Community Conversation - Embracing Matrescence: Navigating the Journey and Sharing Diverse Experiences


Join us for a community conversation on matrescence, the life phase transition experienced by birthing people when they become parents. This transformative process encompasses the physical, emotional, and psychological changes with parenthood after birth. Like a second adolescence, the birthing person's body can feel foreign, hormones have an outsized effect, and they are at greater risk of mood disorders like depression, anxiety. Let's explore together the challenges of matrescence, raising awareness, and discover how we can support others and ourselves through this profound transition.

This is a time for conversation – to share feelings and experiences and talk together as a community.

About the format: With these smaller Community Conversations, our hope is to explore restorative dialogue and build community, creating a space where we are all teachers and learners. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.
