Instead of doing a guest interview on this important topic, I'm speaking directly to you in today's episode. If you're like most new moms, you've likely realized how under-prepared you were to take on new motherhood. Add breastfeeding challenges to the mix, and we might feel like we're doing this all wrong. I'm here to tell you that motherhood is sometimes traumatic. If it's been traumatizing for you, you aren't alone, nothing is wrong with you, and there is a way through it. Listen in as I share stories from my own journey and guide you to working through your own motherhood PTSD.
In today's episode, Dr. Lydiana Garcia, licensed psychologist, joins us to talk about postpartum mental health. We dive deep into strategies for mental and emotional wellness, as well as discuss how past trauma can affect your transition into motherhood. Dr. Garcia shares a compassionate approach and realistic tips for navigating this huge life transition of becoming a new mother, while sharing her own journey of breastfeeding and her second pregnancy.
