#29 Matrescence: the gift that makes mothers superwomen (if you let it) – with Debra Summons
Play • 1 hr 2 min

Imagine if every mother knew that she will go through a developmental transition – matrescence - when she becomes a mother, and that this would change her immensely. 

Now imagine if she had the information and knowledge to use her motherhood transformation to step into her power and truly thrive. 

Matrescence – becoming a mother – is this transition.  And not only do we not talk about the fact that we change when we become mothers, we don’t tell mothers that her matrescence journey may be her greatest gift.

Until today!

In this very special first episode of MAMA, UNLEASHED I speak with powerhouse mum of three, entrepreneur and business owner Debra Summons. Deb very honestly shares her journey and struggle with becoming a mum, how not knowing about matrescence affected her experience, and how she now thanks the gift and opportunities she found in her suffering. 

 If you are struggling, feeling lost, unfulfilled or unsatisfied in motherhood, or just wondering “who am I now I’m a mum”, this episode is for you. You are not alone!


Key takeaways from this episode of MAMA, UNLEASHED!

- We must educate every mother about matrescence BEFORE she has her baby so she can be prepared for the change within herself

- Matrescence can be our greatest personal gift and power

- Motherhood is just one hat we wear as women; we can’t let it consume us

- It’s important to see our transition into, and our privilege of, motherhood, not as an imposition, but an opportunity to become our happiest self.
