S6, Ep4 Connections between birthing and menopause

Connections between birthing and menopause

Stop people-pleasing and discover authentic self-care

Welcome to Episode 4 of Season 6, our Rise of the Feminine season.

This collection of podcasts talks about how the feminine rises within us during pregnancy, birth and beyond. I’m so grateful you are listening to these conversations about living in a way that fully honours our feminine journey and strength.

I absolutely loved talking to this remarkable woman, Alison Brahe Daddo. Her honesty and generosity are so refreshing.

Alison is a screenwriter, podcaster, teacher and former model who appeared regularly on the cover of Cosmopolitan, Dolly and Cleo magazines in the ‘90s.

She grew up alongside a generation of Australians. Now, she’s all grown up and has gone through menopause, an experience she shares in her new fantastic book Queen Menopause Finding your majesty in the mayhem.

Menopause changed Ali’s perspective on life, relationships and body image.

It made her realise the implications of being silent, speaking up, consent, boundaries, and the importance of feeling, of being and of anger. She reveals how all the shifting within gave birth to a new sense of self and her life.

In this episode, we chat about the following:

  • Menstruation, pregnancy, birth, sex and menopause.
  • How the lessons, opportunities and gifts can be so similar.

Wherever you are along the journey of womanhood, it is time to practice deep self-awareness and authentic self-care.

Pull together a team of practitioners that can help you the way you want. Invest in your health of body, mind and soul. 

Remember, we can’t stay busy forever!

As we continue with our Rise of the Feminine season, stay tuned at the end when Alison shares her vision of what the world would look like with restored feminine power and wisdom.

I highly recommend Alison’s book so that you can become the Queen of your life, whatever stage you are in.

I hope you enjoy it.
