Services for Mothers and Families

"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly but rarely admit the changes that it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” The same is true of mothers. We delight in the ways a mother loves her children. But we rarely admit the life-altering changes a woman goes through as she mothers.

I know we’ve just met – but can we be honest for a minute…

Being a mother isn’t always blissful!

The expectations we had of motherhood compared to the on-call and selfless reality can leave us shocked, exhausted, and scrambling to keep it all together.

When we combine the endemic mother-guilt with a fierce protectiveness, a new repertoire of emotions, the invisible nature of care-work, a loss of independence and the often disproportionate domestic contributions clandestinely packaged with motherhood – it’s easy to understand why we question everything, including ourself.

We cry, we shout, and we wonder, how did this happen? Why didn’t anyone tell me! Am I doing this right? Am I the only one feeling like this?

You're not alone!

It’s only when we explore our experiences through the individual lens of Matrescence AND the social lens of Motherhood
that we can begin to make sense of it all.


The Motherhood Lens

The Motherhood lens reveals how social expectations placed on mothers and the systems that we mother within impact our confidence. If we can imagine motherhood as a space that we enter, a that's separate to who we are as individuals, we can begin to ponder how our time in the motherhood space is influencing us and our mothering.


The Matrescence lens

The Matrescence lens acknowledges that becoming a mother changes a woman's identity. Matrescence honours the physical, biopsychosocial, political and spiritual changes that are evoked through mothering and motherhood.

The beauty of this layered approach is that it ignites a process of unearthing how we want to mother
and who we want to be – beyond societal expectations and the role of mother, partner and woman.

This is the work that we undertake together.
