On my recent trip to the United States, I spent an afternoon at The Motherhood Center, New York. As I walked through the door, and saw the support they offered to mamas, I was immediately taken back to the first days of mamahood again: scared, overwhelmed, and desperate for the daily support I received at my local hospital.

Years on, I still have days of craving that support. I still feel like, at times, I have no idea what I’m doing and wish I could walk through the doors of a beautiful Centre filled with wise women, get a cup of tea, and listen and learn. Lean on them. Feel safe.

In this episode, I talk about the need for ongoing support for all of us as mamas and women, and where we can get it – even now, no matter where you are.
