Real and honest conversations by mamas

I am glad that there is now a platform for women to share their experiences, doubts, concerns, unique solutions and wins through this platform. I am a grandmother, and I can relate to the conversations in many instances as a mother and now as a grandmother. Learning never stops.. Thank you Monika for starting the dialogue, sharing the vulnerabilities and getting other moms involved.
I encourage all moms to step up and share their experiences... this will bring forth many issues that were never brought to the forefront... even the taboo ones.
Fantastic !!!!

Finally the real life mom talk!!

Love love love this podcast! It’s so real. So often motherhood feels like an island. Like we are struggling on our own while everyone else has it all together. Especially as a mom-preneur. This podcast helps moms emotionally connect with other moms so we don’t feel alone. We get to understand that others share our same struggles. Yet learn tips and tricks for overcoming them. I can’t stop listening. Thanks Monica for putting this together!
