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?
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.
Becoming a mother shakes you up and you have little control over how matrescence will manifest for you. But you can prepare yourself, and learn to thrive in matrescence and feel truly happy in motherhood
