Exercising balance in motherhood can feel overwhelming. Some days you’re just doing all you can to hold yourself together before bedtime. Believe me when I tell you that it’s possible to find the time for you.
To be the best for our kids, we have to be the best for ourselves first. Former Broadway dancer, Amy Griffith joins the Plus Mommy Podcast to share how she exercises balance.
I first connected with Amy when we were both speakers at a Birth Without Fear Meetup in Denver, Colorado, in 2016. Immediately, I fell in love with the messages she shares with her current work as a yoga instructor specializing in supporting moms during pregnancy and postpartum.

So incredibly excited to be speaking for @birthwithoutfear today with the lovely Amy of @amy_exercisingbalance . Today my @peachiemoms partner @momofambition and I are talking about #bodyloveformoms from stretch mark to scar. It's such a powerful talk (with lots of laughs as well) and we can't wait to share our wisdom. #bodylove #findyourvillage #birthwithoutfear #bwfdenver #bwfdenvermeetup #takebackpostpartum #peachiemoms #plusmommy
Listen as we talk about real self-care and how to take time to breathe as busy moms – we even do a breathing exercise. During our conversation, we don’t shy away from how messy motherhood can be but focus on how to reduce stress and find balance.
