EP41. Renee chats with licensed therapist, Jenna Overbaugh. Jenna tells us about her own experience with anxiety and OCD in pregnancy and motherhood. She explains why fear makes sense in context of parenting, how to know whether your anxiety/OCD symptoms are normal, adaptive, or functional, as opposed to problematic. Jenna gives us practical things we can do at home to ease our anxiety, and describes what professional treatment is like.
