You are going to be okay;
You will not feel this way forever; You are not going crazy;
There is hope.
Are you here because ...
You are a new mom who is struggling in the postpartum?
You are pregnant again and you want to address your fears related to your last birth?
You finally have space and energy to look at your past childbirth experience?
Whichever one applies to you, you want to feel better.
Please know that you are not alone;
You have done nothing wrong;
You will not feel this way forever;
You will be okay.
But right now, all of this might sound like lip service to you because digging into what is not going well for you,
or what didn't go as planned during your birth, can be really scary at first.
Fearful thoughts can sound like...
What is going to happen if I open up 'pandora's box'?
What if I get worse?
What if 'she' can get better, but I can't?
What if nothing helps?
What if I re-live it all again?
What if I drown in the grief or pain?
What if I can't do it?
What if I am permanently damaged?
Typical challenges and struggles that Mothers face...
Utter exhaustion either due to sleep deprivation
Exhaustion because you are a new CEO of the home + outside work
The day-to-day life with a newborn
No time or space for self-care
Financial stressors due to changes in work
Negative self-talk and limiting beliefs
Not even knowing where to start or how to get better
Can you relate?
I have had moms say to me: "I can't even open the book because I am afraid of what will be revealed to me".
This is so valid and so real for so many mothers.
How do you even begin, if the journey ahead feels so daunting?
And the idea of 'healing' feels so far away when all we want to do is just want to make it through another day without losing my mind.
I get it. Truly, I do. I have been there.
Some truths that can help...
We need to take it slow.
We need to build trust in the process.
We need to gain knowledge about what is happening.
We need to learn about the skills and tools that will help.
We need to connect to a reason for doing this work.
We need to find the right kind of help.
We need to hear from other moms.
We need to believe that healing is possible.
And, for this reason, I have created offerings that can support you in any one of these phases of healing.
The intention is that you will be inspired to engage in your healing, find the courage to take the next step,
and no longer carry the emotional burden of as it pertains to your birth experience and postpartum struggles.
If all of this feels right in your body and heart, let's get to know each other better!
