Ambition, Balance, Discomfort & Collective Support

Brooke Cates blog

An interview with Brooke Cates

Finding one’s calling doesn’t always happen in ways we’d expect. Moms are often made to choose between a flourishing family life or career. Ambitious mamas are sometimes labeled as selfish when in fact they should be supported. Balance is often seen as unattainable and mom guilt is often present regardless of what decisions a mother makes.

In today’s interview Brooke Cates talks about how she found her calling, her views on why balance is possible and why we need to “walk through the muck” in order build stronger relationships with others and ourselves.

Brooke Cates is the CEO and Founder of The Bloom Method @thebloommethod, a global pre+ postnatal fitness method and app. Brooke created The Bloom Method with a desire to empower women before, during, and after pregnancy while slashing narratives that tend to create disempowering outcomes for mothers. She is a Prenatal and Postnatal Exercise Specialist, Core Rehabilitation Specialist, Prenatal and Postnatal Holistic Health Coach and thought leader in the pre and postnatal wellness space.

Hi there! I’m Royah Loie, a doula, childbirth educator, lactation counselor and the creator of The Insider Mom Podcast. Becoming a parent made me realize so many things, one of which is the incredible work so many moms do in raising their kids, work that sometimes goes unnoticed in society. It’s unfortunate because, I truly believe that moms have one of the most valuable jobs in the world .

That’s why I created Insider Mom, to help you on your journey as a person and as a parent. Whether you want to find ways to get more sleep, workout more and feel energized, learn about the best parenting strategies, make more time for self-care, or other topics, you can find it on the blog or podcast.
