MATERNAL MENTAL HEALTH
IN THE SOUTH BAY
Motherhood is challenging. It is not easy nor is it perfect.
It comes with a range of powerful experiences and emotions, often pushing mamas to their breaking point.
Society portrays motherhood as this beautiful experience, with smiles and cuddles. Yes, motherhood comes with some beautiful moments, but it also comes with some horrible ones too. For some mamas, those horrible moments can gradually take over to the point of it overpowering every second of her day.
Often times when a mama tries to express herself, people will respond with things like, "Try sleeping when the baby sleeps", "If you think this is bad, just wait until...", or "It's just the hormones from pregnancy, it will pass". Although these comments are not intended to be harmful, it results with many mamas feeling dismissed, left suffering in silence and feeling alone.
Mamas, you are not alone and it's okay to seek help. You can get better with the right help and your feelings as a mama will begin to have a whole new experience. It's time to nurture YOU. After all, you must take care of yourself in order to care for your little.
My mission is to provide mamas with warm support and gentle guidance to increase the amount of Nurtured Mamas living a meaningful and mindful life for her and her family in the South Bay area.
