Motherhood is beautiful and something many women look forward to. It is also a major learning curve. One minute you’re pregnant and the next you are feeding, swaddling and diapering; all while riding the rollercoaster of new emotions that are unique to mothers. Mastering the swaddle is one thing; it is much more complicated to finesse the emotional hurdles of motherhood, especially as they continue to change as your baby reaches each new milestone.
Feeling overwhelmed, stressed and tearful are completely normal in the first few weeks of motherhood, but if you notice your symptoms persisting or getting worse you may be suffering with postpartum anxiety or depression. This is the perfect time to reach out for help!
