When starting a family didn’t go as planned and money was tight, singer-songwriter K.C. Clifford felt like she had no choice but to surrender to the devastating possibility that she would never become a mom. Then, just days after finding this acceptance, she got a phone call that changed her life. Join Sarah and K.C. for a real and raw conversation about the heartbreak of infertility, the hope that followed, and the kids who were worth the wait. You’ll also hear the debut of K.C.’s brand new single “Worth The Wait”, as well as an excerpt from the beautiful “Broken Things” , songs written about her journey to becoming a mom via IUI and IVF.
Gimlet Media’s new podcast for moms launches today! We’re popping into your feed to air a special conversation between Julia, a mom grappling with her identity and family history after having her own kids, and Dr. Alexandra Sacks, a reproductive psychiatrist specializing in women’s health and psychiatry.
We aren’t perfect, we’re real. It’s the last line of our show intro and it’s the guiding principle of this episode. Buckle up, guys, as Meagan and Sarah confess some really cringe-worthy mom fails that keep us humble to this day. From a major faux pas at the school Thanksgiving feast to some near-death (or at least near-injury) experiences that still make us shudder, we’re serving up a whole lot of vulnerability in Episode 157. Plus Katie Addiss joins Sarah at the end of the podcast with a mom fail of her own plus a struggle, success, and discovery from her life as a mom of two little ones.
