TLS #72: Vulnerability, Pregnancy, & Intention Setting with Crystal Palecek (Rue Magazine)

TheLivelyShowwithCrystalPalecek

Today on the Lively Show we’re talking with Crystal Palecek, the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the popular online interior design and lifestyle magazine, Rue Magazine.

Crystal recently gave birth to her first child, Benjamin Andrew Palecek, on April 14th. Just a few weeks before his birth, Crystal shared openly with me about the challenges she’s had during her pregnancy, and what she’s learned about the intersection of pregnancy and perfectionism.

Plus, I help Crystal set some Values-based intentions to help her peacefully navigate this season of her life as well.

This show is perfect for anyone who wants to hear about the intersection of perfectionism, pregnancy, and setting Values-based intentions to guide peaceful choices amidst uncertainty.

  1. Hi Jess,

    I always love your podcast, and this one was no exception. As a nurse working with many, many pregnant and postpartum women, I couldn’t help but reflect on many of the ‘motherhood’ stories you have highlighted.

    It pains me to think of the 1 in 5 mothers or expectant mothers listening to your podcast (and those planning a pregnancy) who will experience a post partum mood disorder.

    If this is something you feel is important to highlight, I would suggest interviewing Katherine Stone who has a popular blog, postpartumprogress.com

    Hugs,
    Suzanne

    PS. THANK YOU for inspiring me to start my own podcast! I hope that one day I might have you as a guest!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comment and topic + guest suggestion! I really appreciate it. : )

      Have a great weekend!

  2. This podcast really resonated with me because I really identify with Crystal’s view of her body and control over it and do fear (a bit) that lack of control that will come some day when I’m pregnant. It was nice to know there’s someone out there who gets it and that I’m not the only weirdo who feels a certain way, you know? I’ll remember this interview and to give myself grace during that time and always. Thanks so much for putting together such a great, enjoyable, education, and thoughtful podcast!
