The journey to motherhood is not always an easy traveled road. On that journey, you will encounter postpartum, a period to provide the new mom time to physically heal from the trauma of birthing new life and the mental adjustment of incorporating this new life into her life. This period can bring both positive and negative feelings. These feelings are very normal and relatable. Having experienced both sides of the postpartum experience, I am here to provide a safe space for transparency, empathy, and compassion, free of judgment. I want to be a part of that quest back to yourself, starting with acknowledgment of your feelings. Together we will work on facing any shame, guilt, hopelessness, or unwarranted feelings you may face.
