Maternal Mental Health
Dealing with the struggles that surround motherhood, and our own feminine core, can be truly intense. Many women are surprised to find that the pure love and joy they anticipated upon becoming a mother are also mixed or even overwhelmed by conflicting emotions that might include pain, a sense of isolation, or plain cluelessness. These raw and transformative moments offer tremendous opportunities to address otherwise hidden limiting beliefs and unmet needs, and to connect to the part of ourselves that knows how to heal and appreciate the power of our experience. If you struggle with the experience of being a new mom, being pregnant, having challenges in getting pregnant, or dealing with a loss, know that you don't have to face your struggles alone, and you can ask for help.
If some of the following thoughts sound familiar, feel free to schedule a call to see if working with me would be a good fit for you:
- “I feel constantly overwhelmed and anxious. I can never catch up with my own needs.”
- “I am constantly freaking out that something will go wrong with my baby.”
- "I feel like I have no energy left, I constantly feel like crying, and I feel very alone.”
- “I am pregnant and I’m terrified of what’s going to come. Old, unfinished stories and emotions are stirring in me.”
- "I had a very difficult birth. It keeps coming back to me and I feel like I can’t move on.”
- “I’ve been trying to get pregnant for a long time, without any success. I feel like my body is failing me, and I feel ashamed. I go seek out healers of all kinds to find the solution – so far without success. This has also been a huge weight on my relationship.”
- “I had a miscarriage. I feel this enormous sadness and guilt at the same time. It must have been something I did wrong. My friends get embarrassed if I start talking about it, so I just end up keeping it in myself.”
I would love to support you on this journey.
If you are concerned that there is no time to take care of your own needs, remember that the best way to take care of your family is to take care of yourself.
