“We push ourselves so hard in our work lives and this flows over into our family’s lives. And in my work with young families, I see the effects of this pressure and noise, and how it is getting louder and stronger. Surrender doesn’t apply to just our relationships to our babies, it applies to all of our relationships.” — Pinky McKay, TEDx Talk
Pinky McKay asks, how could it look for us if we stop seeing surrender as a dirty word, as giving up or giving in?
In her work and personally, lactation consultant and author of Parenting by Heart, Pinky knows first-hand how the effects of increasing pressure to be busy and in control affect us all. With gentleness and humour she shows us how to surrender and block out the noise so we can be present and strengthen
all of our relationships.
