During the postpartum period, women can think and feel a lot of different things . . . love, exhaustion, loneliness, bliss, hormonal. Sometimes we can even think of scary thoughts postpartum. I’ve personally been there and have seen many new moms go through the ups and downs. Women think this time with their baby will be filled with continuous happiness and joy. It is, but sometimes . . . it’s not. It can be pretty alarming for those who have experienced the downs and scary thoughts, and the mom guilt can build up and set in.
In this episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with Dr. Jane Shomof, a licensed marriage and family therapist. She specializes in postpartum support and is the owner of Bloome, a mobile and virtual business that provides peripartum support to mothers from their third trimester through postpartum. She continues to help so many mothers, and she has provided us with some incredible advice on how we can normalize and minimize those scary thoughts postpartum. We hope this episode helps mamas out there!
