5 years ago we got pregnant with our oldest son, and I was SOOOO Excited. FINALLY, I was going to be the Mom I always wanted to be.
But there was something really confusing about my experience, I kept having all these worried, stressed, and anxious thoughts. They were stealing my joy of being pregnant.
And no one seemed to get it, every time I expressed a worry or concern I heard platitudes back like "oh just wait until..." or "yeah, but you'll get through that and then the really hard stuff will start", and of course the regular "this too shall pass."
The thing was I wanted more, more from the people around me, more from my experience, and mostly I wanted to relax and ENJOY the process of becoming a mother.
Is it too much to ask that I get to ENJOY my own Pregnancy?
I mean honestly, why should I have to constantly fight my own mind just to get an ounce of excitement out of my pregnancy?
Fastforward to today...
Being a calm Mom is something we all have the ability to create. And that includes us Mamma's who battle anxiety, as well as all the other worries and stress life, throws at us.
Your mind DOESN'T have to be a constant battleground, you can relax and enjoy your Motherhood. And I'm here to tell you Mamma you don't have to live in a state of constant overwhelm.
Motherhood really can be everything you dream of, and I'm excited to show you all the ways we can build the Motherhood of our dreams together. And in the process, we will calm the fears and anxieties that are getting in our way.
You Got This Mamma!
