Welcome to the Real Happy Mom Podcast!

As a wife and mom that works full time as a dentist, part-time as a Navy reservist, I am in the trenches of the working mom life.

Because of the challenges and struggles of working moms, I created the Real Happy Mom Podcast.

On the Real Happy Mom Podcast, we interview REAL MOMS to chat about their REAL LIFE experiences. These experts and guests will help you navigate the motherhood journey by providing answers to your questions and concerns surrounding raising children, self-care, confidence & more 

We will have discussions that provide practical tips & resources that you can easily implement into your busy mom life.

"It’s easy to get caught up in the responsibilities of motherhood, work, and life and never stop to focus on refilling your own cup in a way that really helps you mentally, emotionally, and physically. Real Happy Mom podcast connects you with ideas and experts who offer ways of doing more for yourself than just taking a spa day every now and then. Keeping her podcast in my queue gives me the reminder I need to keep returning to what matters most and refueling in a meaningful way that allows me to be more present for my family and my life. Love Real Happy Mom and Toni Ann’s soothing, no nonsense voice!"

Planning Parental Leave? Steps to Have Your Ideal Maternity Leave

If there was one area that I could go back and time in and change in my life, it would be preparing for maternity leave when I had my first son. As a recent grad with student loans and no savings, taking 3-month maternity leave wasn’t something that I could afford.

Unfortunately, the United States did not have a federal paid maternity leave like other countries like Estonia, Portugal, and New Zealand. As a new mom I wanted to be home with my baby, but the reality was I had to go back to work to make sure that my baby was provided for. The sad part is many moms experience this. I was able to take 6-week maternity leave, but I have heard of moms going back to work as soon as 2 weeks after having a baby.
