What is Matrescence
“The complete transformation of a women as she moves through motherhood”- Amy Taylor-Kabbaz
There is no end point, it’s always changing and it’s different for every mama.
It’s profound and it’s on many levels.
The cascade of motherhood leaves no stone unturned. It can affect us on so many levels- physical, emotional, hormonal, social, cultural, economic and spiritual.
I love the saying that when a child is born, so to is a mother. And both the mother and child need time, love and care to land.
It takes time to learn the ropes. And the truth is... we never stop learning do we mamas.
We are split in two when we become a mama- the women we used to be and the mother.
This new identity and split can sometimes leave mamas feeling lost.
Lost both within and outside of their role as a mother.
‘Who am I now that I am a mama?’ -Is a question that I’ve asked myself before and that used to really scare me. Now it excites me.
Matrescence really helps us to navigate, connect with and value this inner split and bring us back to feeling whole.
If you can relate to this feeling of feeling lost, of this identity shift feeling unsettling and confusing you are not alone. And this work can really help you to understand the transformational process that you are going through mama.
The process is one of the greatest gifts on earth.
The process is called Matrescence
