You know there's more to the transition into motherhood than the physical changes.
You've felt it yourself.
And you've seen it in the women around you.
You see their struggles, and you struggle with the words to support them.
You know there's something more...
but what is it?
It's the forgotten transition of motherhood...
And as someone who is passionate about supporting, valuing and changing the way women feel about themselves in motherhood, this is what you've been waiting for.
There are reasons why the world looks different after you become
There is nothing wrong with you if you don't recognise yourself.
Together we can start to UNDERSTAND the real transition that is motherhood so we can start to forgive ourselves and learn how to really support ourselves and other mamas.
We’re creating a ripple effect here.
A wave of awareness that is starting with us - you, me and our beautiful circle of mamas.

Dr Aurelie Athan
Psychologist and faculty member at The Teachers College, Columbia University Dr Aurelie Athan is the world's leading researcher into matrescence.
Having first discovered the work of Dana Raphael and matrescence as part of her own research, she has now gone on to lead the world's study and understanding of the transition into motherhood.
When I first became a mama, I knew something profound had just happened.
Sure, I’d just given birth, but something else had just occurred: something new, uncomfortable, unpredictable has begun too.
As I looked into my little girl’s eyes, a very overpowering question began to stir:
How can I be everything for you, and not lose myself?
It was as if I immediately knew that this was going to be it - never again was it just going to be me, only me, and my dreams.
I was forever changed.
Over the coming months, that question and that uncomfortable feeling, that accompanied it, grew and grew. No matter how much I began to feel at home as a mama, I still felt that question within. So, I began to look around…
Surely someone else was talking about this?
Wasn’t anyone else wondering how this whole motherhood thing would change them?
I found absolutely no-one talking about this.
Which lead me to deep self-judgement.
This is what happens when we don’t talk about the transition of motherhood, mama.
When we force a woman to ignore those inner questions, that searching for ‘what now?’, we force her to abandon herself.
We make her feel wrong.
She is not wrong, broken, or lost. She just hasn't been given the right insights into the massive transition she is going through.
