We have a special episode for you this week. If you followed my story about the birth of my first daughter, Jessie, who is nearly 6 now, you know that was a huge moment of transformation for me.

Jessie was born, but also so was I. It was such an empowering experience for me that I felt called in my purpose and mission to work with mothers. So much so that I quit my corporate job of 12 years to start Motherkind. It was my purpose then and I feel that even more strongly today.

This week’s guest was a hugely important part of that experience for me. Her name is Hollie de Cruz. Many of you will already know Hollie. She is a renowned birth coach, podcaster, author of Your Baby, Your Birth, and Motherhood Your Way and a mother of two boys.

In many ways, we have lived parallel journeys of healing. This isn’t really an episode about birth. We touch on it and talk about it, but, this is actually an episode about purpose. It’s about healing and getting more and more comfortable about who we are.

She is incredibly honest and vulnerable about her journey over the past few years and what that has meant for her and how she is different today.

I think you are going to love this one. I hope you enjoy it.

We chat about:

  • Hollie’s journey and what it has meant to her
  • Finding purpose
  • The path of healing
  • Asking ourselves: What is the fear?

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