A Mother's Birth - Maria Tempany "The Rhyming One"

A Mother’s birth - the moment we too arrive new and vulnerable into the world. 

In this episode Sinead is joined by the poet, author, doctor and mother of 2 Maria Tempany or “The Rhyming One” as you might know her on instagram about how she has turned the last few years of motherhood into words that support us through writing her poems and books. 

From birthing alone in the pandemic to the sleepless nights, breastfeeding and her need to connect with women, her writing began and now supports over 13,000 of us on Instagram. 

She has published two books containing a collection of her poetry and has become a leading voice for a mother’s love, a mother’s strength, the highs and the many lows. 

Her words are kind but real. This isn’t all bliss. These are the hardest years of our lives. But there is magic in a mother’s love.
