Show Notes

In this fascinating conversation with Dr Sophie Brock, a Sociologist specialising in Motherhood Studies, we talk about the ways in which we’re programmed to minimise or invisibilise ourselves as mothers within the broader social construct of motherhood. We explore that motherhood is rarely an individualised experience but one that is culturally mediated to benefit powers that be and how you can break free to create your own meaningful experience.
