As a mom of two and operating in many "mom" social circles, I have personally experienced and witnessed, the toll that motherhood takes on a person. Whether you are a seasoned aunty, been dreaming about being a mom your whole life, read every baby book on the shelf, or actually have no idea where to even start; the process of becoming a mom yourself is transformational. As with any transformation/change, there comes trepidation, fear, emotional struggle and mental exhaustion. Many new moms put on their "mom hat" and expect that they have to face these challenges alone because "that's what moms do", and that's when the soul can sometimes come apart. There may be feelings of guilt and loneliness, feelings of 'not being good enough, overwhelming sadness (amongst others) that start to creep in. Most new moms just continue through this, alone.
.
I am here so that you don't have to feel isolated or feel that you HAVE to be a strong, independent new mom just because that is what the world expects of you. You totally are a force to be reckoned with, there is no doubt about that, but sometimes we need a helping hand when it all gets a bit too much.
I am here to guide you through the self doubt, the anxiety and the questions, so that you feel confident enough to face small and large challenges.
I am here when all you need is someone to listen to you, a shoulder to cry on, and a voice of comfort and reason, so that you can continue on your path of being the best mom you can be to your little one.
