Being a mom is hard. Being a single mom is even harder. In this interview with Julia Hasche, we delve into the world of single motherhood, from the challenge of ending the relationship with your child’s father, to co-parenting, shared custody (or not having shared custody!), to dating again and ultimately in moving forward and blending with a new partner. Julia shares her courageous story of becoming a single mom when her daughter was only 2 months old, and how from feeling alone, she decided to build a local community and network of single moms, which now almost 9 years later. is a global community! She is now a certified divorce coach and helps hundreds of women go through their journey with greater grace, connections and support. This conversation will be sure to inspire anyone who is on this journey and will help you to feel supported on your path.
