SELF CARE: Putting Yourself First

One thing we hear from moms all the time is that they often come last – after kids, spouses, work, family – it’s hard to find time to take care of yourself. But we also know that when moms focus on self-care everyone wins.

The evening will focus on topics like:

  • The Truth About Gender Equity in Healthcare
  • Better Sex Through Mindfulness
  • Making Your Personal Fitness Goals a Priority
  • Lessening your Mental Load

And more….

Leading Moms is a place where stories are told, experiences are shared and inspiration is felt by everyone in the room. We hope to see you there.
