    Re-Release - How our childhood shapes every aspect of our lives with Dr. Gabor Maté

    Re-Release - How our childhood shapes every aspect of our lives with Dr. Gabor Maté

    This month, we’re re-releasing some of our favourite episodes of the podcast. We start with my interview with Dr. Gabor Maté, which I often refer to as the most important conversation I’ve ever had on the podcast.

    Dr. Gabor is highly sought after for his expertise on a range of topics including addiction, trauma, stress and childhood development. His work has been profoundly impactful in not just my own life, but that of so many others.

    In this episode, we speak about addiction, childhood trauma, modern parenting practices and the impact of stress on our parenting. Dr. Gabor explains how everything in our lives can be traced back to our childhood and how this impacts the way that we parent now.

    It’s a really compassionate, judgement-free conversation and I think it might help you to find a deeper understanding of yourself, and your children. I hope you enjoy the episode.

    Ep. 110 How To Reset with Zoe Blaskey, Dr. Nneka Ikeogu and Dr. Emma Svanberg

    Welcome to this week’s podcast, which is actually the last one this season, as we’ll be taking a break through the month of August and re-releasing some of our favourite past episodes.

    We’ve got an extra special episode for you this week, as I’m joined by Dr. Nneka Ikeogu and Dr. Emma Svanberg to talk about how to reset following the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown.

    Dr. Nneka Ikeogu is one of my closest friends from University, and the best Child Psychologist that I know. She’s also the co-founder of Mellownest, a fantastic company which helps parents to take a more mindful approach to parenthood.

    You might already know Dr. Emma Svanberg – she’s joined us on the podcast before and is known as ‘The Mumologist’. Emma is a Clinical Psychologist, supporting mums through every stage of their parenting journey.

    We’re teaming up in this episode to talk about why exactly this time has been so challenging for parents, what support your children might need and how to give that to them – and, how you and your family can ‘reset’ after this experience.

    AND – I’m really excited to share that today is the launch day for my brand new online workshop called The Family Reset Plan, which the three of us also teach together! I’m really proud of what the three of us have created and I can’t wait to share it with you.

    You’ll learn a bit more about the plan in the episode - and you can also find all the details over at www.familyresetplan.co.uk.

    I hope you enjoy this week’s episode - and I hope you enjoy The Family Reset Plan! I’d love to hear what you think - please do get in touch and let me know.

    I hope you enjoy the episode and I hope you enjoy The Family Reset Plan too! For the full show notes, please head over to www.motherkind.co.

    Ep. 109 - How To Have A Happy Mind With Dr. Sarah Vohra

    Ep. 109 - How To Have A Happy Mind With Dr. Sarah Vohra

    This week, I’m speaking with Dr. Sarah Vohra, aka The Mind Medic. Dr. Sarah is a Consultant Psychiatrist with over 10 years of experience working within the NHS. She’s really passionate about mental health and collaborates with leading companies on mental health initiatives across the globe.

    You might have heard of Dr. Sarah from her fantastic column in Women’s Health Magazine or through her work with The Telegraph’s weekly Stella Magazine. Her brand-new book ‘The Mind Medic: Your 5 Senses Guide to Leading a Calmer, Happier Life’ was released last week - it’s a great guide, packed full of useful tools, some of which she shares with us here in the episode.

    We had a fantastic conversation around ways to let go of anxiety, worry and comparison. I think you’ll find some really practical tips to help you navigate through what I’m calling the ‘perfect storm for parents’.

    Ep. 108 Surprising Lessons From Lockdown With Tara Stiles

    Ep. 108 Surprising Lessons From Lockdown With Tara Stiles

    In this week’s episode, I’m super excited to be speaking with Tara Stiles.

    Tara is the founder of Strala Yoga, a revolutionary approach to moving, being and healing. Strala is practiced in more than 100 countries, with 1000’s of guides leading classes across the world. Tara is also the author of a number of bestselling books through Hay House, including Strala Yoga and Make Your Own Rules Diet.

