Ever since learning about matresence and the transformations it can bring, I really knew that this had the potential to resonate with Mamas all over the world. No matter what their experience has been.
Yet, several thoughts rose alongside the potential matresence holds. What about cultural differences, language differences, religious differences?
In getting closer to answering those very questions, I was honoured to meet Hend ElQady who reminded me of the potential that matresence has, while also reminding us of how common our struggles really are. Hend ElQady has joined me alongside my programs, taking in every breath and capturing the very essence of standing in your power and growing into the possibilities of the future.
Listen as Amy and Hend discuss:
Expectations around being a good mother and the role of sacrifice within her culture which is seen as entirely ‘normal’ and necessary.
- The inner split and two versions of ourselves which challenge and can build immensely.
- Being graceful and getting through challenging times bit by bit.
- The motherboard of motherhood which taps buttons that were never pressed before.
You can find out more about Hend via her Instagram at @themumvillage and find your own Mama Rising facilitator at mamarising.net. There needs to be a change in the way mothers are valued and seen in our society. We are here to spread the whispers of Matrescence together.
