    Media, Expectations and Motherhood.

    in Women

    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

    Natural Parenting meets Entrepreneur.

    in Women

    Going back to work is a  often a very difficult decision for women after they have a baby.  Many women can't ignore the pull of the heartstrings, their instinctual calling to be the primary carer for their baby.  Many women turn to starting a business for the flexibility which allows their children to be their first priority.   The first few years of your child's life can be the most difficult and the most rewarding.  It can bring many challenges - are you doing it 'right?, what are other people doing?  When will you go back to work?  Natural Parenting not only supports your baby's natural development, it supports you.  Today we talk with Kristy Pillinger, creator and founder of Australia's Natural Parenting Magazine, Nurture on her journey into Motherhood and how holding her baby in her arms for the first time was also the beginning of her journey as an entrepreneur and how the two can work hand in hand.

    How to create more calm and happiness in your family

    in Women

    Do you need to create more moments of calm and conenction in your life and your family?  

    We've all heard of the saying 'stop and smell the roses' - but as weeks, months and years pass by, we are becoming busier and more rushed, constantly striving.  This is leading us to a generally stressed state of being and therefor a generally stressed family environment.  It's important in every area of your life to take time to calm down, to slow down and to enjoy the present moment.  I know for sure that my 6 children are more calm and more connected when I am. 

    Leonie Percy, Author of Mother Om, joins us today to share her journey from stressed single mum to one living in joy and from the heart. She will share what she learnt in her life and through her yoga practice, she will share her learnings with you on how you can manifest more peace and joy in your life and in motherhood by finding "moments in your day that will create and restore a sense of calm".   www.empoweringmotherhoodradio.com
