You're ready for Mama Rising®.

The Mama Rising training is a wonderful, in-depth look into what it means to be a mother, and how to deeply support a mother through this transition.

The space that Amy creates is warm, nurturing and supportive whilst still pushing you to reflect on your own reality, explore your own beliefs and question everything. The delivery of content, group coaching sessions and masterclasses are brilliant and all support each other through your learning journey. I am so grateful to have found this training.

Emma Snelgar, Registered Nurse & Midwife

The Mama Rising Facilitator training was literally life changing.

It enabled me to do the inner work I needed to do to ensure my own happiness was a priority. This had a ripple effect across my whole family, improved my marriage and was also the missing piece of the puzzle in my doula training. For any mamas who are considering joining this movement of women who are truly getting to grips with what it looks like to honour motherhood, I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Alison Burnley, Postpartum Doula and Arts Manager

The Mama Rising Facilitator training helped me reinforce my understanding of matrescence but most importantly get clear on how I could weave this body of knowledge into my work as a Life Coach.

Amy's formula of support and the framework she provided for group workshops were exactly what I needed to gain confidence in sharing this important message with the mothers I work with. It was priceless to get Amy's support during the coaching sessions and the encouragement from the amazing community of students in the training. I feel privileged to be part of a movement that is going to change the way we value motherhood!

It will give you the confidence to support them in all their pain, their struggles, and the beginnings of their joy.

It will give you the skills to coach and support her no matter what she is going through, and it will equip you with the resources you'll need to talk to companies, governments and policymakers about Matrescence.

What is Matrescence?

First described by Dana Raphael in the 1970s, and then recently resurrected by Dr Aurelie Athan at Columbia University, Matrescence is the groundbreaking and revolutionary way we now understanding what happens to a woman when she becomes a mother.

Matrescence changes the way we support a mother that finally acknowledges the physical, emotional, psychological, cultural and personal changes she goes through.

And at Mama Rising, we believe Matrescence has the power to change the way we see, value and support women through mother...

  • in the home
  • in her relationships
  • and in herself.

In other words, it's a revolution in the way the world values and supports women's transition into and through motherhood.

Meet Amy Taylor-Kabbaz

Hay House authorjournalist, international award-winning coach  + Matrescence Activist. Amy has spent more than a decade trying to find ways to stop the overwhelm of modern motherhood (and taking it out on her family) and she is here to show you exactly what works.

As a producer with more than 15 years experience at the ABC, Amy brings the research and dedication of a journalist to the passion of an anthropologist and coach. Since 2013, she has trained as an Internationally Accredited Life Coach, Post-Natal Yoga teacher, and Meditation facilitator. With an Honours Degree in International Studies and a Graduate Certificate in International Development focusing on empowering women in the developing world, she has always been focused on women: why the world views them in a particular way, and what they can do about it.

In 2020, Amy created 'Mama Rising', a Facilitator Training program empowering women who work and support mothers around the world in her unique insights into Matrescence, and how to take the research and support mothers differently.

Amy Image
For too long, we have ignored the needs of the mama, at a great cost.

We are in the middle of an epidemic of burn out, post-natal depression, overwhelm and comparison.

You know it.

You can see it all around you.

It’s time it changed.


I am so happy that I decided to become a Mama Rising Facilitator.

Amy delivers the training with such love and generosity and the depth of her work is so valuable. Not only does the training equip you to work with other women, but it also provides an opportunity to delve into your own experiences of motherhood and do the work yourself. To be surrounded by other women who are willing to be vulnerable and authentic, and who want to change the experience of motherhood for women is so inspiring and nourishing.

Whenever I use what I have learned in Mama Rising with my clients it resonates deeply and I know that Amy's work has been an incredibly impactful addition to my work. We need more people taking the Mama Rising message to the women of the world.”

Louise East, Mindset & Life Coach


I took a leap of faith joining the Mama Rising program and have not once regretted it.

The depth of knowledge and experience Amy has gathered over the years has absolutely catapulted my own understanding both personally and professionally.

Having a full twelve months to emerse myself has been so beneficial and I am very excited to join a second time round! The connections and support from other heart centred mamas has been an added bonus.

Allison Hillery, Early Intervention Teacher & Energy Healer


Completing Mama Rising training has been nothing short of life changing for me.

Through my inner circle, I have met my tribe. A group of women that see me and hear me, fully, in a way that I have never felt seen or supported before. They are my soul sisters for life. Mama Rising has not only shaped my career, it has also shaped my life too. How I Mother and how I live my life in general.

It is one of the best trainings that I have ever attended, and I have attended a lot in my work as a psychotherapist. The balance of knowledge, holding space and support is incredible. I have learnt, in my eyes, from some of the best, and I cannot wait to continue being a voice to change the way that Mothers are valued by society for the rest of my life.
