Create more meaning in Motherhood

A 30-minute podcast with 3 doable takeaways
to make your family life a little better each week


Hi, I'm Rachel

Lover of practical ideas, conversations with kindred spirits, and my two wild children who keep life interesting.  I combined all of these passions when I created 3 in 30, a podcast for moms who want doable takeaways to try with their families - strategies to help us manage the madness and maximize the magic of motherhood.

Before I had my kids, I was a camp counselor for kids with disabilities, a volunteer in an orphanage in El Salvador, and a high school English teacher. Then my husband and I struggled with infertility and went through the adoption process and IVF to get our two miracle babies.

After all of my experiences working with children, and after my long fight to become a mother, I truly believed that I would thrive as a mom from day one.

Let's just say my transition to motherhood was a little rougher than I had imagined...

3 in 30 Podcast
Today is the 18th anniversary of my mom's death. I miss her. I always will. She was a remarkable woman who battled breast cancer for 13 years while raising her three little girls. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀This anniversary reminded me that some of you are also probably moving through you own kind of grief. I wanted to share three special episodes to help support you.💜Episode 013 with @rachel_rebuilt is about her experience losing her baby girl, Daphne. She talks in detail about the things people did to support her during that time. If you’ve ever wondered what you can do for someone who has experienced a heartbreaking death, this episode will help.💜Episode 104 with @annapackard is about how she processed her grief after her son Charlie died of SIDS. Anna is a psychologist, so she speaks about healing after loss from both a clinical and personal perspective.💜Episode 109 with @taffymicheli is one of my all-time favorite episodes because it gives tools to move forward in the midst of any trial, big or small. It isn’t specifically about death, but every one of the takeaways has helped me tremendously as I navigate my grief.If you would like to hear more about my personal story of navigating loss (both the death of my mother and the death of my son’s birthmother), check out the “Getting to Know Rachel” Listening Guide in my highlights or a few rows back in my feed.Grief is an unavoidable consequence of Love. And it is so so worth it.I hope these resources help you, and I hope you will tag a mama who might need them. 💜#griefandloss #griefjourney #griefsupport #griefsucks #cancersucks👎 #loveafterloss #childloss #childlosssupport #childlosssurvivor #momloss #deadmomsclub ...
