This week the Mental Health Mamas are joined by Megan Eddinger, aka the No BS Mama, who has the ultimate goal of normalizing all the parts of motherhood that no one tells you about so that other moms don’t feel so alone in their journeys. Listen in to hear Megan talk about becoming a mother at the age of 18, how we can better support moms and why messages during COVID around “everyone struggling” were really unhelpful.
