We understand that everyone’s journey into motherhood looks different. We are working towards shedding expectations and stigma to embrace every woman’s story. Matrescence (sounds like adolescence) is defined as the physical, psychological, and emotional changes one goes through during the monumental transformation that is motherhood. Let us serve you in this space. We are here to help you navigate through the fog of this identity shift by giving you the grace and support you need.

Our Story

Two moms on a mission to change the landscape of maternal mental health and to identify its role and importance to overall wellness. Addressing the stigma that divides women from appropriate support and accessible resources to navigate, overcome, and thrive in the joyful (and somewhat tumultuous) journey that is motherhood.

Throughout pregnancy and motherhood, focus is primarily placed on the physical health of the woman and baby. Although most women have heard of maternal mental health issues, few are told the signs to look for, the various ways of which it can manifest itself in your life, and where to seek help. The Matrescence was born out of a desire to help other women navigate through their personal experience with maternal mental health and wellness. We provide a platform of evidence-based resources, access to live discussions with industry experts, and more importantly, a community to support, uplift, and empower one another through connection.
