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 too. Women think that this time with their baby is going to be filled with continuous happiness and joy. It is, but sometimes . . . it’s not. It can be quite alarming for those who have experienced the downs and scary thoughts, and the mom guilt can really build up and set in.
In this episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with Dr. Jane Shomof, a licensed marriage family therapist who specializes in postpartum support and 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 some incredible advice on how we can normalize and minimize those scary thoughts postpartum. We hope this episode helps mamas out there!
