Becoming a mother is a massive transformation. It's a deconstruction of who you were and a reconstruction of who you are becoming, which includes a different biology, a different body, a different awareness and a different value system. Transforming from "pregnant woman" to "mother" is a process, and it involves real growing pains.
So much changes in our bodies, minds and souls when we become mothers. Our hearts crack open and surprising feelings come rushing in and out at full speed. Some of those feelings are wonderful: love, connection and pride may literally flood your system. And some feelings are uncomfortable and may be scary in their intensity or frequency. Most women experience anxiety in early motherhood - and that's understandable, given the fact that we are suddenly responsible for keeping a helpless, needy little nonverbal creature alive 24/7. And nearly every mom feels immense pressure and guilt.
That's where we can help.
