About Us

Motherhood changes us. As the generation who were told we could do anything and be anything we want to be, accepting the changes that come with motherhood can be very difficult. Our priorities shift, our definition of success evolves, and we find ourselves questioning our addiction to busy-ness. Who are we now? And can we be the best mamas without completely losing ourselves along the way? The Happy Mama Movement is a collection of interviews and insights with real mamas around the world, reflecting on mindfulness, real connection, and the realities of being a modern day mama.

Ep #116 - Mama Rising

There's something you need to know, mama. It's the secret to what you've been feeling since starting this motherhood journey. It's the missing link, the forgotten transition of womanhood. Understanding this ancient yet thoroughly modern insight into motherhood will change everything. It will explain that pull to be there for your child's every moment, yet also crave your independence. It will stop the guilt and the comparison, and allow you to soften into the gift of motherhood. It's called matrescence: the radical identity shift a woman goes through as she becomes a mother. To celebrate the release of my brand new book - Mama Rising - I am so excited to share with you today the introduction to this new book all about matrescence. And to be one of the very first to receive Mama Rising, and be invited to a world-first online event with Dr Oscar Serrallach and Dr Aurelie Athan, simply pre-order your book here.

Ep #115 - Uncovering the real you with Nagma Dawn

Motherhood comes with a lot of expectations, both spoken and unspoken. Passed down from generation to generation, we inherent so many unconscious beliefs around what it means to be a good mother and woman. Matrescence, if honoured correctly, can change that. Matrescence is an invitation to examine not only who you used to be, but who you are becoming. It's a chance to look at your lineage, and decide how you want to create your future. It's the time in your life when you get to look at who you were, and who you want to be. Nagma Dawn is a mama of three who walked into one of my workshops a number of years ago with a tiny baby in her arms, and an open heart. She wanted to know more. She wanted to understand who she was now. She felt the stirrings of something within her - a desire to step back from the corporate career she'd been pursuing - but she wasn't sure what it was... or if she could do it. In this episode, Nagma shares her story of finding herself through creativity and coura...

Ep# 114 - Reuniting with your Partner

Early motherhood brings a total shift of focus - from you as a woman and a partner, to Mother. We get that. We know that's part of the process. But after a while, you begin to realise that maybe, just maybe, you need to start shifting that focus back onto yourself a little - and your relationship. How do you reunite again, after being so focused on being a mama? How does the massive shift inside you translate to how you feel about your partner? Over the years, the strain of trying to be Super Woman and juggle all the things began to show in my relationship. There were many times when I was filled with resentment that I was the one who shouldered so much. We both did our best, but it wasn't what it should be. And I didn't know how to reconnect in a new way. That is, until a simple sentence explaining what we, as women, really need began to change it all. In this episode, I honestly share how things have changed in my relationship, and invite you to join in a special short online cour...

Ep #113 - If we're not that person, then who are we? With Amy Molloy

Matrescence forces us to redefine who we are. It asks us to look at what's working, who we think we are, what we're attached to, and how we value ourselves - and not just in the first weeks and months of motherhood, but over and over again. (In fact, it's kind of never ending. But don't let that put you off!) But as we peel back those layers of identity and attachment, what does that leave? As my guest this week - author, mama and now children's book creator Amy Molloy - says: If I'm not that person, then who am I? This podcast is a reminder that we never stop asking ourselves this question - and that's OK. With each new layer we peel back, we're getting closer to our true self. You can contribute to the funding of Amy's new amazing children's book that also deeply supports and benefits the parent reading it (when we really need it the most) here.

Ep #112 - Good Enough for Now

It's so easy to decide that now is not the right time. Motherhood, household chores, school holidays, deadlines, illnesses... there's always something. Always. But we have two choices - We can choose to keep putting ourselves on hold, waiting for that perfect moment when everything lines up and the heavens open for us to GET A MINUTE TO OURSELVES... Or we can choose to do it anyway. We can decide that it's good enough for now. Today on the podcast, I was inspired to record something for you after a recent coaching session. This mama, at home with two young boys, was telling me how she decided to listen to one of my meditations in the car - even with her son in the back, watching Paw Patrol. And in this decision, she chose to honour herself - as a woman. Beyond being a mama.

Ep #111 - Postnatal Depletion with Dr Oscar Serrallach

Most mothers have experienced exhaustion, pain, forgetfulness, indecision, low energy levels, moodiness, or some form of baby brain. And it's no wonder: the process of growing a baby depletes a mother's body in substantial ways - on average, a mother's brain shrinks 5% during pregnancy, and the placenta saps her of essential nutrients that she needs to be healthy and contented. But with postnatal care ending after six weeks, most women never learn how to rebuild their strength and care for their bodies after childbirth. As a result, they can suffer from the effects of depletion for many years, without knowing what's wrong or getting the support and treatments that they need. Dr Oscar Serrallach is the man behind this insight, and is changing the way we honour being a mother. By bringing in these new understandings of what really happens to a woman's body, he's allowing us all to breathe out ... realising that there isn't something 'wrong' with us. We're just depleted. You can learn more about Dr Serrallach's work on his website, and order a copy of his book here

Ep #110 - The initiations of womanhood...

Where have they gone? Where have those milestones, those celebrations, those INITIATIONS of womanhood gone? They have become invisible. Forgotten and pushed-aside for a faster paced life. A life where we are all meant to be the same, all of the time. To honour motherhood differently, we need to honour womanhood differently. They go hand in hand. To change the way women feel about being a mother, we need to change the way we initiate them into the very beginnings of this whole experience: becoming a woman, then becoming a mama, then when our children leave home, then when we evolve again in menopause. These are the initiations we have forgotten. But the invitation is there for you now, mama... what do you need to be honoured? and can you give that to yourself, or seek it out, now?

Ep #109 - Simple, Soulful, Sacred with Megan Dalla-Camina

How would knowing you're a sacred woman change things for you? How would you treat yourself, how would you honour yourself, how would you love, and parent, and live if you KNEW you were a sacred woman? This is the question that sparked a divine journey into discovering and uncovering what it means to honour yourself as a whole woman. Megan Dalla-Camina, in her new book 'Simple, Soulful, Sacred' explore why we are so disconnected to ourselves as women, and how we can come back home to the truth - that we really are sacred women. Because at the core of it, when we begin to see and honour ourselves this way, everything else flows. You can read more of Megan's work at www.megandallacamina.com

Ep# 108 - Behind closed doors

We think we're the only ones who find it hard. We look at Instragram and see only the best bits - the yoga in the morning, the smoothie for breakfast, the happy family moment on the beach. And we judge. I don't want to do this anymore. I don't want you to think that I never have those days where it's all too hard, that I'm at capacity, and I want to hide. Because I do - I really do. So in this very personal episode, recorded from my kitchen floor on one of 'those' days', I share with you what happens behind closed doors, in the hope that you too can know that it's OK for us to rise AND rest. It really is OK.

Ep #107 - Choosing love over fear with Fleur Chambers

There's a lot to be worried about. Our kid's health, their safety, bullying, screen time. At first, it was how to just keep them alive, and then, as they get older, the fears seem to compound with each passing day... How can we ensure they're safe? How do we instill a deep sense of self within them? How do we let go when we want to keep them so close? Trust, and surrender. That's what I have to remember, over and over again: Trust, and surrender. Choosing love over fear as a mama is one of the greatest challenges, and in this episode, meditation teacher and mama Fleur Chambers shares her own journey with post-natal anxiety, and finding her way to love over fear. You can listen to Fleur's phenomenally successful meditations on Insight Timer, or explore her online programs here.
