Matrescence is the process of becoming a mother. When you’re a new mum and you feel different somehow, but you can’t quite put your finger on what has changed; it’s not only your body that’s changed but your identity is also changing; when certain things just don’t feel the same any more – this is matrescence, or the birth of a mother.
When a baby is born , so is a mother. Adjusting to motherhood for the first or second time is challenging. Remembering the person you were before a baby and finding some time to not be on mum duties is hard too, but so very important . 'We can't pour from an empty cup .'
Below is a positivity journal for you to use and some brilliant videos on how to cope and adjust to the world of motherhood.
