So, is the feminine моя used because the speaker is a woman? Is it because мати is a "female" word in Ukrainian? Or another reason? I'm not sure.

all possessive pronouns change depending on the gender of the object, not the subject. My pen - моя ручка (because ручка is feminine), my father - мій батько (батько is masculine)

Because мати is feminine
