Everyone talks about the nursery. Listen, we got the diapers, we picked out the name, we put the crib together barely. Those last months of pregnancy can seem like years. Anxiously awaiting your little bundle of joy. Babies are joy, but it also can be challenging and trying. Listen mommas, it is hard. Everyone is so focused on the logistics, the nursery, birthing classes, lactation, etc. Who touches on Perinatal Mood Disorder? Who talks about the 1 in 5 women that have postpartum depression and anxiety? Who talks about when its completely normal and when it’s time to worry? What about the mom that has the perfect nursery, did the birthing classes, her birth plan went great, but after being home one week she feels like she doesn’t even know her baby? “What’s wrong with me” she will think to herself. She did everything right, it wasn’t supposed to be this way! Let alone the mommas who have some barriers and less than perfect lives (now, those are my people).
Well, while I can’t fix all the issues and all the problems. (Sorry!) I am here to offer you REAL, RAW, Evidenced Based information on Mental Health During Pregnancy and Postpartum. So that you come out of this series feeling like a Warrior, Prepared for battle! #MoreThanJustTheNursery
