Our why

Connect with other women that are walking the similar path or are a little further along than you are and learn from one another. We connect you with the tools and resources you need in order to become the WHOLE you.
Relate to one another on a level in which shame, guilt and judgement are left out of the equation
Be encouraged on this path of self-discovery with motivation from others, constructive feedback and guidance!

Michaela Rosales has combined her experiences as a wife, mother, childbirth educator, and labor doula to form Honest Talk International, a community for women to find support, education, and meaningful connections as they transition from one stage of life to the next. As a military family of 5, the Rosales’ have adventured all over the world, creating a new home about every two years.  With their frequent life changes, the need for a deeply-rooted community with access to educational resources became imperative! Michaela uses Honest Talk International to meet those needs and embrace her passion to help women live confidently.

Through the Honest Talk community, Michaela reaches thousands of women right where they are. With a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Education, 15 years of experience as a birth professional and 17 years as a military spouse, she shares expert knowledge and resources on pregnancy, birth, parenting, relationships, nutrition, fitness, finding your passion, and self-love. Michaela collaborates with professionals and experts in a variety of fields to offer her audience top-of-the-line and up-to-date information. Michaela is a public speaker and the host of Honest Talk Radio, a weekly podcast where she shares real, raw, truths with women of all ages, encouraging them to know their worth, use their voice, and reach their goals. At the annual Honest Talk retreat, Michaela brings the community together to embrace one another, practice self-care, get refilled and feel empowered. Michaela is passionate about embracing the good, the bad, and the ugly and shares her true colors with her followers.

The mission to reach, support and encourage women to live their best life is overflowing in Michaela. When she isn’t working, you can find her reading a good book, swimming, riding her road bike, or training for her next triathlon. Michaela enjoys sipping on coffee, spending time with her family, and exercising with friends! So, whether you are looking for tools, resources or support, Michaela is here to help and encourage you in your journey!
