My guest this week was Beth Mount, she talks about the importance of having a community around women to help mums thrive, applicable for all ages and stages of parenting.
We are not designed as human beings to be alone and we need support, yet more and more women feel alone and often unsupported or heard. These are basic human needs that can be forgotten or not recognised as important in the ever-increasing priority placed on being productive over our well-being and seeking a friendship group.
Beth discusses how a community helps mums feel involved and can encourage activity or actions we may not take alone, without feeling pressured. Touching on how mothers can actually be fearful of asking for help or burdening others and she encourages mothers to work through a little discomfort of getting out to meet others and investing time to be part of a community, as it pays dividends in support once you have found a circle of like-minded individuals.
You need and deserve support through all stages of change in motherhood, especially in looking after your health and family. Beth defines what a community can look like and how to lean into this support, seeing it as essential, not weakness to not being able to do it alone, part of self-love practices.
