Steph interviews Michelle Kennedy about how to make like-minded mom friends! Michelle is the founder and CEO of Peanut. Peanut is a free app that helps connect moms nearby and have conversations across meaningful topics from sex and feminine health to IVF, pregnancy, first years, midlife and beyond. With over 2M+ women using the app, Peanut has become a coveted destination for women looking to connect, ask questions and find support. 

In this episode, they openly share their own struggles with meeting and keeping mom friends. They explore why female friendships are so important, especially during uncertain times. They talk about the awkwardness that can come with trying to build friendships and how to overcome it. Hint: we’re all feeling a little awkward. Michelle also shares the pros/cons of virtual vs in-person connection and makes a case for the impact of virtual connection. You’ll walk away feeling inspired to connect (or reconnect) with other moms and have a game plan for how to do it!

  • Why it’s hard to make and keep mom friends
  • How identity changes and shifts in motherhood impact friendships
  • How to overcome the initial awkwardness of meeting friends
