If you knew about matrescence – the developmental transformation a woman goes through when she becomes a mother – before you became a mum, would it have changed your motherhood experience?

Imagine you knew, before you had your baby: what is matrescence, how does matrescence change you, and how might matrescence manifest for you.
Moreover, what if someone encouraged you to prepare yourself for matrescence by delving into yourself, and your life to this point, and writing a plan for your matrescence journey?

In this episode of MAMA, UNLEASHED! I share with you knowledge, information and an evidence-based strategy that will help you thrive in matrescence, especially if you are expecting a baby.
