For sometime now, I feel like I’ve been the Town Crier.
I’ve gone into the trenches of Motherhood, and heard what women are saying.
I’ve read their stories, I’ve shared my own.
I’ve held the space as they cried the minute they introduced themself.
I’ve gathered thousands of them together to explore what we really need.
I know what’s happening to women as they try to navigate motherhood and life… and it’s time I cried out.
We need a better way.
And matrescence is the map to navigate us there.
We are meant to have stories of becoming as guideposts on our mothering journey.
We’re meant to be inspired and comforted by the stories of other women’s lives and experience.
We’re meant to tell the truth about the emotional cost of mothering and who bears it... and what we can do about it.
Here are some of those stories, both my own and others, to ignite the change we all crave.
What is Grit? And why is it so important? Imagine at 41 weeks pregnant, about to become a first-time mama, you find a lump in your breast. You’re suddenly whisked in for tests after tests and, just hours later, you’re told you have aggressive breast cancer, and treatment must start immediately if you are to…READ MORE →

It’s the ultimate love/hate relationship of modern times, isn’t it? Our love of being connected, and our hate of being always connected. Hundreds of mamas have shared with me their struggles with social media: they feel addicted, they know it takes them away from their family, they don’t know how to switch off. So how…READ MORE →
What if that awful anxious feeling inside your chest was actually a messenger – trying to get your attention, and tell you something important? As so many of us continue to feel the rising stress of day-to-day life, learning how to befriend your anxiety and not let it rule your life is paramount to our…READ MORE →
What would happen if we viewed everything – and I mean everything – in our lives as a gift? How would it feel to know that everything is working out for you, all of the time, no matter how tough it feels in the moment? This has been a life-changing shift in focus for Amy…READ MORE →
Before children, we can be consumed with our own ideas of success and happiness. The world we live in can be very masculine, and the way ‘forward’ is often a masculine road. It certainly was for me. I didn’t even know a different way of living before mamahood came along. It was all about ambition,…READ MORE →
One of the greatest struggles for mamas at the moment is the belief that when we return to work, we need to pretend we are not mothers. To be successful, we have to be just like everyone else, and just like we were before kids. And if we aren’t, we’ll be judged. But how do…READ MORE →
Imagine you’re a go-getting, ambitious woman, having completed all the ‘right’ studies and followed the ‘right’ path. You were ticking all the boxes.
