In this week’s episode, we dive deep into the notion that we are ‘more than just parents.’ While parenting, especially when it comes to special needs children, often takes center stage in our lives, it’s crucial to remember the unique individuals we are outside of that role. I’ll discuss personal experience in regards to losing a sense of self and how that all ties into self-care. Don’t miss this empowering conversation designed to help you rediscover yourself beyond parenthood.
