At the DSW "Best Foot Forward" panel luncheon in March 2023, held in honor of Women's History Month, Schwarzenegger spoke about the importance of seeking support while juggling various roles in her life.

When moderator Keltie Knight questioned Schwarzenegger about balancing her life as a children's book author and host of the Instagram Live series BDA Baby (Before, During, After Baby) while being a mom, Schwarzenegger emphasized the significance of asking for help.

She said, "I'm a big believer — I feel like on Instagram we see all these moms that are like, 'I'm doing it all, I'm doing it all, I'm doing it all on my own,' blah-blah and I'm like, 'I don't want to do it all on my own.'"

She elaborated, "I want to lean on my sister, I want to lean on my mom, I want to lean on my girlfriends, my mom friends. I want to be honest and transparent and also say, 'I can't make this today. My kid's sick. She was up all night teething. I need to be a mom right now.'"

Concluding her thoughts, she added, "So I think being able to be open about the fact that you don't have to do it all, you can lean on people, you can enlist help from others and being okay with that. That, I feel, is such a big struggle for women in general, but I think especially if you're balancing multiple roles, is saying, 'I need help today,' and that's okay."
