In this episode, I speak with motherhood life coach, post-partum depression advocate, writer, and speaker, Graeme Seabrook.
Graeme is a Motherhood Life Coach, whose approach to coaching is based on the belief that you must be a priority in your own life in order to thrive. Following a traumatizing birth experience and falling into post-partum depression (without realizing it), Graeme began a healing journey as a mother and a woman.
That healing journey led her to creating The Mom Center, a social network and group coaching community for those who mother. The Mom Centre is a space where mothers can come to be witnessed, nurtured, inspired and supported, so that they can integrate motherhood with personhood, and not the other way around. She does this work because she believes we are living in a global culture that treats mothers as if we are inhuman, and expects us to be superhuman.
Graeme’s work is dedicated to helping mothers reclaim their humanity.
in this episode, Graeme & i explore:
Getting away from binary thinking as it applies to motherhood (good and evil, right and wrong, perfect and horrible)
Graeme's personal journey through motherhood, postpartum depression/anxiety, and PTSD
Surviving and thriving in this world while trying to create a new one for the future
The world's expectations of mothers/motherhood and how we lose our humanity and our personhood
Reclaiming our personhood through self care
The privileges and intersections of self care
Sitting with and walking through fear
