56 | Motherhood on the land – With Steph Trethewey @motherlandaustralia


In this episode we are lucky to hear from Steph Trethewey. Steph is a mother of two, journalist, author, podcast host and the founder of @motherland, a national charity supporting and connecting rural mothers. In this episode Steph and I chat about her: 

  • Journalism career pre-children  
  • Very challenging first postpartum experience  
  • Feelings of isolation that deepened upon moving to rural Tasmania as a new mother 
  • Creation of the Motherland podcast and online mother’s groups for her own mental health and to help others
  • Journey as Motherland has grown, being approached to write a book and soon to be hosting the first Motherland national conference in March 2024.
