The Connected Mom Life with Emily Siegel is a podcast all about learning how to live a life full of authentic connections. Because real connection is all any of us really want. We want to belong. We want to be seen. We want to know we matter. We tell moms that it takes a village. But what we don’t tell them is that villages don’t just happen. We have to create them. And each week, we talk about how.
