The Birth of You
As a woman, there is a transformation that occurs when you become
A transformation that starts with pregnancy, and does not 'finish' for as long as you are raising your children.
In our current society, and the value we place on motherhood, this transition has been completely ignored, misunderstood and dismissed.
But the experience of it
is very real.
And this change won't just happen in the first few months - it will go on and on:
- As you return to work, you'll feel it again;
- As you chose not to return to work, you'll feel it again;
- As you look at your partner, you'll notice how different it all feels;
- As you think about yourself now, you might even wonder where you've gone.
Imagine if someone had whispered to you that whilst these will be the most amazing years of your life, they will also be some of the hardest.
That it will feel like the biggest contradiction of all: you'll love it and hate it, simultaneously.
And imagine, just for a moment, that instead of feeling like this 'change within you' was something only you were going through, someone told you that, in fact, this is what we ALL go through, we just don't really talk about.
how differently you would feel about yourself...
"When I became a mother more than a decade ago, there was a very real but at the time imperceptible 'split' within me:
on the one hand, there was the woman who had big dreams and goals and identified with her purpose in the world, and on the other hand, there was the newborn mother.
The nurturer, the carer, the woman who wanted to be there with her child for every single milestone.
It was this massive contradiction within that I struggled with for so long.
Over the years, in trying to understand why I felt the way I did, I began a search for answers.
I interviewed world-leading experts on motherhood and self-care, I studied to be a post-natal yoga teacher and life-coach, I taught myself meditation and created programs for mamas who were also searching for answers.
But nothing made any sense... until I discovered 'matrescence.' "
Suddenly, that inner split all made sense.
When I became a mother, I gave birth to a new me...
and it was not about trying to be the old me or completely abandoning that part of me, but instead, realising - I WAS NEW. "
Over the course of 7 days,
you will discover:
how motherhood changes your core identity
what the 'inner split' is, and how to come to terms with the change within you
how to stop feeling so torn between all the roles you have to play
how to see yourself, your body, and your relationships differently
how to stop being so hard on yourself and, in turn, stop being so resentful towards your loved ones
"I've already had tears of self-forgiveness, ah ha moments and I feel excited about what I can do with this guidance!"
Just wanted to say thank you - this has really changed my attitude and outlook on being a mum.
I really hope we can empower all mums out there and make us all feel appreciated for our role in the family. “
"Thank you Amy. It feels as though I have now been given permission to be kinder to myself, to trust in my own strength, to value myself and to welcome more grace into my life."
"The biggest lesson I think I have learned throughout the program is embodied in this quote that I came across.
WOMAN, KNOW THYSELF. Your program has given me that knowledge. Thank you - Super happy mama here. "
