The Matrescence Session
Map your journey to motherhood and reflect on how your past and present maternal figures influence your mothering.
You don´t understand why you feel this way, when it should be the best moment of your life.
Matrescence is the forgotten transition to motherhood. Similarly to adolescence, it is a developmental process a woman goes through when becoming a mother. As an adolescent learns how to navigate and negotiate his new identity in the world, so does a woman when her baby is born.
We will discuss the concept of Matrescence and what it might mean to your journey.
We will talk about your expectations around motherhood and how the 'hopes and dreams' are fitting your real experience of becoming a mother.
