Interview with Melissa Divaris Thompson on the realities of pregnancy and motherhood that most people never talk about.

Melissa is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in New York City, seeing primarily women in their 20s and 30s, pregnant women, and new moms. As a holistic and depth-oriented therapist, her role is to support my clients in finding wholeness — mind, body, and spirit — creating more joy, ease, and healthy relationships.

Melissa helps her clients remember their empowered authentic voice and “tap back into” their true selves. Melissa attended The California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, CA and through that, met my Honest Mamas counterparts, Claire and Sophie.

Honest Mamas is a website committed to the authentic emotional and spiritual lives of mothers. The focus of the site is the journey of motherhood, including fertility and pregnancy. It is an online community that supports women during these transitional and transformational times, when grounded, positive and honest information is vital to their emotional well being. Honest Mamas is a place to be real, witnessed, celebrated, and comforted.
