122: The Truth of Postpartum Depression and Anxiety with Natalie Ellis 

by neeta bhushan


Hey loves! Today I’m joined by my dear friend, Natalie Ellis!

“Mom Guilt is one of the things I grappled with. But now, there are things I can’t open myself up to; I have to be clear on my no’s. You don’t have to be this martyr in terms of doing it all with your business and your own ambitions. Instead, this gets to be the next evolution of you.”

In today’s episode, we talk about:

  • The simultaneous depression, excitement, and PTSD of postpartum
  • The true depth of postpartum anxiety that isn’t ever talked about
  • The truth of ‘Mom Guilt’ and how it leads to your evolution
  • Taking an honest look at your emotions during your pregnancy
  • Knowing when you’re making the right choice in a big decision

Natalie Ellis is the co-founder and CEO of Bossbabe and CEO Mama. Natalie has been featured in major publications like Forbes, Inc., and Entrepreneur for her efforts, and has been invited to speak on stages all around the world.

She is a social media expert and has grown the Bossbabe Instagram account to over 3 million followers (in just three years!), and Natalie has generated multiple 8 figures. And as you’ll hear in the interview, she’s the new mama to Noemi!

If you’re a mama bear or are about to be, then I know you’ll resonate deeply with this episode because we peel back the layers of the hushed conversations about motherhood. Heavy, emotional pregnancies? Postpartum anxiety, depression, and PTSD? The majority of women experience these, and we’re diving into the juicy truth of it all!
