Navigating Life Through Pregnancy, Birth, and Parenthood

As a woman who experienced perinatal challenges in the past, I know the importance of authentic support and understanding in navigating pregnancy, childbirth, and the newest addition to your family. And now, as a mother of two, I can fully appreciate the coinciding stress and joy of growing a family. 

Becoming a parent is a significant transition in terms of one's roles, responsibilities, and identity. And this transition often leaves us with confusing - and even conflicting - feelings and thoughts. It also comes with immense pressure and expectations. Becoming a parent is in itself a source of stress and can affect us in varied ways, including:

  • Feeling overwhelmed and wondering if you should have become a parent in the first place
  • Feeling guilty due to high expectations (from self or others)
  • Not feeling “bonded” with the baby
  • Your thoughts are racing and you can’t quiet your mind
  • Feeling empty and numb as if you’re just going through the motions
  • Lack of focus and concentration
  • Being afraid that if you reach out for help, others will judge your capacity to parent
  • Thoughts of running away or leaving your baby behind
  • Being constantly in a state of worry

If one or more of the above experiences resonates with you, I invite you to contact me today for a free consultation. Together, we’ll unpack these difficulties and create a strategy for moving forward.
