There are many aspects of Motherhood that crack us right open. Some more expected than others. When Amy Taylor-Kabbaz became a single mother last year, it wasn't the plan. You hope, assume you are bound stronger, and it can feel like a societal failure to admit that it just isn't working anymore. Although incredibly hard, it is also a empowering and enlightening experience to redefine ourselves through this time.
Listen as Jacinta and Amy discuss:
- Single motherhood and how it alters, differs and reshapes your identity.
- Grieving the loss of dreams, hopes and desires for both ourselves and our children.
- Social exclusion and lonliness, while also finding great satisfaction in opening up conversations and bonds.
- What communal, societal care looks like for single mothers.
This episode is not only for Single Mamas. It is insightful, acknowledging and only highlights the importance of Matresence for mothers far and beyond.
