Are you dying to be a good mother?

with podcast guest

Heather Chauvin


This episode is a little different because we’re not talking about hormones or periods specifically, but we’re coming at them from a more indirect place. Today we’re joined by my longtime friend, Heather Chauvin, a leadership coach who helps ambitious, overwhelmed women conquer their fears and become leaders at work and home.

Heather is the author of Dying To Be A Good Mother and I can tell you right now, this book is not just for moms but for all women. She details her experience of surviving stage 4 cancer, and how it was her cancer diagnosis that woke her up to a powerful truth – that her perpetual self-sacrificing was literally killing her.

In this episode, we talk about Heather’s unusual response to her cancer diagnosis, how many women’s perpetual self-sacrifice is rooted in “not-enoughness”, why it’s crucial to learn to trust yourself, the unrealistic expectations parents have set for themselves, how you can use energetic time management to improve your life, and so much more!


  • The day Heather received her cancer diagnosis
  • What Heather’s body was telling her leading up to her diagnosis

  • Heather’s relationship with her mother
