integrative 4th trimester medical care and lactation support in your home

​”A mother is born months and sometimes even years before a baby emerges from the womb.  The transformation may begin with a dream, a longing, or even come as a complete surprise when looking at a pregnancy test or gazing into the eyes of her baby, months after it was born.  Her matrescence will forever change her, whether she holds a child in her arms, her heart, or her dreams.”

Dr. Haggerty

Matrescence (n): The process of becoming a mother, coined by Dana Raphael, Ph.D. (1973).  Matrescence is a developmental passage where a woman transitions through pre-conception, pregnancy and birth, surrogacy or adoption, to the postnatal period and beyond. The exact length of matrescence is individual, recurs with each child, and may arguably last a lifetime! The scope of the changes encompass multiple domains –bio-psycho-social-political-spiritual– and can be likened to the developmental push of adolescence. –– Aurélie Athan, Ph.D
