In today's episode, we're talking about finding body neutrality after having children. We discuss the struggle to reconnect with our bodies postpartum, and how QUICKLY we are targeted by ads, social media, and society in general to try and ‘rewind the clock’ and fit into the version of ourselves we were before pregnancy.
In the first segment, you’ll hear from a handful of mamas as they share about their body image journeys - both before and after having children. As ALWAYS, thank you so much to these women for getting honest, getting vulnerable, and sharing a piece of their motherhood stories, so we don’t have to feel alone in ours!
My guest on the podcast today is Jess Brock-Pitts. She’s a licensed clinical social worker, turned certified personal trainer, and runs her own online fitness boutique called Enlighten Well LLC. She’s passionate about Health at Every Size, Intuitive Eating, and weight-neutral fitness/movement. This was such a great conversation, covering a wide-range of topics - from disordered eating, to C-sections scars, to the difference between body positivity, body acceptance, and body neutrality….I also ask Jess to share her tips for moms on mindset and mental health, particularly in this time when they are trying to find some sort of body neutrality.

The Piketon Massacre
The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
