Welcome to this Episode of Mother Maker.
I chat with Dr Sophie Brock, who is a Sociologist/ Social Scientist specialising in Motherhood studies.
In this episode we unpack the perfect mother myth, explore social conditionings of motherhood and how they impact our experience of mothering. Sophie educates us on "Fish tank motherhood" to break it all down, and we explore motherhood guilt, how it works and what to do about it.
We speak on the transition of maiden to mother and the journey of matrescence,
Some of the big struggles of motherhood today and how to move into being revolutionary for your own experience of motherhood and living in the space of being a visionary mother (which doesn't mean perfect).
I so loved this conversation,

1:02:07Hey Friends! This episode is a conversation with my friend Melissa Ambrosini. She's a #1 podcast host, Best selling author, ted x speaker AND mother to a beautiful little 18 month old Bambi. Mel didn't know if she wanted to mother alongside her career, and now, after 6 years of baby prepping, and 18 months of "trusting to conceive" she's now harmonising motherhood and business and honouring her visions while honouring her children. Mel is in the middle of launching WHOLY MAMA her 8 week live program for conscious conception, pregnancy, empowered birth, postpartum and conscious parenting, but we had 45 minutes to chat! So many more deeper questions I would have love to have asked her but that will for another episode and for now enjoy hearing her journey from professional dancer, to successful author of 4 books, and #1 podcast host.

SEX MAGIC, RITUAL & LIVING IN POSSIBILITY with Abby Branson
1:19:28SEX MAGIC, RITUAL & LIVING IN POSSIBILITY with Abby Branson. Abby is a Kundalini yoga & tantra teacher and mother to her small daughter Sitara. Abby's story morphed from being a high achieving business woman in the space of the tantric arts, and spirituality community, to being in a very slow and intentional season of pregnancy and motherhood with her little girl. It's beautiful to hear how Abby held respect for each season of her life and she shares tools on how to surrender fully to where you are at in your current life while still holding a big beautiful nourishing vision for the future. She speaks on using Sex magic to infuse life with more joy and ease and to call forward experiences. She speaks of practical daily rituals to bring in more magic and intention to your life as a mother (Especially when you may not have hours to meditate) I love speaking to Abby as she has always held a point of possibility and expansion and reflects that to her community around her. I hope you enjoy this lighthearted episide You can find Abby on instagram here: @Abby.branson The Podcast intro of Mother Maker was created by my friend and artist @edwina.masson You can find me on Instagram as @The.Kat.River

CHALLENGES OF MOTHER MAKERS & THE BIRTH OF ART
1:10:31Hey guys! In this episode I speak to two of my best friends Erica Perry & Edwina Masson. We were all friends before motherhood and birthed our sons almost exactly one year after each other. Both of these women are mother makers and have had to make big pivots in their creations in the online space. Both are also primarily artists but have been on a journey of how that expresses through their world from education and academic expression and then the morphing into art as they became mothers. In this episode we chat about some of the challenges of being mother makers in the online space, and the value placed on artists and mothers. We speak about being public or private in marketing ourselves online and the exhaustion we sometimes feel from showing up so consistently. We speak about sales, and our own movements from educational based offerings to art, and how becoming mothers transformed our work in many ways. This chat is messy and a bit all over the place but in a beautiful way and I like the way we are just exploring topics with curiosity. You can find Erica and Edwina on instagram @theericaperry @the.edwina.masson and myself @The.kat.river Enjoy! Kat
HONOURING CREATIVE PIVOTS AFTER MOTHERHOOD
25:38Episode 7 is a 20min solocast with me, Come listen, especially if you've ever felt bored with yourself & feel like you're on repeat with what you're putting out in the world. Or perhaps you can feel an evolution for your art or business sitting there waiting for you but you feel nervous to make a pivot because you're loyal to what you've made... who you've been... I speak on energetic frequency within business & trusting that who you are is always more important than what you have to "make" for the world. Love Kat @the.kat.river
