Navigating matrescence with ADHD

Navigating matrescence with ADHD

By Kate Moryoussef

Matrescence may be a terminology you're not too familiar with, but if you're a mother, you'll fully understand its meaning.

Today's guest is Gemma Mercer, a transformation coach for mothers and Matrescence Educator. Gemma coaches women individually and in the workplace, helping them merge their ambitions, roles and responsibilities when juggling family life.

She believes becoming a mother doesn’t mean we need to lose our self and she supports women to ditch the should-do’s, regain control, rediscover their self-identity and redefine what they want from life… now that they are also Mum.

During today's conversation, Gemma and Kate talk about:

What "Matrescence" meansGemma's ADHD journeyWorking in a patriarchal environmentThe idea of "having it all" as a mother Reasons you might not be coping with everything motherhood bringsTrauma and ADHDSeeing our ADHD traits in our kidsHow motherhood changes you/your careerNavigating new careers in matrescence Getting to know ourselves after having a babyThe challenges of being an ADHD motherMotherhood and workplace burnout Diversity and inclusion in the workplace
