Are You OK? Who can help you deal with things when the going gets tough??

The journey into parenthood is exciting but also a time of great change. Often I don’t believe we are well equipped to cope with the shift in our role from work with only yourself to care for, to being at home providing round the clock care to your baby. The change in how we view our contribution to the family unit from an income perspective, how we view our body, where we place our baby’s, our partners and our own needs. The daily interactions we would usually have with work colleagues and friends. Layered upon the changes are dealing with a lack of sleep, possible pregnancy or birth conditions that cause pain or discomfort and the physical demands required of you. The list goes on. There is not enough conversation about the fragility of our emotional well-being. Andrea and I wanted to share some fabulous resources available to support yourself and your partner at this time.
