#motherhoodrising

Postpartum depression (ppd) is actually something we hear quite a bit about as a mother who has just given birth. It was a topic that was brought up frequently by my health care providers in the first 2 months, after which, I was never asked about it again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PPD is common and occurs in 1 in 5 women. Symptoms can begin in pregnancy and/or anytime within the first year after birth. It’s important to note that fathers/partners can also experience PPD.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Symptoms include: irritability, fatigue, tearfulness, anxiety, guilt, isolation, fear, numbness, inability to cope, sadness, & a sense of loss among others. Symptoms generally last for an extended period of time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Treatment often includes counselling and psychopharmacological support. In addition, support groups and engaging in self-care may also be helpful. However, if you are struggling, it is important to reach out to your doctor or a therapist. You may also contact the Postpartum Support International helpline at 1-800-944-4773 or by text 503-894-9453⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ mom firsttimemom postpartum postpartumdepression momlife postpartumhealth mommyhood motherhood motherhoodunplugged motherhoodrising teammotherly honestmotherhood momentsinmotherhood momlifeisthebestlife postpartumdoula postpartumsupport selfcare fourthtrimester mommytime momsohard mentalhealth stopdropandmom parentcoach unitedinmotherhood thisismotherhood sahm mynameismama motheringwithoutfear takebackpostpartum dailyparenting

If you’re feeling stretched too thin (and who isn’t?) it may help to think about the division of labor in your family between you and your partner (and single moms out there, we salute you! Think about how this advice can apply to the helping hands you may have in your family and friends.) Studies show what you can probably guess: The long-term practice of supportive co-parenting and sharing the load can have positive psychological benefits for each of you, your relationship, and your children. It can improve the quality of your parenting and enhance your relationship satisfaction and marital health, even decreasing your frequency of fighting, parenting stress, and risk of divorce.⠀ •⠀ While the term co-parenting was originally developed to provide a family framework for couples after going through a divorce, psychologists have since used this term to advise couples on how to become a better team within the same home. Co-parenting skills help couples support rather than undermine each other. While marital satisfaction may decline in new parenthood, mothers and fathers have happier marriages when they are better at thinking about how their own emotions influence their actions and impact their partners—the co-parenting skill known as “reflective functioning.”⠀ •⠀ These days, fathers are more involved in childcare but, even in dual-earning families, mothers are still viewed as “the natural parenting experts,” leaving fathers to take on a helpful but secondary role. This phenomenon has been studied in both married and unmarried heterosexual relationships, and parenting imbalances crop up in same-sex couples, too. Similar co-parenting principles seem to apply to all parents: Regardless of roles, relationship satisfaction is improved when parents are more supportive and communicative about their division of labor.⠀ •⠀ matrescence motherhoodunplugged motherhoodunfiltered mom moms mother mothers momma mommas matrescencia matreschka matrescense mommy motherhood realmotherhood lifeasamama mommystatus motherhoodjourney mommymode motherhoodrising thatmomlife mymotherhood motherhoodsessions

PROTECTIVE BEHAVIOURS A tricky and difficult topic to teach, one I am not a fan of; just based on the fact it makes me feel awkward and not knowing what to say. This song is perfect! It talks about private parts and underwear in a cute, way, catchy and child like: but still serious and mature enough way. The students loved it and this as well as our many weeks of discussion really is looking like it is sinking it. We have been looking at the times when it is okay to say no, and the things that make your tummy feel “yucky” which is often when we need to say no! Google “talk pants with Pantasaurus” and thank me later!

*New Podcast* Ever feel like you are going through a motherhood identity crisis? 💕 Like somehow you are only a shred of who you used to be? You no longer workout, no longer see friends, no longer make time for your hobbies and you do so all in the name of parenting because parenting is sacrifice right? If this is you, listen up, learn how to NOT lose yourself in motherhood! 💕 I was chatting with a friend who’s recently become a first time mom. Her baby is just turning one and she told me: “I’ve really let myself go”… she described how she hasn’t been to the gym since her pregnancy, how she’s enslaved herself in service of her baby and how she hasn’t been out with her girlfriends in months. If this is you, I’m going to share a mindset shift that will help you break free of victimhood and enslavement parenting – and how your child will benefit greatly from this shift as well. 💕 thatmomlife motherhoodrising honestlymothering stopdropandmom motherhoodintheraw thisismotherhood motherhoodunplugged mommemes momadvice motherhoodquotes realmom magicofmotherhood minimalistmom mommymode wahm simplymamahood intentionalmotherhood momstrong sahm village mamatribe

Are you a night owl? How about your babies- early birds or night owls? Do your schedules match? ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ For most folks we know, the answer to that last question isn't always "yes". The babies especially, don't seem to care that most of us need to get things done all day. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Infants just know that they want to eat, and cuddle and be with you at night time. They don't care about your daytime productivity or your plans. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Many of us come to believe that a lack of sleep is just par for the course with parenting. Somewhere along the way, we've all just accepted it. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ What if we told you that you actually had options, and you didn't have to just power through, exhausted? ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Would you be interested? ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ postpartumdoula nighttimeparenting dcmetromaternity⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ nightnanny newborncarespecialist dcmom newmom momoftwins newborn momlife momsofinstagram sleep sleepdeprived honestmotherhood ohheymama mytinymoments motherhoodrising motherhoodunplugged dailyparenting motherhoodsimplified tiredasamother bedtimeroutine isitbedtimeyet sleepingbaby mommydiary dmvmomtribe chicbusymoms dcmom marylandmom vamom

Obsessed with them and soaking up every last bit of summer 👦🏼👧🏻 I can’t believe school starts next week, or that I have a 2nd grader and a one year old, or that my friend has been gone for almost a year now, that my grandfather and uncle left us 3 weeks ago, or how I am going to be 29 years old next week. I don’t want to complain about time or how quickly it goes because there are so many who don’t have any time left. Instead I want to fully immerse myself in every moment that I can with my kids while they are little and I am here. I want to be present. I want to curate a life Ive lived and soaked in, not settled for. I want to stop being afraid of what people may think and their opinions, and just be whatever I am meant to grow into.

Surprise! Hailee and Kimmy are BOTH sleeping in their own rooms now! HOW? A lot of white noise and repetitively doing the same exact same things at the same time EVERY night. 😅And because we want to be there every moment, without actually physically being there we got the babydelightinc 7” HD Tablet WiFi Monitor. It gives us that added sense of security with being able to check in on Hailee. AND, it’s so funny seeing the things she does when she thinks we’re not looking. She loves to dance, jump up and down in her crib, and mostly sleep when we’re not looking.

“You’ll never look back on life and say, I spent too much time with my kids” - A quote that I think about all the time. . Choosing to stay home with my babies was a big decision that sometimes I wonder whether I made the right one or not. . The days can be exhausting and I think about how much less stressful it would be to go to work. We have to stick to a tighter budget and I think about how much more money we would have if I brought home a paycheck. . But when I get to see the smiles on their faces and make so many new memories with them every single day, I realize that it may not be the career everyone would choose, but it’s the right one for me 💕 . They’ll never be this young again and soon I’ll miss wiping the dirt off their hands and bandaging their boo-boos.
