Everyone's experience of this intense time in history is unique – but there are, of course, some common themes, especially when it comes to mamahood.
The intensity of everyone at home;
The pressure to entertain and teach;
The lack of personal space, and the reminder, again, of how difficult it can be to even pee in peace.
But there's also a lot of different issues and challenges coming up for so many mamas in this community, and it is my intention to ensure I create content that talks to each of you, the best way I can.
Today, I wanted to honour the solo mamas, and reached out to my amazing friend and solo mama to three, Lisa Corduff.
In this podcast, Lisa talks about parenting on her own, and the grief and loneliness that has been triggered. But she also shares, as she always does, an insight into your strength as a solo parent, and the reminder you may just need today:
You've got this. You've already proven you can do hard things – this is no different.
Even if you are not a solo parent, you'll get so much out of this interview.
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.
