Celeste Yvonne: Challenging and changing the narrative about Mommy Wine Culture
Show Notes

Celeste Yvonne is a popular writer and personality whose filter free approach to parenting and sober living resonates with mothers everywhere.

In 2018, Celeste openly spoke about her struggles with alcohol, and announced her commitment to becoming a sober mom for the sake of her health and her family. Celeste lives in Reno, Nevada with her husband and two boys. 

Celeste and I tackle a polarizing topic in this episode about Mommy Wine Culture, which Celeste defines as "needing alcohol to cope with parenting OR stating (through jokes or otherwise) that our kids are the reason we drink."

She shares her story about her relationship with alcohol and her decision to choose sobriety in motherhood. We talk about the way culture interacts with alcohol and treats mothers, coping methods, and needing more support as women and mothers in our society. 

This is a MUST LISTEN, thought-provoking, life-giving episode that doesn't seek to shame or guilt but to ask better questions about motherhood and drinking culture.
