Find support for concerns related to motherhood through counseling for moms.
They said it would be hard, but no one ever feels fully prepared for how hard this whole parenting thing really is. Those first few months, sometimes years, feel like a fight to survive on some days. Maybe you catch yourself scrolling hopelessly through your Facebook feed. You might feel envious of the friends who still seem to be living your old life. You may be wondering if you’ll ever find your rhythm. Maybe you’re not even sure if you and your partner still like each other. You might even feel guilty for missing your old life, before the arrival of this sweet baby that you prayed and hoped so hard for. You are not alone.
