Every woman can bean empowered woman

No woman should have to feel alone.

Starting a family can be an exciting and joyous time but it is also a time filled with stress, fear, and too often, a feeling of emotional isolation. Whether trying to conceive, coping with pregnancy, losing a pregnancy, experiencing the aftermath of labor and childbirth, caring for a newborn, raising children, or balancing the demands of family and work life, it is not uncommon to experience feelings of sadness, worry, and general discontent. 

Today, there is so much we know about how difficult these processes can be on the body, mind, and spirit; yet, these universal challenges are seldom openly discussed.

The truth is that many, if not all, women will struggle at some point during the childbearing years.

During the perinatal period, common doubts and fears include: 

  • Do my feelings make me a bad person?
  • What if my family or friends think I am crazy?
  • Am I an unfit mom?
  • If I tell someone, will they take my children away from me?

With help, recovery is possible.

When women share their stories and receive outside compassion and support, a window for healing is opened. With time and attention to self, women can learn to identify their own strengths and draw upon inner resources to use as a guide through life's major transitions, creating a lasting sense of security, confidence, and stability.
