Mindful Return

Did you know that our brains are more plastic in the year after our babies are born, than any other time in our adult lives? Amy and Lori Mihalich-Levin often share the same soapbox about how parenthood grows our leadership muscles. And they are passionate about sharing the neuroscience research that backs up this claim.
