MumsVillage Show Episode 8 : Blended Families

Great news!Another great episode of our show is out! This episode we talk about blended families( step families, polygamous families ) and how people navigate these.

Our guests this time around were Wendy Malinda who is the founder of Living In Step Africa and Zena who is from a blended family herself but is also a step parent. They discuss what a blended family really is, the challenges and the misconceptions.
