We discuss and share symptoms to look out for regarding postpartum anxiety and depression; along with some coping tools and resources to support these thoughts and emotions.
Boundary Setting with Family
A new baby can bring a lot of changes and expectations from the extended family. We talk all things boundaries and how we can set boundaries with our in-laws, partner, family and strangers.
How do I make friends now?
We will discuss the shift in friendships that can happen when we have a baby, and figuring out where we can connect with other mothers, and create new lasting friendships.
Reconnecting with self and partner
We know that a new baby creates changes in yourself and your relationship. We talk about how we can reconnect with ourselves, after all we are more than just mothers. We also discuss how to connect with our partner in these new roles, and find pleasure again.
