Becoming a mother is truly a profound experience where every fabric of your being changes. Because the transformation is so profound, the mother needs time to process and articulate what exactly has changed. The pregnancy, birth, and the aftermath is rapid, and jolting. It is now widely known, accepted, and documented that infants once born recognize their mothers. The speculation is that through their sensory apparatus they know, instinctually, who has nurtured them during their time in the womb. Mothers who adopt will also feel the instinctive pull to bond and nurture. Many women experience a faux-pregnancy; real sensations that seem as if one is pregnant. Psychotherapy offers an opportunity to process the incredible changes that have transpired with the self and the self with others. The body/matrix is felt like no other time as when a woman becomes a mother.
