It's the secret to what you've been feeling since starting this motherhood journey. It's the missing link, the forgotten transition of womanhood.
Understanding this ancient yet thoroughly modern insight into motherhood will change everything. It will explain that pull to be there for your child's every moment, yet also crave your independence. It will stop the guilt and the comparison, and allow you to soften into the gift of motherhood.
It's called matrescence: the radical identity shift a woman goes through as she becomes a mother.
As someone who used to put herself last — doing everything she thought was ‘right’ for her children and family while relentlessly pursuing her 'dream career' — Amy understands first-hand the overwhelm and complex range of emotions that modern mothers face.
Having dedicated herself to more than a decade of asking 'what happens to a woman when she becomes a mother?', Amy’s background as a journalist set her on the path to uncover all that she could about the latest research on matrescence.
Bringing together extensive research, interviews, insights from thousands of mamas, and Amy’s own struggles with balancing motherhood and her dreams, Mama Rising will help you see matrescence as your chance to redefine who you are, and allow you to be the mama and woman you long to be.
