The expectations that we have on oursleves as mothers is large, we can all agree on that - but is it real? The media feeds us with images of how we should look, feel and live from a very young age. The images of motherhood are often unrealistic while the reality of motherhood is vastly under-represented. These expectations are reinforced every which way we turn, causing women to try to hide their reality and persisit on 'keeping it together'. As you transition into Parenthood, you transition into a stage of life that challanges and changes your identity, your values and your relationships. Not expecting these changes can greatly affect your life, often leaving women feeling they have underachieved, confused and even depressed - but it's in this vulnerability that we can truly connect - and create our new tribe.
Elly Taylor is a Physcologist who noticed that her story and many of her clients stories were not dissimilar, they were drowning in parenthood, feeling that something was wrong with themselves, their partner and their relationship. After studying the research available she discovered that there was a lot of research on the subject but it wasn’t translating into practical support in the community, so she wrote her book Becoming Us which has become a bench mark book on the subject. www.empoweringmotherhoodradio.com

“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers--strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.” Barbra Katz Rothman. When it comes to Birth women are often scared and confused! But there is another way. Birth is just as much a spiritual and emotional journey as it is physical one. Maha al Musa, founder of Belly Dance for Birth, shares her cultural tradition of Belly Dancing with women to help support their journey inwards that is pregnancy and birth. Thorugh birth we can have a profound experience where we learn to draw strength, courage and grace - all amazing qualities for motherhood. Even if you aren't planning children or have older children, it's importan for all of us to gain a better understand of the significance birth has as in a woman's life as a Rite of Passage - so that we can support her. It could be you, your friend, your daughter, your niece or your sister who will be grateful that you have some awareness and understanding of birth in this light. www.epoweringmotherhoodradio.com
