Ep25: Black Mother Magic w/ Suma Hodge of The Licensed Mom #BlackGirlJuiceBox

Being a mother is not easy task---being a young melanated professional mother is even harder! Balancing your career, academic and social life while raising another human being is one act that deserves a round of applause. As a licensed therapist, Suma Hodge, MS LAC has been able to use her passion for counseling and experiences as a mother to bring The Licensed Mom blog as well as Mommy and Mimosa's Brunch event. She desires to help women transition through motherhood while never losing self identity! Take a listen as we talk about Suma's tough pregnancy, her tenacity to give her daughter her best life, and the influence her own mother has on her life! We even take the time to talk about mental health in the African American community and why we need to stop telling our loved ones to simply "pray about it". Definitely an episode to inspire you even if you are not a mother!!!!

Be sure to subscribe to The Licensed Mom blog at www.thelicensedmom.com. Check out her two featured pieces "Don't Shoot, I'm Grieving" and "Why Suffer in Silence" which were both featured in the Arizona Informant newspaper!
