Motherhood has two faces.
There's the face you visualize before birth— of hugs, kisses, delight and fulfillment.
And then there's the other face of motherhood – of exhaustion, overwhelm, loneliness, and anxiety, wondering if these feelings will ever go away and longing for things to just go back to normal.
You start doubting, what are you doing wrong? This is not how it's supposed to be - everyone else seems to be handling motherhood with grace. And so guilt, shame, and a sense of failure begin to take over, along with grief over your lost, previous life.
My specialized perinatal coaching, will give you the tools to regain control and self-confidence, set healthy boundaries and thrive in your new role of motherhood.
I know, your time is so limited! That's why we work at your pace and at your time (evening and weekend sessions available!), to help you feel like yourself again.
You can still reclaim yourself, raise a happy family, and pursue your dreams!
I've been there
As a first-time mom, I knew my life was going to change but I couldn't imagine how and to what extent. I don't think any new parent can ever fully prepare for the shift—it’s new and massive.
What’s more, the transition to motherhood is not widely discussed, nor is it generally supported by the structures and norms of our society. Even though depression is the most common complication after birth, there is no systematic screening testing for postpartum moms, and in many cases, even basic information is not communicated.
I know how lonely, overwhelming, and hopeless it may feel right now. I know how much courage it takes to speak up and seek help. But I also know that with support you will start to feel like yourself again.
I offer compassionate, insightful, and transformative coaching. My method is integral, which is a holistic approach focusing on the mind, heart, and body. I’m ready to meet you where you are in your journey and together, we will remove the roadblocks that are holding you back from being your confident, joyful self.
This program is for you if:
You feel overwhelmed, like hanging by a thread.
You do not enjoy motherhood and cannot understand why.
You constantly doubt whether you are a good mom.
You struggle to bond with your baby.
You feel lonely and isolated.
You feel anxious even when the baby is calm.
You feel like you have completely lost yourself.
You feel jealous, angry or resentful towards your partner, and compare time and chores.
You experience challenges with other relationships (i.e. siblings, in-laws, parents)
The IVF process is complex, long, tedious and the hormonal treatment can trigger depression and anxiety. It is therefore easy to take its toll both at an individual level and at a couple level.
