Paula Gilovich is The Director of Content and Production at ABC Carpet & Home. ABC has event space within their beautiful store, in the heart of NYC. It’s home to some of today’s greatest thought leaders and changemakers such as Deepak Chopra, and Paula runs the show.
I felt as though I knew Paula and her partner Carrie before we met.
Someone had sent me a copy of a story she wrote about how her and Carrie conceived their first daughter Harley. It took place in the backseat of a car in Williamsburg with the help of a friend’s sperm donation. The account was so beautiful, raw and honest… and I knew that any couple that was willing to share so much of themselves would be perfect for our Moms Who Inspire series.
During my interview with Paula, I was struck by her uncanny ability to make me feel as if I’d known her for years. We bonded over birth stories (mine and Carrie’s were oddly similar) and over new parenthood stories of sleepless nights and just trying to figure this whole thing out.
It is their honesty and openness about their pregnancy and motherhood journey that makes me so happy to share this interview with you.
