Keep reading to get support and learn the tools to be a calm & confident mother.

Since your baby was conceived your life has continuously changed in lots of ways.

Who you are becoming is different to who you were before.

These changes are beautiful and at the same time, as you continue your journey through motherhood, they can stretch you in ways that are difficult and uncomfortable, causing you to question yourself and your decisions.

You might feel...

  • That you're not good enough as you scroll social media or talk to other mothers, because everyone else seems to have it all together.
  • Exhausted by being pulled in so many directions.
  • That you're not doing enough, even though you're doing as much as you possibly can.
  • Like no one really understands the changes that you are experiencing inside, so you don't know who to talk to about it.

These feelings are completely normal for mothers to experience.

Our society is very baby-focused, and the journey of becoming a mother is mostly ignored, leaving too many mothers confused and isolated.

It's time for that to change.

This journey that you are on has a name. It's called Matrescence.

It's very similar to adolescence, however, matrescence is largely unrecognised in our culture.

Matrescence is the profound and transformative journey of self-discovery and growth that you experience, from the moment you conceive, right through your journey of being a mother.

Matrescence is an opportunity to explore and embrace more of who you truly are through the journey of motherhood.

Becoming a mother can feel like unfamiliar terrain, like moving to a new country and not knowing how to speak the language, or find your way around.

Understanding matrescence is the map that you need to navigate through the unknown of your life changing mothering journey with confidence.

When you have the right support in your journey, you can centre yourself in the incredible love and strength that resides within you.

“The process of becoming a mother or matrescence, coined by Dana Raphael, Ph.D. (1973), is a developmental passage where a woman transitions through pre-conception, pregnancy and birth, surrogacy or adoption, to the postnatal period and beyond. The exact length of matrescence is individual, recurs with each child, and may arguably last a lifetime!

The scope of the changes encompass multiple domains bio, psycho, social, political, spiritual and can be likened to the developmental push of adolescence.
Aurelie Athan, PH.D.

Imagine if you...

  • Fully understood the transformation you are going through so that you can drop the self-judgement and have compassion for yourself.
  • You could feel confident as you grow into this new phase in your life.
  • Clear the confusion and have clarity about what is most important to you, so that you can spend your time in ways that nourish both you and your child.
  • Have a network of family and friends who understand what you are going through, and are there to support and uplift you.
  • Can easily switch from stressed out to centred and calm so that you can be the mother you want to be.
  • Can encourage praise and elevate yourself through self-talk, even if you haven't changed out of your pyjamas all day.
  • Can go from comparing yourself to other mothers to deeply connecting with them, because you respect, understand and celebrate each other's journey.

If you would like to discover more about yourself and gain clarity about this incredible journey you are on, I'd like to invite you to attend the brand new course:
