The Journey to Becoming a Mother

Matrescence is a term in anthropology, recognizing the myriad of psychological, hormonal, physical, emotional, and social changes which happen during the transition of becoming a mother.

Motherhood has changed. Demands on moms and expectations of what motherhood “should” be like are creating a globe-full of wonderful, exhausted mothers who feel inadequate.

Motherhood & Mental Health

Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADS) are the leading complication associated with childbirth, with a prevalence of 1 in 5 moms.
