Hardy Mom

With 7 kids ages 10-32 and multiple health challenges, Jen's got a unique perspective on how to live well and get things done, even when it's tough.


How does that help you? She shares her tips and tricks that she's learned over those years - what really works and what doesn’t - because you  want to focus your energy where it makes the most impact. As a Catholic Mom, she’s learned that a focus on faith is important to living a quality life, and it’s important she shares how to incorporate that into daily living.


Whether you’ve got physical challenges, like migraines, diabetes, fibromyalgia etc. or you’re struggling through anxiety or depression, Jen can help you live well. According to the Oxford Dictionary, the word Hardy means: "robust; capable of enduring difficult conditions.” And that's what we are, Hardy Moms. Want more?

Today I have a fantastic guest: Carrie Rubin

Carrie Rubin is a certified health coach and the Founder and CMO (Chief Mom Officer) of The Modern Mom Society, a podcast and blog that provides a space for moms to learn, connect, commiserate, and celebrate motherhood. She lives in Chicago with her husband and two kids, a seven year old girl and a five year old boy.

In this episode she talks about her 20 year health journey, how critical eating the right foods (and avoiding the wrong ones) is to health, and how simple dietary changes can make you feel better. They also talk alternative therapies, juggling work and family, and how she gets everything in her busy life done.

-Listen to the episode to find out more-


Carrie's advice for moms with health issues: Don't hesitate to get second, third, fourth, or fifth opinions and don't hesitate to change providers if you don't feel like you're making progress or getting the answers you're looking for. Add alternative and holistic practitioners to your team to complement what you're doing on the western medicine front, to be sure you're giving attention to you as a whole and exploring what might be the root cause of your illness as opposed to chasing symptoms. Don't underestimate the importance of food and its impact on your health and wellness! Minimize or eliminate processed food and eat as close to nature as possible, plus explore if food sensitivities are at play with any of your symptoms. Finally, take care of you first and don't be ashamed to ask for help!

Carrie's superpower is: Connecting people and resources and researching and learning as much as I can about something that interests me!
