The Motherly Podcast features honest conversations about modern motherhood with inspiring leaders—who also happen to be mothers. These incredible women, like Kristen Bell, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, and Gabrielle Union, are helping to redefine motherhood, using their voices to uplift women with practical ideas and expert insights. Hosted each week by Liz Tenety, an award-winning journalist and co-founder of Motherly.
Whitney Port rose to fame in 2006, co-starring on the hit reality TV series, “The Hills.” Since then, she’s had her own TV show, a fashion line, and most recently has become the Chief Brand Director of Bundle Organics—a company that makes snacks and drinks that help with fertility, pregnancy, and breastfeeding.
In 2016, Whitney became pregnant with her first child, and shortly thereafter she and her husband began documenting their journey through parenthood through a YouTube series called “I Love My Baby, But…” The videos are candid, and Whitney is courageously open about sharing her parenting fumbles with her followers.
In this episode, Whitney chats with Liz about learning to deal with mom guilt, and the surprising support she’s found from being an open book online.
After their conversation, hear Juli Williams read her essay, “My Virtual Village is Real,” — a selection from Motherly's first book, This Is Motherhood, now available for pre-order on Amazon and wherever books are sold.
The Motherly Podcast is hosted by Liz Tenety and produced by Micaela Heck and Samantha Gattsek. Music by The Blue Dot Sessions.
