This post includes the latest episode of my podcast, A Wild New Work: Ecological guidance for your career. This month I'm sharing a bit about my experience of becoming a mother and what I see as the gifts that motherhood has to teach us about our careers.
As a relatively new mom and someone with a lot of career ambition, it's been tough to integrate these two roles in a way that feels right to me. But one day I realized that that was probably just because I was neglecting all of the wisdom and insight that motherhood offers me.
This episode is a celebration of feminine power, whether you are a mother already, want to be a mother, don't want to be a mother, gave birth, adopted, have a uterus or not. It is an invitation into a new way of looking at motherhood and the deep medicine available to us if we can see its value.

One of the beauties of motherhood is that it forces us to re-evaluate where we spend our precious time and energy. If you're in that process now and want more support, you can click here for more information about my in-depth coaching program, which is enrolling until October 23rd.
I'm choosing to believe that rather than being an impediment to our meaningful work, motherhood can actually be a portal taking us into deeper levels of service. May this episode encourage and empower you!
