As the founder of Matrescence, Raquel Nowak understands the importance of community and support during the transformative journey of becoming a mother. She emphasizes that “no woman is an island. You CANNOT do it alone. Believe me I've tried and it left me exhausted, frustrated and back at square one."
As Raquel highlights the importance of surrounding yourself with a village, she also drives home how we can honor rituals passed down from our mothers and grandmothers to create that community within our own home. When she speaks about her own mother, Raquel remembers “to this day, baked goodies taste like love to me because they remind me of those special moments my mom and I spent together in the kitchen,” she goes on to share how even the love of a grandmother she never got to meet was passed down to her through her own mother.
Rituals passed down through the generations can be a wonderful way to honor matrescence - the process of becoming a mother.
