Re-release: World-leading psychologist on why motherhood is the challenge of a lifetime with Dr. Rick Hanson The Motherkind Podcast

    • Parenting

Welcome to this episode of the Motherkind podcast. This week we are re-releasing this episode with the incredible Dr. Rick Hanson.
Throughout August I have a break from recording new episodes to reset, take a breath and reconnect with the family. During this period, we re-release the most downloaded episodes from the past 6 months.
This episode with Dr. Rick Hanson came out in January 2022 and it instantly spoke to so many of you. I received 100s of emails and DMs about it from our listeners.
So much resonates with me in this episode, particularly about the need to take the pressure off ourselves and how to do that.
Dr. Rick is one of the world’s leading psychologists and he says it’s imperative we recognise the pressures we are under as mothers so we can support ourselves and ask for the support we need from others.
Back in 2002, he wrote the seminal book Mother Nurture because he saw his own wife, a happy healthy woman, becoming clinically depleted after having children. And with his decades of experience as a psychologist, he felt called to support mothers.
This episode is incredible. Every word Dr. Rick says is like gold. You are going to finish this episode feeling so much more self-compassion and ease and hopefully be kinder to yourself.

In this episode you’ll learn about:

Practical ideas of how to reduce stress from Motherhood

An analogy that made me cry

His life-changing words about the impact of the pandemic


As always, we continue the conversation over on Instagram, so come and join us there.
