Captivate Podcasts

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.
