The Motherhood Village Podcast

The Motherhood Village Podcast

Welcome to The Motherhood Village podcast! The host Nicole Cumberbatch is a Mother, Corporate Career VP turned Mompreneur, Published Author, and Speaker. After Nicole's son was born in 2017, she struggled with her career identity, postpartum anxiety, and balancing life with a newborn. She felt there was a need to have open and honest conversations about motherhood and the challenges mother’s face; so, she created her podcast, in 2019, and it's been a labor of love, for Nicole, to bring these powerful conversations to the podcast world! The mission of The Motherhood Village podcast is to educate and empower mothers with informative and impactful conversations. Nicole believes that it takes a village to raise a child, but most importantly it takes a village to uplift a mother. Consider this podcast as part of your motherhood village. All mothers know what's best for their families, but there is something special about hearing stories you can relate to and connecting with people that you can learn from. Nicole wants to hear from her listeners so please send any questions or comments to themotherhoodvillage1@gmail.com. And you may learn more about The Motherhood Village at www.themotherhoodvillage.com.
