Mother’s Project is a podcast devoted to celebrating the relationship between motherhood and the creative work mothers do. I’m Ariel Lavery and throughout this podcast you’ll hear me interview creative professional mothers, asking them about their personal experiences with being becoming mothers and how their creative work has expanded while fostering their skills in motherhood.

One thing I’ve learned since becoming a mother is that, although there are now many people telling their stories of parenthood and women vocalizing the difficulties of balancing career and motherhood, the celebration of motherhood in professional creative fields still remains a taboo subject. I hope to shift the conversation a bit. Let’s shed light on what women do everyday and celebrate the difficulties and triumphs they experience.
