Emily Solberg: The pressure of being a military spouse and default parent
Show Notes

Emily Solberg is a writer, soldier, military spouse, mom of two, and fierce advocate of women supporting women. The goal of her writing is to help others feel less alone in their parenting journeys, and she isn’t afraid to share the hard parts of her own. You can find more from her over on Facebook and Instagram at Shower Arguments with Emily Solberg.

Emily and I talk about her journey as a military spouse and mom and how the intensity of parenthood increases when you are the default parent.

She discusses the tough decisions she and her husband have made for both career and mental health and the good and hard consequence of those decisions.

Emily offers honesty and hope in sharing her story of strength and resilience in a difficult lifestyle. 

This conversation is real and vulnerable and is for anyone in the trenches of all-consuming parenthood, whether you are a military spouse or not.
