reluctant health nut.
Stacey speaks her truth from the trenches, and Stephanie offers hope (and some brutal honesty) from the other side.
Not sure if this podcast is for you? Here's what you can expect.
This show speaks to guilt-ridden women who feel unfulfilled by motherhood—the moms who feel like something is missing in their lives. Its purpose? To help them find themselves again.
Do you ever feel like motherhood isn't enough for you? Do you love your kids, but don't love your days with them? Do you feel like there are 1,043 obstacles in the way of fulfilling your own dreams? Do you miss who you used to be before you were a mom?
Whether you're looking to pick up an old hobby or passion you used to have pre-kids, discover a new one, or finally follow through on that career dream or side hustle that's been gnawing at you for years, this is the show for you.
The Mother Plus Podcast is a passion and purpose collaborative filled with stories and inspiration from other mothers who have been through it—the sacrifice, the guilt, the self-doubt—and lived to tell their tales. You can learn from their mistakes, their successes, but most of all, their ability to persevere despite how messy and imperfect their journeys were.
We'll share our greatest fears and struggles, as well as lessons we've learned along the way, alongside accomplished authors, writers, artists, and entrepreneurs (who just happen to be mothers too). We’re going to talk about the mindset shifts and practical steps you need to take to find the thing that lights you up again.
You’re in there. We know it. Are you ready to find yourself again?
