    Mamatoto Village is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, devoted to training the next generation of Community Birthworkers and Midwives. ?Mamatoto Village (MV) began in 2008 as a vision written for a graduate school paper, by Aza Nedhari. In 2012, after having worked in a for profit capacity as Doulas, and feeling as if their own training had been inadequate, Aza Nedhari and Cassietta Pringle, decided to form a collaborative partnership and bring Mamatoto Village to life. Witnessing the disparities and lack of cultural empathy in Maternal Health professions, MV founders saw a critical need for the creation of a career-training program for birth workers of color and for direct maternity support services to medically underserved populations.    

    Mamatoto's  mission is two fold: to provide complimentary and low-cost maternity support services to women and their families during pregnancy through the first year of the child's life, and to facilitate the increase of qualified women of color serving in the Maternal Health profession.

    Guest: Terry Matlen MSW, author of The Queen of Distraction

    in Relationships

    This week my guest is Terry Matlen MSW, author of The Queen of Distraction: How Women with ADHD Can Conquer Chaos, Find Focus, and Get More Done.

    Do you rule the realm of disorganization, clutter, and chaos? Are you constantly battling to get things done? Are you ready to give up and toss your day planner into the dungeon (otherwise known as your closet)? If so, you might just be The Queen of Distraction. And whether or not you’ve been formally diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you probably already know that something’s got to give.

    The Queen of Distraction presents practical skills to help women with ADHD achieve focus and balance in all areas of life, whether it’s at home, at work, or in relationships. Psychotherapist Terry Matlen delves into the feminine side of ADHD—the elements of this condition that are particular to women, such as: relationships, skin sensitivities, meal-planning, parenting, and dealing with out-of-control hormones. In addition, the book offers helpful tips and strategies to get your symptoms under control, and outlines a number of effective treatment options for you to pursue.

    From getting dressed in the morning, to making it to a job interview, to planning dinner—sometimes just getting through the day can be an ordeal for a woman with ADHD. If you’ve been accused of getting lost in your own world, maybe it’s time to make a change. If you’re ready to start getting organized and stop leaving your groceries in the car, this book can help. It’s more than just a survival guide; it’s an ADHD how-to to help you thrive!

    About the author:

    Terry Matlen, MSW, is a psychotherapist, consultant, writer, and coach. She is the author of Survival Tips for Women with ADHD and founder of addconsults.com.
