About Amy

Fifteen years ago, I became a Mama and in that moment, I split in two: who I used to be and a mother. I have spent more than a decade trying to understand that Inner Split.

As a journalist, I’ve been seeking the answers to the question ‘What Happens To A Woman When She Becomes A Mother’ for over a decade.

In that time, I have interviewed hundreds of authors, maternal health experts, yogis and teachers. I have been on my own personal pilgrimage to find answers about why I felt the way I did. And I have listened to thousands upon thousands of women who felt the same. 

14 years - and two more babies - later, I’m now the best-selling Hay House author of Mama Rising, the host of the ‘The Happy Mama Movement’ podcast (with more than 400,000 downloads), an internationally awarded Life Coach. I run numerous online programs for mothers all over the world, I am an expert contributor to media outlets around the globe, and the creator of the #1 iTunes meditations for children, ‘Bedtime Explorers’, with more than 18 million downloads. 

In 2019, I launched my world first Matrescence Facilitator Training - Mama Rising - sharing a unique formula of coaching and support into mother’s transition through matrescence. In 2022, Mama Rising was recognised by the ICF and currently has more than 180 accredited Mama Rising coaches globally.
