Counseling for New Moms
Sometimes it feels bittersweet to bring a baby into the world.
In this scary world, you may feel excited and terrified at the same time. Inside your body, your little one was protected, safe, and had everything he needed. Now he cries and you don’t know what to do to make it okay.
You feel like a failure and wonder when things will get easier. Some moments are full of joy as you look down at your little one’s face, others are filled with pain or frustration from breastfeeding. You feel disconnected from your past self. Who is this woman in the mirror- with a different body, a new identity, and overwhelming responsibility? You may have expected all the happy feelings, but it’s the dark ones, even the numb ones, that are terrifying.
Breathe, mama. You’re not alone.
I’ve been there too and can help you experience brighter days and peace in your new identity. I provide a space where you can feel heard, where you can speak your fears and share your apathy.
