When you’ve had a baby, there is a great expectation that you’ll feel complete contentment and pure joy at all times. The reality is that after giving birth, you are often exhausted, emotional, feeling guilty about all the things that you think that you should be doing and sometimes feeling a sense of frustration or failure surrounding either the birth itself or in your ability as a parent.
If any of these feelings are familiar to you then you will know what a lonely place this is. I offer a safe place to talk about your feelings and the expectations that you carry as a mother.
These feelings often fall into either Birth Trauma or Post-Natal Depression. I can help through the following:
Mums who, for whatever reason, feel a sense of frustration or failure surrounding any aspect of their birth experience. This can also encompass those who have been through a difficult birth physically and want to talk through their feelings or deal with any fears that have resulted from their experience
