You keep wondering when you are going to feel like yourself again, but that is just not happening. Honestly, you don’t even know what the “normal you” looks like anymore.
Why are you feeling this way after waiting so long to become pregnant?
There is an overwhelming amount of guilt and shame for feeling so sad, so incredibly anxious, and doubting whether this was this right choice. It looks so easy for other women to connect to their baby, be a devoted wife and seamlessly make the decision to return to work or stay home. And they seem to be content with their decision. You keep wondering what is wrong with you.
Transitioning during pregnancy and postpartum is one of the most difficult experiences a woman endures.
Although 1 in 7 women experience a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder, women continue to feel isolated and alone going through this.
We want to tell you that you are NOT alone.
You can feel more connected to others, including your baby. You can achieve clarity in identifying the “new norm”. And you can disengage from these thoughts and emotions that keep you in a constant struggle. We are here for you and your loved ones to provide support, education and resources to move forward and feel present in your life again.
