To all the mamas to be out there, it’s okay to feel a bit overwhelmed right now
I just wanted to do a little post to acknowledge how tough things are right now, there is no denying it. I’ve purposely not tried to fill my page full of stuff to with coronavirus as I want to support people positively, but the sad reality is – its my duty to acknowledge its stupid existence and how its effecting us.
I’ve been in contact with a few of my pregnant clients and it pains me to know the struggles they are going through – its a crap situation and you deserve much much more.
To all the pregnant mamas out there, to the birth partners, to the family members – its okay if this all feels a bit overwhelming, because it is. Its a chuffing pandemic.
This time of your life is so special and its pants that you can’t fully enjoy it with those you love. It okay to be anxious about going to appointments, not knowing what to expect when it comes to labour and how this virus has impacted that.
It’s okay to feel overwhelmed and upset if your birth preferences have changed or if your whole birthing and postnatal plans have changed – I get it, I really do.
One thing to remember is that you ARE NOT alone, there are people crying out to support you, people like me and my other hypnobirthing teacher colleagues, doulas, NHS midwives, independent midwives, doctors.. I could go on and on, we are here for you. You don’t have to feel like you need to use our services but you can use us as sounding boards if you need that extra bit of support. We are here for you.
Better days are coming, look forward to those, the time you get to meet your baby for the first time. It will all be worth it mama – you are stronger than you know.
Ready to feel empowered and get ready for your birth?
