You didn't expect that motherhood would be like this.  

You've been tracking your baby's size diligently week after week...from a blueberry to an eggplant to finally your little one.  You've read all the books, prepared the nursery, and watched your body change...all to get ready for this new chapter.  

Except things are a lot different than you expected.  You're tired of everyone saying that this feeling is normal or that it's just hormones.  


It all may feel overwhelming, draining, and you know something isn't right.  

Maybe you're feeling:

  • An emotional heaviness that won't go away.  It's more than just the "baby blues".

  • Overwhelmed with all the changes in your daily routine, your relationship, and life in general

  • Traumatized by your pregnancy, birth, or NICU experience. 

  • Guilty and shameful about what you're going through; this is suppose to be "happy" time for your family.
