Mother's Day was this weekend, and is a complicated holiday for many folks. On the one hand, the celebration of women's expected unpaid labor for one singular day seems trite, at best. On another hand, women navigate a myriad of challenges on the pathway to motherhood, from obnoxious questions about timing, to pregnancy loss. 

Ideally, parenting is a collaborative relationship between two (or more) parents, with each parent contributing an equal amount to the development of their children. We talk with Lindsay, Meg, and Sarai from the Holy Ghosting Podcast (@holyghostingpod) about their experiences co-parenting, both while in religious communities, and during the deconstruction process. We discuss:

  • Co-Parenting Wins 
  • Deconstructing Human Depravity as a Parent
  • Trusting Yourself Outside of Religion 
  • Choice in Motherhood
  • Abortion 
  • Stillbirth 
  • Lack of Structure and Support 
  • Creating Space for Grief 
  • The Myth of "Spiritual Warfare"
  • Not Believing is Not an Option 
  • Pre-Existing Conditions and Shame
  • Mirroring Healthy Disagreements in Coparenting 
  • Parenting Post-Deconstruction
Check out Episode 70: How to Navigate Co-Parenting Post Deconstruction, with Lindsay, Meg, and Sarai from the Holy Ghosting Pod on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
