Motherhood & Maternal Mental Health
Women prepare for pregnancy & parenting, but are often not prepared for the identity transition of becoming a mother & adjusting to new motherhood.
Many BIPOC professional women spent more of our adult lives not being mothers & then losing the identity you have spent so long investing in, the degrees, career, etc.
Sometimes we take our own unresolved childhood trauma into our new roles as mothers. We want to provide the security and nurturing we may not have received. Understanding your own attachment style can help you understand how to nurture a secure attachment between you and your children.
Emotionally prepare for & resolve trauma before pregnancy & motherhood
Adjusting to your new identity as a mother
