You might have heard of this term before, or perhaps it’s totally new! In this episode I share a brief introduction to what matrescence means and why you should know about this word, if you are a mother yourself, or if you know someone who is a mother – in other words, everyone should know the word matrescence and what it means.

In this episode, I cover:

  • The concept of matrescence and its significance in motherhood
  • The transformative and developmental process of becoming a mother
  • The purpose of normalising the experience of motherhood and the identity shift it entails.
  • The mindset shifts and identity transformation that happens when we become a mother.
  • When matrescence begins and how long it lasts for.
  • Brain changes and their correlation with the experience of matrescence.
  • The transition we make from a self-centered perspective to a family-centered perspective
  • How the matrescence journey deepens and expands with each child
  • They way mothers continually adapt and grow alongside their children’s developmental stages.
  • Similarities between matrescence and adolescence in terms of brain changes and hormonal shifts.
  • How matrescence offers us the opportunity to let go of what no longer serves us and realign with our true selves.
  • Embracing personal growth and becoming the fullest version of yourself through being a mother.
