This is an episode with a difference.

For ten years, Amy has been exploring what happens when a woman becomes a mother: the transition, the changes, the loss of self and the gain of a new self, and how we can move through it all without burn out or anger.

Recently, she’s discovered something that brings it all together, and brings the pieces of the puzzle together: Matrescence. The anthropological term to describe the complete transformation a woman goes through when she becomes a mother, and she continues to go through for years to come.

This podcast is the recording of a Facebook Live Amy recently held on the topic, which has become her most popular so far. It is a real and honest conversation with other mamas about who we are as mothers and women, and how we can start to redefine ourselves, in our own way.
