You spent months preparing for this moment, reading baby books, planning the nursery and creating your birth plan.
A baby exited your body, now you’re “MOM”, just like that.
You are now responsible for keeping a tiny human alive, loved and clean (well mostly).
It’s harder (and in some ways easier) than you could’ve imagined.
Postpartum is full of hormones, little sleep, survival mode, and figuring out a million different things…It’s a roller coaster ride.
- January Harshe
“Postpartum” is a time frame not something you have or don’t have…
Postpartum is a term you may hear thrown around a lot:
“But, I don’t have postpartum. I don’t want to harm my baby.”
“When my sister had her kids, she had postpartum really bad.”
“My cousin is really struggling with postpartum.”
The word postpartum actually refers to the time frame immediately after giving birth and up to babies first birthday.
What someone can have a perinatal mood disorder (and 1 in 7 women do have one).
This includes but is not exclusivley limited to:
Postpartum depression and/or anxiety
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
SUPPORT SERVICES FOR NEW MOMS
I say BE BRAVE, BE HONEST. Motherhood is hard. Please, trust me when I say you are not alone and it doesn’t have to feel this way.
IMAGINE having the courage to ask for support, even if you have NOT received an official diagnosis (and especially if you have).
For the past decade I have helped over 300 women (just like you) into overcoming their anxiety, fears, racing thoughts and their need to be and do everything for everyone.
By the end of your sessions with me you will know your worth, be more confident in your mothering and will have gained tangible coping skills. Telling the truth (even if it’s ugly, especially if it’s ugly) is incredibly freeing, empowering and transformational.
“But, how will I know when I need support?” ⠀
Seeking help if you need it (and even when you don't "need") is as simple as checking in with yourself.
Do you already have an urge to seek professional support services? My guess is YES because you’ve landed here that’s a pretty good sign you’re looking (and likely needing) support.
