The Untold Struggles of Motherhood (Part 2)

This episode of the ADHD Mums Podcast features a candid conversation with Kaitlyn Faulkner from @holding_mama, who shares her personal experiences with ADHD, autism, and motherhood, living in rural New South Wales.

Kaitlyn discusses the challenges and joys of parenting three boys with neurodivergent traits, managing impulsivity and the need for routine, and her journey to a dual diagnosis of ADHD and autism facilitated by telehealth options during the pandemic.

The episode also touches on the importance of breaking stigmas surrounding neurodivergence, embracing one's identity to model self-acceptance for children, and the struggle with guilt and expectations in motherhood. Kaitlyn and Jane explore the complexities of finding balance, seeking support, and the reality that many mothers experience far more struggles than joy in their motherhood journey.
