Molly Sims, author, actress, advocate, lifestyle influencer and former model talks to Liz about how she's learned to be less hard on herself after having three children, the positive impact her mother has on her, and why she prefers staying in with her family to nights out on the red carpet. She also opened up about pressures of caring for sick parents and small children at the same time.

Chelsea Clinton, the Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, public health and international relations expert, and former first daughter opened up to Liz about her approach to motherhood, what she's learned from her mother, why she was drawn to public health, and how she's talking to her children about coronavirus.

In this episode, Kara talks to Liz about motherhood, how she talks about body image with her children, the changing conversation around obesity, and her biggest adventure yet—a new movie of her life produced by and starring This is Us star, Chrissy Metz.

Host Liz Tenety kicks off Season 3 of the podcast with an interview with Kristen Bell—actress, singer, soon-to-be children's author, mother of two, and Hello Bello founder.

Additionally, this season, we've invited our Motherly community to share their own stories—and following Liz's discussion with Kristen, you'll hear from a listener about how she co-parents with her partner.
