    Episode 39. The Valley Below, collective voices, sharing experiences of postnatal anxiety & depression through song with Oneewa McDowell from Blackbird Songwriting

    For national PANDA (Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Australia) week, this episode is a little bit different. Oneewa McDowell joins me to share how her sister Shara Hala'api'api and herself came together with 12 other women to create a song, a collective voice for others who may be experiencing or have experienced postpartum mental health challenges. 

    The raw and real, yet inspiring song is woven throughout Oneewa sharing. The song goes deep and touches on the very real aspects of postpartum mental health experiences. Please reach out for support if you are feeling sad, depressed, anxious and alone, as the voices within the song did and slowly found healing and connection. See links to hotlines to call below.

    For the project, Oneewa and Shara spoke with 12 women about their experiences of postnatal depression & anxiety. The aim was to honour and acknowledge the stories of these mothers, and to give a voice to their experiences through song.

    A song that we hope will reach a mother who will find she is not alone in her journey;

    A song that we hope will bring some comfort and understanding to a mother who is struggling;

    A song that may inspire a mother to tell her own story.

    Listen and let the song speak for itself.

    Oneewa and Shara want to express our deepest gratitude to the 12 mothers who have been involved in the project, for sharing their story with such honesty and openness, and for making this project possible.

    Also to acknowledge PANDA and the Gidget Foundation for their support in connecting us with the women involved in this project.

    The song was released and shared during PANDA/Perinatal Mental Health Week, 8th-14th November, 2020.

    If you would like to share the song also, that would be wonderful and you can share the link to the youtube video - website page - facebook

    Ep. 35 Matrescence, the history, rite of passage, understanding and role in today's world with clinical psychologist Aurelie Athan PhD

    Ep. 35 Matrescence, the history, rite of passage, understanding and role in today's world with clinical psychologist Aurelie Athan PhD

    Aurelie Athan PhD is a clinical psychologist and faculty member at The Teachers College, Columbia University in New York. Aurelie has dedicated much of the last 15 years of her career in Reproductive Identity, understanding and revival of the term Matrescence, originally coined by Anthropologist Dana Raphael in the 1970’s. In fact the popular TED Talk by Alexandra Sacks on Matrescence, was inspired by one of Aurelie’s conference talks. Aurelie’s working definition of the term Matrescence is: “The process of becoming a mother, coined by Dana Raphael, Ph.D. (1973), is a developmental passage where a woman transitions through pre-conception, pregnancy and birth, surrogacy or adoption, to the postnatal period and beyond. The exact length of matrescence is individual, recurs with each child, and may arguably last a lifetime! The scope of the changes encompass multiple domains --bio-psycho-social-political-spiritual-- and can be likened to the developmental push of adolescence. Increased attention to mothers has spurred new findings, from neuroscience to economics, and supports the rationale for a new field of study known as matrescence. Such an arena would allow the roundtable of specialists to come together and advance our understanding of this life passage.”

    - Aurélie Athan, Ph.D.

    Listen in to this super interesting and thought provoking podcast to hear us discuss:

    - The history of Matrescence

    - The importance of reviving an understanding in this area of Matrescence and creating new language for a greater understanding across many professions and amongst our communities

    - Aurelie’s 15 years of dedication in this area, the how, why and discoveries

    - The spiritual aspect of Motherhood

    - Creating a wholistic cross-disciplinary approach
