Ep 63 - The Unspoken Truth About Motherhood

Season #5

Get ready for a powerful episode about the profound identity shift in women when they become a mother.

Today I'm speaking to Amy Taylor-Kabbaz. Best-Selling Author, Speaker, Journalist, Matrescence Activist and Mama of three. After more than a decade covering breaking news and current affairs for the ABC around the country, her 'traditional' career took an unexpected turn when she found herself lost, overwhelmed and diagnosed with a thyroid disease after the birth of her first daughter.

15 years - and two more babies - later, Amy is now one of the world’s leading specialists in the field of Matrescence. She is the author of the best-selling book ‘Mama Rising’, the host of the ‘The Happy Mama Movement’ podcast (with more than 500,000 downloads), an internationally awarded Life Coach and meditation teacher, and the creator of the #1 children’s podcast in Australia (with more than 23 million downloads!) ‘Bedtime Explorers’.

Amy and I share personal motherhood challenges and emphasize the importance of supporting women through this transition. Amy reflects on her career shift to advocate for maternal support through the Global Matrescence Foundation and highlights the societal pressures on mothers. She discusses the term 'mumpreneur' and stresses the importance of aligning personal and professional goals with motherhood. And Amy shares a very moving story from her Mentor (which had me in tears) encouraging women to be patient with their journey, emphasizing self-acceptance and understanding during matrescence.
