It's okay to not be okay...
Continuing in the vein of breaking the silence, doula and childbirth educator, Deb Bruin, speaks out about her own experience with 12 week old baby Ollie and the response she received in sharing her Postpartum Mood Disorder story, as well as her decision to join Blooming Tree Maternity and lead our new PPMD support group, Breaking the Silence.
In the blog post, I talk about the deafening silence we've created around postpartum mood disorders so in the spirit of breaking through that, I'll be leading a PPMD support group here at Blooming Tree Maternity.
My decision to join Blooming Tree Maternity was heavily influenced by the realization that I needed a team behind me to make sure that I wasn't spreading myself too thin trying to do and be all the things. If I could pinpoint one thing that really set me back in my experience with postpartum anxiety, it would be the fact that I try to be everything for everyone all of the time.
I can't be.
I can't be the best version of myself, for my family or my clients, without a solid support system. That's what we have at Blooming Tree Maternity, and I'm glad to be a part of it.
I'm proud to have this wonderful team of badass women standing with me, and I'm so excited about everything in the works that will make a significant difference for our local families!
