“Well I think it’s amazing that my daughter’s with me—how cool is that? But, I would say that the beginning of motherhood, for me and a lot of women I’ve spoken to, feels like, how am I going to do this ‘other thing’ called motherhood, as we’re busy finding our own lives? But, with some time it starts to integrate, until every thought you have is, how am I going to do this as a parent, or for my or with my children? And, how am I going to be of service as a parent? Your life shifts instantaneously. I was always an activist. I cared deeply about environmental health, particularly for families and children, but then you become a parent, and it’s not that your priorities shift; it’s the amount of intent starts to shift in a really interesting way.”

– Laura Dern, Golden Globe winning actress and mother to Ellery, 16, and Jaya, 13, talks work-life balance in motherhood to Refinery29, May 2017.
