How are you feeling?
Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms during your pregnancy or postpartum period?
“I cry and/or feel sad every day and I’m not even sure why.”
While there are beautiful moments in becoming a mother, there can be a lot of really difficult ones too.
I can’t sleep at night even when the baby is asleep.
While it’s common to worry about the health and well-being of the baby, your sleep is just as important.
I feel so overwhelmed by motherhood.
Becoming a mother IS overwhelming. It’s all brand new – and no matter how many books you read, nothing can prepare you for what it’s actually like.
I worry about something bad happening to my baby, and I have these scary thoughts that I might be the one to cause my baby harm.
Up to 80% of all new moms can experience “scary and intrusive thoughts” of harm coming to the baby – and that can feel very distressing.
I feel irritable and angry with my partner – and even my baby sometimes.
Lack of sleep, hormonal changes, and the overwhelm of new motherhood cause many women to feel frustrated and even rageful if partners and/or babies don’t do things the way they “should.”
I regret having a baby and/or becoming a mother. I want my old life back.
It’s common to grieve who you were before becoming a mother – it’s one of the hardest transitions a woman/birthing parent will ever make.
I feel like a total failure as a mother. Everyone else seems to know what they are doing.
It’s common to compare yourself to other new and expecting mothers, but regardless of how they might appear, they are trying to figure it out too.
