Embracing the New Normal

BY SIMONE NORTH


As we wrap up Season 1, we close with a story about the drastic shift that takes place when a baby enters our world. Simone North talks about how she came to embrace the new normal that comes with becoming a mother and having a baby. In the interview following her essay, we discuss what life looks like for them now— with a toddler and pregnant with her second. And be sure to stay tuned until the end— we close the episode with an exciting announcement for Season 2!
