THERE IS HELP !
Maternal mental health disorders like postpartum depression can affect anyone. We need to ask her how she’s really feeling and listen to mothers when they tell us they are not doing well.
Despite what you may have heard, the maternal instinct is not a switch that flips once the baby comes into the world. For many moms, it’s learned over time and through a collection of experiences and support from other mothers. Let new moms in your life know that this is a journey. They may not have all the answers yet, but they will find their way.
Today ask a new mom in your life how she is really feeling. And, if they are really struggling, you can tell them it’s not uncommon (or not unusual) and help is available.
