Support for Moms
You are tired. And overwhelmed. You had a vision of motherhood and this wasn't it. You love your baby, your toddler, your spouse and have moments where all that love makes you teary, because you cry way easier than you ever used to now too. You also have moments or sometimes days, where you miss your old self, your old life. The one before motherhood, where you showered regularly and went to the bathroom by yourself.
Sometimes you feel like you've got this, you are managing this new normal, this whole mom gig. More often you feel like you will never be good enough, that everyone else has it all figured out. That the other moms aren't faking it too, but really know what they are doing all the time (they don't).
The saying "It takes a village to raise a child" is often quoted for this reason - we all need support and a sense of belonging. We need to know that we aren't alone in our experiences, our thoughts, and our feelings. And while simply giving birth makes you a part of a not so secret sisterhood, it doesn't bring with it your "tribe".
At various times throughout the year I offer mini retreats for moms, parenting talks, and therapy groups. If you would like to receive info about these events, please sign up for my email list in the box to the right.
If you would like to speak to me individually about what you are experiencing, please call or send me a message. I'd love to hear from you.
When so much about your life has changed so quickly, it can be difficult to determine if the mood swings, worries, and irritablity you are feeling are a result of adjusting to being a mom and your bodies recovery from pregnancy and birth or a sign of a postpartum mood disorder such as depression or anxiety.
