Episode 2 with Ali Pember
This Podcast aims to reassure, support, validate and empower women on their Pregnancy and Postnatal journeys. Through Ailish’s career as a Physiotherapist, teaching pregnancy classes for years, completion of Motherhood Certification and being a mother to 3 girls she has delved deep into this area and wants to empower women on their journeys.
Ali is a perinatal therapist @goodenoughmamas, and an absolute joy to talk to because she is a gifted communicator.
We chatted about the concept of matrescence; the whole body and whole mind experience of transitioning into motherhood. We spoke about what the future would look like if the transition into motherhood was acknowledged and accepted in society. We had a conversation about women in politics, and how mothering (unseen care work) has an economic value. We explored why interdependence, connection, and community are so important.
We may have got slightly opinionated at the end!