    Tara became a mum a few years ago so I really wanted to talk about how she’s transitioned from running a hugely successful, international business into life as a mother to three-year-old, Daisy. We talk about how Tara has managed to slow down and how she now manages life and business as it continues to grow and expand.

    We also speak a bit about her experiences of lockdown – Tara is full of energy and so I was curious to hear how the last few months had been for her. And of course, we talk about how to practice yoga with your children. Tara shares some great tips around how to keep it fun and let them be in the practice.

    I think you’re going to love hearing from Tara in this episode. For the full show notes, head over to www.motherkind.co

    Ep. 107 - Breaking The Superwoman Addiction With Amy Taylor-Kabbaz

    Ep. 107 - Breaking The Superwoman Addiction With Amy Taylor-Kabbaz

    This week, I’m speaking with the wonderful Amy Taylor-Kabbaz about her work around matrescence. Amy is an author, journalist and a matrescence activist. Her latest book, ‘Mama Rising: Discovering the New You Through Motherhood’ , is brilliant and was released last year.  

    For the last 10 years, Amy’s work has revolved around her search for an answer to the question of what happens to a woman when she becomes a mother. Amy’s search began after not being able to find anything that described the experience she had been through in her own journey to motherhood, until she came across the word ‘matrescence’.

    Matrescence means the experience of becoming a mother and the radical identify shift that goes along with it. Amy describes this in such a beautiful way – she says that when we become a mother, ‘we split in two’ – the person we used to be and the mother we are becoming. And, unless we honour that shift, we can get lost in the process of trying to figure out exactly who we are now.

    I know I really relate to this, and that many of you do, too. I really enjoyed my conversation with Amy and I think you’re going to get a lot out of this episode.

    Ep. 106 - Why your past doesn't need to define you with Chloe Brotheridge

    Ep. 106 - Why your past doesn't need to define you with Chloe Brotheridge

    In this week’s episode, I’m speaking with the incredible Chloe Brotheridge. I’m delighted to welcome Chloe back to the podcast – after appearing in one of our very early episodes right at the very start!

    Chloe is a hypnotherapist, a coach and the author of two bestselling books, ‘The Anxiety Solution’ and ‘Brave New Girl’.

    We sat down to talk just as we were going into lockdown and we had such a great conversation that really re-affirmed for me the power of working on ourselves. Chloe talks about how she went from feeling highly anxious to feeling calm a lot of time. She shares her insights about reframing our mindset and having better relationships with others, ourselves and our emotions.

    Chloe also shares about imposter syndrome and confidence, and how we can totally change our experience of ourselves and our lives through some relatively simple tools.

    One of the things I love about Chloe is her calming energy which I think just exudes through the whole episode. I hope you enjoy the episode.

Better than therapy!

This podcast has been a powerful tool to help me realise that I am in the right path to take care of my children. Keep the great work up!

Transformative, enlightening, medicinal - should be recommended to every mother after giving birth

I always listen to podcasts to enliven the everyday post bedtime toy tidying and laundry chores and thought I had built up a good number of favourites. I stumbled across Motherkind about a month ago, however, and I was struck by how different it was in that it was actually transformative - life changing, even. It has been so enlightening to hear from so many speakers (and from Zoe herself, who is also amazing and I was so glad that she has done a few episodes herself) who have spent years in building up their knowledge of healing, the mind and wellbeing. I have learnt so much about myself, my past, and my way of parenting. Other motherhood books and podcasts share their experience or give advice on the practical side of parenting, but there is very little on the spiritual side, and on the importance of looking into ourselves and what it means to be a mother. I have already listened to about half of them, which for a time poor mum, says something, as does the length of this race review. Thankyou, Zoe for bringing such a gift to mothers - as the title suggests, it should be recommended to all mothers at birth!

When you just want to be seen ❤️

Zoe’s podcast is like a warm hug. It’s the comfort you crave, with no judgement, and I can’t describe the relief and gratitude I feel with the podcast tackling topics that just aren’t spoken about enough.
Motherhood is such a difficult journey and I’ve honestly found such comfort in hearing from other women’s candid journeys and the aha moment hearing about matresence. Thankyou so much Zoe.
