In this episode of ‘Mothering From Within,’ I chat with guest expert Dacia Davidson, a New Zealand-based occupational therapist specializing in mental health. 

Dacia shares her personal journey of motherhood, emphasizing the importance of self-regulation and reconnecting with one’s identity beyond being a mom. 

We discuss the challenges mothers face, including postnatal depression, and offer strategies for managing sensory overwhelm and identifying personal values and strengths. The conversation highlights the necessity for mothers to prioritize their mental health and well-being through simple, actionable steps, fostering a sense of control and joy in their journey. This episode is a deep dive into navigating the complexities of motherhood with confidence, courage, and authenticity.
