Matrescence ... and your Brain!

Uncategorized Mar 29, 2021

There is so much misconception about our brain and the fabulous changes it goes through during matrescence. In the first 6 months postpartum we actually get more stuff in our brain, that gives us our mum power. It increases connectivity for us to connect with our new child. 

There is a thought out there that we get baby-brain... but its such a lie.

We get baby connection brain - we get a brain boost that supports ourselves to connect and realise the needs of this new human we have brought into the world.

Our brain, on purpose, knowingly shifts our attention to other areas of our life, like looking after our baby and being hyper-aware of their needs, so of course we lose focus on other parts of our world.

This is normal.

There is nothing wrong with you.

You don't need a supplement to 'fix yourself' or 'make it better'.

Your body is doing exactly what it needs to do at that exact time for survival of your family.


Yes ... sleep helps.

As does enough water and nourishing food.

Also, support is amazing.

But I really hope that you know just how important it is to trust yourself. That you're body is super clever, and it is doing exactly what it needs right now to function in the perfect way for your family. 


Matrescence is a glorious time that has been fed to us as a time where we are broken, we need fixing and there is something wrong with us if we don't function exactly as we did before we had a child.

I'd like to call bullshit on that.

Because you are Brilliant, not Broken!

With much Mama love,
