But without this understanding, we simply expect women to go back to who they used to be (especially in the workplace) and just become superwoman.
At the end of 2018, Amy flew to New York City to meet with the world's leading expert on matrescence at Columbia University, and is now working exclusively with Dr Athan to be the leading expert on how to support mothers through matrescence, no matter what stage of motherhood they are in. She is expected to complete her initial studies with Columbia University by mid-2020, but has intentions to go on to study further, with the hope of a PhD one day.
Amy is an experienced journalist, having worked for the ABC as a newsreader, senior producer, and radio presenter around the country for nearly 15 years. She's written for various newspapers, as well as Wellbeing Magazine, ELLE Australia, The Collective and Practical Parenting. She has presented her insights into motherhood and the pressure to be 'superwoman' at business events for working mums, and is currently working on her second book to be published by Hay House international at the end of 2019. Her third book - "No More Superwoman" - is due out in late 2020.

- No more superwoman: how to balance everything in life without burning out
