AND SO MUCH MORE!
The birth of a child is one of life’s most joyous events. It provokes an indescribable, out of this world kind of love within us, but it also confronts us with some unpleasant feelings.
We imagine new motherhood to be a magical, love-filled time when we can't stop staring at our newborn, feel more fulfilled than ever, and want to enjoy every moment with the little miracle we've created.
But when you become a mom, your entire life changes overnight... and even though you hear that and you know it might happen, it's completely different to experience it for yourself.
We leave our dream careers to become stay-at-home mommies. We drudge through our 9-5s dreaming of a world where we can have our careers and our families too. We lose touch with our (childless) friends. Our hobbies are thrown to the side in favor of sleep.
We run on empty, caring for those around us, while giving away pieces of ourselves in the process.
Our identities end up wrapped around the little precious beings in our arms, the ones we love with all of our hearts... but we still feel lost and guilty for our "selfish" thoughts.
Who am I?
Why am I?
Do I even exist if I'm always stuck inside my house and nobody ever sees me?
...be back in our pre-pregnancy clothes overnight.
...be fully prepared for the physical, mental, and emotional demands of motherhood.
...be back at work within weeks, acting as if nothing in our lives has changed at all.
...TO BE HAPPY.
But, that's not real life for many of us.
And, it shouldn't be.
A majority of new moms experience some level of baby blues, a time of temporary sadness and confusion as a result of fluctuating hormones after pregnancy and childbirth. Without a proper support system in place, it's easy to slip down further into sadness.
Postpartum health care is typically limited to one visit with your doctor six to eight weeks after having your baby. The physical care component is definitely lacking; the emotional care is nearly non-existent!
I don't need to tell you about how the U.S. ranks dead last in the developed world for its parental leave policies. Maternity leave can vary from as little as a few weeks to three months, and the majority of that time is dedicated to your new baby.
There is little time for sleep...
Let alone extra time for self-care and self-love. You're left entirely on your own to navigate the land of mom and your new life.
We also need to have open discussions on how motherhood affects us professionally.
Things like how it's OK to want to rethink our careers, change our workplace environment, or even pursue a whole new professional path that allows us to more freely experience motherhood and raising our children.
Whether you're transitioning back to your old job after maternity leave or wondering if it's time to pursue your own thing and be your own boss, there is no help guide to help you make the right decision for you and your family!
In an airplane crash you need to put on your oxygen mask on first.
This is also true with motherhood. There is a lot of pressure put on us at a time that should be about bonding with our baby and discovering ourselves again... and it's time to change that.
