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.

Ep #160 – You do you, and let them be them with Laurie Gerber

Oh the best-intentioned wishes and hopes we hold for our children!It’s part of the surrender of motherhood, isn’t it?We hope our children will be happy and healthy, but in actual fact, we have a pretty clear idea on what that looks like. And it’s no different for ourselves. Have you ever thought that the key…


Ep #159 – It’s not about self-care anymore

Many years ago, I started with self-care. At the time, it was the only way I could see my way out of where I was: deep in mamahood. But it was also the only answer there was. We didn’t understand why we felt the way we did as women and mothers. Back then, we thought…
