The Kind Parenting Company

Aug 1 2022 • 1 hr


Today’s episode is a conversation with Dr. Sophie Brock about motherhood, identity, how society views women and why women struggle with “feeling like themselves” and our purpose. This is a replay from The Frae Podcast.


Dr. Sophie Brock is a Motherhood Studies Sociologist and Mother living in Sydney, Australia. Sophie supports professionals, business owners and creatives in revolutionising what Motherhood means in our society, and how individual Mothers are supported and understood with offerings that include self-study courses for Mothers and practitioners, her podcast The Good Enough Mother, and her one of a kind Motherhood Studies Practitioner Certification program.

Topics we chat about include:


  • The identity shift of motherhood and letting go of "past you"
  • How does our sense of self and identity change when we become Mothers?
  • Why can it feel so hard to be a 'Mum' AND juggle everything else in our lives?
  • How can we be both 'Mum' and 'me', without feeling guilty and torn in different directions?
  • Can being a Mother offer us a path to transformational personal growth? How?
  • In what ways do our children benefit by us expanding our idea of what it means to be a 'Mum' and allowing ourselves to explore/grow our sense of self and identity as women
