You are about to meet one of my favourite people, Gladys Kangau. She was the successful recipient of Mama Rising scholarship and you will hear why spread throughout this conversation. Gladys is changing the world and reminds me every single day of what is possible in this world.
We touch on:
- the misalignment of postpartum depression and matresence in the 4th trimester, when we know deep down it's something more than just the label society gives it.
- how being the backbone of the family can sacrifice and undervalue mothers.
- how villages are changing within African communities and the huge responsibilities that come alongside that.
- the need to belong, self-care and feel at home, no matter where we are in the world.
and much, much more.
I would love you to join me and show your support for Gladys by following her on Instagram motherhood_unscripted https://www.instagram.com/motherhood_unscripted/
You can also find out more about the forgotten transition (as mentioned at the end of this episode) via my website https://amytkb.wpengine.com/forgotten-transition/
We can change the way mothers are valued and seen in our society by having profound conversations and spreading the whispers of Matrescence together. Thank you so much for listening.
