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.

And different personalities have different preferences for how often they have the energy (or desire) to pursue friendship – making […]

Both in how they can help create them and hinder them – and, in ways we maybe don’t always realize! MENTIONS: Book a FREE 1:1 Friendship Support […]

Daycare can be one of THE BEST places to make mom friends. Between the fact that the kids already know each other, and it’s almost a guarantee you’re in a similar life-season and live nearby each other – the factors are ripe for friendship! The problem is, it often doesn’t just happen by passing each […]
