A personal note from Kim

To my courageous moms,

baby-handsMotherhood, whether you are a newbie or veteran, can be pure elation and joy. It can also be a time of doubt, fear, vulnerability and exhaustion. There are a lot of unknowns and even more conflicting advice. Sometimes you can feel overwhelmed, grateful, joyous and despairing all at the same time. How can that be?

Well-meaning friends and family may say, “Isn’t this the best time of your life?”, “Aren’t you just the happiest mommy?” You may feel like saying, “Yes, but…….. I’m crying a lot, I feel sad and I can’t get control of my emotions.” Or, “I’m worrying all the time, I’m having difficulty concentrating and I’m having scary thoughts about things happening to my baby.” Or, I hear most often, “This isn’t what I expected.”

Moms, trust your instincts. Do you feel like something isn’t quite right? If you feel that way, most likely it’s not. To be straightforward, these feelings may be symptoms of postpartum depression and likely won’t go away on their own.

– Postpartum depression is the MOST frequent medical complication of childbirth. So please know, you are not alone.

-1 in 7 moms will experience Postpartum Depression.

 There is hope. Postpartum Depression is very treatable.

You do not have to suffer in silence, praying this will pass. With help, you will not always feel like this and I know steps we can take to get you feeling better. Contact me and I can help.

I know the faces. I know the look. I see it everyday. The deep sorrow that distorts her face almost imperceptivity – blink and you will miss it.  The racing, anxious thoughts that spin around her mind faster than the carnival Tilt-A-Whirl.  She is so good at hiding. She knows that something isn’t quite right. She laughs and says she’s just tired.…
