AWAS 028: Birth Mother Myths & Mommy Blogs

It’s going down, Thursday, September 17th at 8:30pm EDT/ 7:30pm CDT! On the 28th episode of Add Water and Stir, ABM and Mimi will talk about birth mothers and the mythical narrative that surrounds them in the adoption community. Birth mothers are often cast as “saints” who save infertile couples from childlessness or “sinners” who were completely irresponsible and found themselves in an unfortunate predicament. The reality is far more complicated and rife with a lot of emotions. The hosts will unpack some of the myths and talk about ways to better support birth mothers, whether they choose to parent or choose to place their children.

On the second segment of the podcast, Mimi and ABM will talk about their favorite mommy blogs and other highly touted blogs by moms out on the interwebs. Definitely get in on the blog call.

Finally, no show is complete without the foolery of the Wind Down, the time devoted to talking pop culture!

So, be sure to join us live on Google+ on Thursday night!

Or listen to us from our podcast page,, or on Itunes and Stitcher!
