Christy Turlington and Kelly Corrigan Launch Podcast Honoring Moms, Featuring Jennifer Garner as Debut Guest

Model and maternal health advocate, Christy Turlington Burns, alongside bestselling author Kelly Corrigan, introduces a new podcast celebrating motherhood. With a debut episode featuring Jennifer Garner, the podcast aims to shed light on the challenges and triumphs of motherhood while raising funds for maternal health care.

Christy Turlington Burns and Kelly Corrigan, both residents of New York City, found common ground halfway across the globe. During a Learning Tour in Tanzania organized by Turlington Burns’ nonprofit, Every Mother Counts (EMC), Corrigan joined to witness the organization’s efforts firsthand. Moved by Turlington Burns’ expertise, Corrigan was deeply drawn to her cause.

Their interactions in Tanzania inspired a new podcast, Kelly Corrigan Wonders: About Your Mother. Featuring guests like Cindy Crawford, Amy Schumer, Spike Lee, and Bono, the podcast delves into personal stories and life lessons shared by notable figures about their relationships with their mothers. The aim is to raise $100,000 for EMC.

Turlington Burns, a mother of two, founded EMC in 2010 after experiencing a postpartum hemorrhage. Since then, the organization has invested over $42 million to improve maternal health globally.

Reflecting on the podcast, Turlington Burns highlights the importance of practicality in motherhood, a sentiment echoed by Cindy Crawford and Jennifer Garner.

The debut episode, airing on May 8th, features Jennifer Garner, marking the beginning of what promises to be a heartfelt and enlightening series.

Turlington Burns sees her own mother, Elizabeth, as her guiding star. In turn, she has become the same for her daughter, Grace, who actively participates in EMC’s initiatives.

As Turlington Burns looks ahead to Mother’s Day, she balances her roles as a mother and a president of an organization committed to maternal health, marking the occasion with both rest and work.
