THE “SOMEWHAT SPIRITUAL MAMA” BEHIND HER HAVEN
In 2016 I found myself being diagnosed with Post Natal Depression in my son’s first year earth side, which for me, was a shock, and to be honest a diagnosis I wasn’t happy about. I’d practiced yoga and meditation for over 15 years, teaching for close to 3 years by the time my son was born, why couldn’t I weave my yogic teachings into my life as a mother? I’m an exercise physiologist, I’ve studied neurology, physiology, biology – I knew about the hormonal changes, physiology of pregnancy and birth and the neurology of the mama brain, but why didn’t that help me cope with it actually happening within my body? Working as a health and wellness coach and coordinator for years didn’t seem to really help either, I knew the importance of healthy eating and exercise but I had a lot more trouble than I expected looking after myself whilst looking after my son. Being a successful woman at work and at home I’d assumed I could translate this to motherhood, independently, without any help just as I would have with my previous roles.
I now know (and am still learning) that there is a better way that we can prepare for motherhood and a better way to weave ourselves through motherhood, without loosing sight of the woman we were, along the way. With the right help, we can evolve into the woman we knew we could be and I hope that these offerings bring to you what I’ve needed in my mothering journey.
Woman is the creator of the human race. She is the first Guru, the first guide and mentor of humanity…..Mothers are the ones who are most able to sow the seeds of love, universal kinship, and patience in the minds of human beings
