Today, MMA Athlete and mother, Molly Lindsay, joins me and she is out to be a game-changer in the world of martial arts. She’s passionate about advocating for women and mothers within the sport with a desire to create more support and awareness surrounding mental health struggles, sexism, and returning to the sport postpartum. I have no doubt she is going to go on to change the game!

In this episode, Molly shares with us about her experience as a female MMA fighter and the struggle it has been to find a supportive gym that does not harbor a toxic environment. She tells us of her pregnancy, beautiful home birth, and her experience with Pelvic Organ Prolapse postpartum and how she felt frustrated with the lack of support and education surrounding it. She has such a strong spirit and is an amazing example of the fact that ATHLETICISM DOES NOT END WHEN MOTHERHOOD BEGINS.

You can find Molly on Instagram at @molly_lindsay. Stay tuned for her free e-book, The Ultimate Girl’s Guide for MMA, as well as an additional e-book for male coaches coaching female fighters.
