The Motherhood

On April 5, 2011, parents came to TheMotherhood to talk about their anxieties and fears in dealing with their children’s food allergies, and – most importantly – to give each other support and recognize they weren’t alone.

On hand to lead the Talk were Lori Sandler, founder of Divvies Bakery and author of The Divvies Bakery Cookbook, and clinical psychologist Dr. Jules Spotts, Ph.D.

As participant Gina Rau said, “It's never easy, but there are so many ways to make it easier.” By sharing ideas and offering support, our conversation in TheMotherhood brought that sentiment to life!
