Society expects you to be happy as soon as your baby is born.
And if you’re not….tough luck, there must be something wrong with you…right?
How could you possibly not be happy with this new bundle of joy entering your life?
Many women are not fully prepared for childbirth and the fourth trimester.
And unfortunately society shoves mom to the back burner once the baby arrives.
A baby represents a great change and this can be stressful.
It is important to acknowledge these emotions BEFORE baby is born and find ways to help mom reduce stress as well as cope with it in a HEALTHY way.
When you cope well with stress, you can experience a better peace of mind and reduce harmful effects on your physical health such as:
➡️decreasing heart rate
➡️decreasing blood pressure
➡️reduce muscular tension
➡️boost immune system
➡️assisting ability to deal with pain & discomfort.
SO you may find that those around you EXPECT you to be happy at this time.
But if you are feeling anxious, have periods of uncertainty and are experiencing a roller coaster of emotions…know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
In the United States, approximately 70% of women will experience the ‘baby blues’. The reported rate of clinical postpartum depression among new mothers is between 10-20%.
Having a midwife that you can trust to talk you through these things before the baby comes is crucial. I will treat you like an expecting mother – not as though you are broken and need to be monitored. I will listen to your concerns in a loving way and educate you – allowing you to make informed decisions about what is best for your baby, with zero judgment.
