In this episode, Kindred Mom host Emily Allen talks with author, business owner, and mother of three, Naomi Fata about two of her essays featured on the Kindred Mom blog. The first is about the power of words, and how discouraging it can be when others speak about motherhood or a child’s milestones from a negative perspective. The second part of the conversation is about mental health awareness, and Naomi’s experience growing up in a home that was affected by her mother’s mental illness as well as how she personally moved forward as an adult.
