It's the space in between.
It's the not who you used to be, and not quite who you will be yet.
It's the darkness and the opportunity.
And as my guest in this episode describes it: it's the liminal space in motherhood.

Jessie Harrold is a couch, doula and author. She has been working with women for more than a decade, supporting them through the rites of passage of womanhood - especially motherhood.

As she outlines in this interview, there is a sacred space for a woman when she becomes a mother that must be deeply respected and honoured - and if we don't hold that for her, she will feel lonely, unsure, and lost.

So how do we safely move through this time?
How can you honour your own uncertain moments in motherhood?
This is a beautiful insight into the rituals and support we all need in matrescence.
