In this episode of Belonging, I’m sharing the complicated thoughts and feelings I’m experiencing being a mother — choosing to bring a child into this world — and living in a time of climate collapse. I share somatic tools for how I’m dealing with the anxiety and grief of these times, questioning if it’s ethical to bring a child into this world, building community care and knowing your neighbors, and conjuring curiosity to find out what you need to know rather than catastrophizing.

“The meaning I’m making of continuing my lineage and having my beloved child is to support her in navigating a changing world.”
