Brinda van den Berg

Brinda van den Berg told her story on our podcast almost exactly one year ago. You can listen to her original story. It's episode number one of the show. We'd recommend doing that, but you don't need to listen to that story to follow this episode.

Brinda's original story was about losing her mom when she was just two years old. She grew up in India, then moved to Singapore, and eventually she landed in the Netherlands. Her story is about how she was raised in the absence of her mother, about lifelong grief and how losing her mom influences how she raises her own kids.

In this follow up interview, Brinda tells us what it was like to share her story publicly on this podcast, how people in her life reacted and what shifts and decisions she's made in part due to sharing her story.
