Pregnancy & postpartum

Pregnancy and Postpartum

Pregnancy is “supposed” to be joyful and exciting. That’s what people say, right?. Mothers in the postpartum period are “supposed” to get all the support they need, to thrive and survive the transition to motherhood. As they say “it takes a village to raise a child”.

In our modern world, mothers are many times far away from that village and have no immediate support. Many moms work full or part time and struggle to balance life. Moms feel more lonely, judged and overwhelmed than decades ago.

Some moms feel overwhelmed, depressed or anxious and have no one to talk to. Motherhood can trigger scary and difficult thoughts sometimes. The gap between our expectations of motherhood and the reality we live every single day can be overwhelming and disheartening.

Many moms feel unheard and invalidated or like they are not doing a ‘good job’. They feel like they are “not good enough”. Perhaps you can relate.

Do You Feel Overwhelmed, Anxious or Exhausted?

Do any of the following resonate with you?

If these sound true for you, I want you to know that you are not alone in this journey. You are not to blame. I see you. I hear you. I’m here for you.

 

You might feel afraid or embarrassed to open up about what you’re really going through, even to family and friends. You might feel like there’s no way out or no one to talk to about this. This is when therapy can help. Therapy provides a nonjudgemental space for you to talk freely about what’s bothering you. This is your space to share your story, to take care of yourself and engage in life again.

 

Self-care is not an indulgence or a selfish act. In fact, it is especially important to take care of yourself when you have the responsibility of caring for others.

 

It is the best gift you can give others, especially the people you love the most. It is the best gift you can give your children. To teach them that a mom is someone who loves and cares for others AND for herself as well.

Therapy Can Help You be more present, and connect with life and what matters to you.

It’s possible to be yourself again. Imagine a life where you could…
