An interview with Renee Raina
What are some of the most surprising things about motherhood and the postpartum period that you were never informed about? After having her son in September 2018, Renee @the.mom.room was so surprised by all the things she was experiencing that no one had prepared her for and that no one ever talks about. After sharing her experiences and feelings (with friends and on social media), she learned that so many women experience the same things and feel the exact same way. Renee finished her PhD in psychology in March 2020, just days before quarantine started. While in quarantine with her toddler she gained a large following on TikTok with her mom-related content and started The Mom Room Podcast to allow for deeper conversations about all things motherhood. In this episode we’ll be diving into her personal experiences with birth and the postpartum period as well as some of the surprising things not many people prepare for or know about in the postpartum period.
