We are shouting matrescence from the rooftops!
After starting the matrescence conversation in episode 4 of The Tough Mothers Podcast , I had so many emails from mums saying they loved it and wanted to hear more about this topic (you can re-listen to the original matrescence episode at www.ToughMothers.com/ep4).
So, in today’s episode I bring you the matrescence marvel Linda Anderson. Linda is a life coach whose focus is on mothers during their matrescence transition, including their identity in motherhood. She is as obsessed with matrescence as I am, so together we are going to shout it from the rooftops!
Matrescence – the transition from woman to mother - is one of the most life-changing transitions a woman will ever go through. Sadly, we are still not speaking about this transformation as often and openly as we should. Consequently, women are caught off-guard by motherhood. They feel there is something wrong with them, when really it is just matrescence.
In this episode of the Tough Mothers Podcast and Tough Mothers TV, Linda and I dive deep and you will learn:
- What matrescence is, and how it is viewed in society.
- Answer the question: who am I now I am a mother?
- Why we must talk about matrescence openly with mums before they have their baby.
- The things you must know to navigate the split that comes with matrescence
