Praxis is a process of putting theory into practice. Change is possible. Inner awareness has the potential to lead to outer transformation.
Mothering is often presented as something we should already know how to do when we become mothers. Yet a developmental approach to the transition into motherhood shows this representation to be false. Instead, we can investigate mothering as a dynamic interplay between theory and practice, reenvisioning motherhood for ourselves, our families, and our planet through our mother praxis.
Offerings for every stage of the journey.
Helping mothers root into who they truly are with a developmentally-informed approach to mental health, aiming to reenvision the challenges within the perinatal period and beyond as a growth process that all mothers experience.
Examining perinatal eco-related mental health distress through an psychoecological developmental model (located as a domain of matrescence) and developing curricula to support mothers through these challenges.
Educating mothers and mother-supporting professionals on the developmental theory of motherhood, with a specific focus on the ecological, to support their own and other's journey into motherhood and beyond.
