Naja chats with Priscilla Appeaning, founder of The Stepmums Club of London. Cilla is responsible for the viral video produced by BBC that forged a tense conversation between biomums and stepmums. In a spirited conversation, Cilla and Naja dug deep into high-conflict coparents, getting ignored by baby mamas, and the cycle of trauma.
ABOUT CILLA: At age 27, I married a man who had two children from two different women- both whom disliked me in very unique ways. I went from all hands on deck to depressed and angry with my husband, the Birth mothers, and my husband's family. Through it all, I developed a platform called The Stepmums Club to help me work out how to navigate the poo of blended families and then ended up helping other Birthmums and Stepmums become just as unapologetic as I am. I am now 32 happily married with 3 birth children and 2 stepkids.
