E59: Creating Expansiveness and Community Healing

On this episode of Enlightenedhood, Creator of Maha Mama in NYC Krissy Shields shares how she ‘sips’ her practice mindful and spiritual practice throughout her day, how she used her spiritual and yoga practice to prepare for motherhood and when she realized she needed more self-care after her second baby and she had a breaking point.

Krissy also discusses the importance of being expansive instead of inclusive when it comes to maternal health, how to use your intuition for your care team when you’re getting ready to give birth and why it’s important to use your voice and the power of ‘Me Too’ in motherhood stories and why its so important for collective healing.
