Motherhood is difficult enough as it is. It is even more challenging when life throws you additional stressors. You love being a mom, and you love your children, but the demands are starting to weigh you down. You may feel anger, anxiety, and depression. You might feel depleted and impatient, lash out at your family, and then feel guilty for acting this way. You also might feel disconnected from yourself, and have a hard time loving your body and the changes it has gone through. Your self esteem is plummeting and on top of it, you are fully responsible for another human being. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed, and it is okay to ask for and receive help.
If you are a mom struggling with mom guilt, postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, loss of identity, difficulties with anger, or strain on relationships, you are not alone. Starting therapy will help you build coping skills for anxiety/dep/anger, reconnect with yourself, build self-esteem, process any trauma from the birth, and take ownership of the body again and loving your body and the changes that have occurred.
