Health & Wellness Podcasts >

A brief introduction of myself, Amanda O'Hare and the mission I am on with StrongMamaMoves. I am passionate about many things but mental health, motherhood, exercise and wellbeing are the biggies. In sharing my story of my trials with mental health, single motherhood and pregnancy, grief and abandonment and how I have got through all these things, as a work in progress, to running my own businesses, inspiring others to look after their own mental and physical wellbeing. I am hoping to help as many people as I can to do the same. I am Amanda, single mama to Ruby and 31 years old. To have my daughter Ruby I moved from my busy life as a London Personal Trainer all the way back up to my home of Aberdeen to escape the madness of London. The journey hasn't been an easy one going through pregnancy alone, telling Ruby's dads family then coming into motherhood and being left to do it alone. Having lost both my parents to alcohol has had a huge knock on effect to my mental wellbeing and in becoming a mother I made a promise to myself to work on becoming the happiest, healthiest me by learning self love and letting go of unhealthy coping mechanisms. In post partum I had post partum depression which led to chronic insomnia of me sleeping as little as 2 hours most nights for 7 months and after being fobbed off by the doctors eventually took to applying ACT therapy myself to cure my own bad sleep!! In coming podcasts I will talk about battles with ptsd, perfectionism, insomnia, body dysmorphia and post natal depression and everything I have successfully done to manage these to be a good mum and a business owner! I set up StrongMamaMoves in the depths of my post natal depression and insomnia after returning to exercise in the gym and realising that even with 10 years of experience as a fitness trainer I felt self conscious and nervous; I created mum and baby exercise classes as a safe space for mums to regain their fitness, confidence and fight loneliness that can come with motherhood. I have set up the podcast and blog as an antidote to the pressures of the media, social media and themselves on mums to snap back, I have myself lost the 21kg I put on in pregnancy by adopting consistent small changes instead of crazy very low calorie diets and over exercise, knowing that both of these things can torch self confidence and create low mood and anxiety, not cool. There is a better way, I will show you!! I talk about how I will cover these topics, share exercise, nutrition and health tips. Coping with sleepless nights and still living a full life and interviews with mothers, women and men that have inspired me through their strength, knowledge and awesomeness!
