    "Even right now as I think about her about to see you guys, I get nervous," Jeannie said.

    "It's such a weird combination between being so excited about something, but knowing that the world is a really mean place sometimes."

    "I can protect myself. I can block y'all. I can ignore the comments, but you can't do that with the baby, so this is why it was so hard for me to get to this place to share Monaco."

    Jeannie admitted that her channel has been a source of therapy for her, because it's allowed her to share her experience and learnings as a new mom. Jeannie also credited her mom and supportive subscribers for helping her reach this point.
