Episode details

Welcome to another exciting episode of Start to Finish Motherhood Season Two! Today, we’ve got something special in store for you, as promised – it’s the Frequently Asked Questions episode. But before we dive into these fantastic questions that you, wonderful listeners, sent in through email, the Facebook group, and our Start to Finish Motherhood Instagram page, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you. Your engagement and support mean the world to me.
Now, let’s set the stage before we get into these thought-provoking questions. I want to share where my mind is at – not too long ago, I was right where many of you are now, just beginning this incredible journey of single motherhood by choice. So, some of these questions take me back to those early days, while others reflect where I am now with my kids aged nine and four, soon to be five. I’m deep in the parenting trenches, and I want you to know that I’m not here to downplay your experiences. We’ve all been there, caught up in worries about what others might say or think. But there comes a point where you gain some perspective and realize that everything’s going to be okay. That’s the lens I’m using to offer my advice.  Here is a peek at some of the questions addressed in this episode:
1. How did you prepare your supervisors and direct reports at work for your pregnancy?
2. How do you politely tell male friends you do not want them to be your donor?
3. How do you deal with the long wait time between thinking of becoming an SMC and trying?
4. How do you find the time to fit in workouts as a single mom?
5. How do you explain your child’s conception story to others, and do people typically believe you?
6. Were you financially prepared when you decided to become an SMC?
7. Is there a distinction between being a solo mom, a choice mom, and an SMC?
8. Do SMCs ever get married, and if so, how does it impact their single motherhood journey?
9. Have you thought about the long-term consequences of being an SMC, and if so, what are they?
10. How do you approach your dating profile if you’re an SMC?
And many more…
Get ready for some insightful answers to these burning questions in this episode!
