For many years after my first child was born, I struggled with trying to find the balance between who I was before my children arrived, and being a mama.
It was as if I was a mass of contradiction –
on the one hand, I wanted nothing more than to give myself to my children, dedicated to their wellbeing and happiness.
But on the other, I craved my space, my independence, the dreams I had worked so hard to achieve.
It wasn't until years later, in my research into matrescence, that I discovered what this was –
and how normal it really is.
I call it The Inner Split.
And it explains how you can both love being a mama, and struggle with it at the same time.
If you'd like to know more about your own Inner Split, take a look at The Birth of You online program.
And if you're feeling called to share matrescence and the Inner Split with the world, register for the Mama Rising training coming up in September 2020.
I'm a matrescence activist - here to revolutionise the way you feel about yourself as a mama, and transform the way the world values and supports all mothers, everywhere.
Understanding what matrescence is and how to navigate it is like being
handed a map.
Once you've got the map, the journey gets easier... and really, really exciting. Because it’s the making of you.
