Steph interviews Karen Kleiman, MSW about her #speakthesecret campaign which helps new moms validate their feelings, share their fears, and start feeling better. Over 90% of new mothers will have scary, intrusive thoughts about their baby and themselves, but many are afraid to tell anyone. Moms are left feeling confused, frustrated, or scared about what these thoughts mean. On this show we reduce the shame and stigma and encourage moms to find a safe place to express themselves. This interview is a must listen for all new mamas and we hope you share this with all the new mamas in your life.
