Congratulations on your pregnancy…again! Becoming a mother of two (or more) is a huge transition.
- Freaking out wondering how you’re going to care for another baby when your first child(ren) still needs so much attention?
- Terrified that it will be just as hard this time around?
- Feeling like you don’t even know who you are anymore?
Your first experience of motherhood may have surprised you with its intensity. You encountered obstacles you weren’t prepared for. You were more tired than you ever thought possible. You may have gone to some dark places in your own mind. And when you reached out for support…
Oh, how I hope you got the support you needed & deserved.
But I doubt it.
Because most of the mums I speak with in Canberra tell me that they felt overwhelmed. Exhausted. And achingly lonely.
Can you relate?
What was the hardest thing for you?
- Was it the soul-destroying sleep deprivation?
- Learning how to breastfeed?
- Having zero time and energy to pursue your own interests?
- Losing touch with your friends?
- Being on call for a tiny, demanding human being 24 hours a day?
- Feeling like you’d been demoted in society?
Whatever it was – it doesn’t have to be that hard this time around.
We were never meant to do this alone. Postnatal support isn’t a luxury – it’s a must-have.
For thousands of years, human mothers received intensive support throughout the first 6 weeks and beyond. Even today, mothers in traditional societies enjoy deep, nurturing rest after the births of their babies. They are celebrated with rituals, honoured as warriors, and nourished with special meals. And 50 years of scientific research shows that this kind of support is an essential requirement for a postnatal mother – to restore her physical health and protect her mental health.
What if you could have that kind of rock-solid support…for an entire year?
How would you like to RELAX into motherhood this time around, instead of being stressed and overwhelmed?
Imagine if you could meet the needs of your children and still take time for yourself, without feeling guilty.
If you like the sound of that, let’s get to know each other better.
