May is Mental Health Awareness month, but this is one topic we believe in talking about 365 days a year. Motherhood is a beautiful, soul-filling experience, but it also the hardest thing we’ve ever done. Full stop.
We’re shining a light on some of the brave mamas destigmatizing the need for support and community and creating space for every type of emotion (because we’ve had them all).
If you think you may be suffering from pre or postpartum anxiety or depression, don’t wait: Discuss it with your doctor, doula or partner and get the support you need.
“Feelings of isolation in pregnancy are not discussed and feeling alone in my depression compounded my state of mind.”
