When Charlotte was about 1½ years old, I felt totally depleted, completely stressed out, and pretty much alone, even though I had a close relationship with my husband.
Charlotte needed me, but I was in such a state of exhaustion. I didn’t know how I could continue giving her my everything and keep going at the same nonstop pace I’d been going at since she arrived.
With the help of a loving parent coach, I began to learn about the gift of self-awareness and how to identify my own needs and trigger points.
I learned that self-care isn’t selfish, and I deserved the same gentle, loving care I showed our daughter.
Since those early days of exhaustion, I’ve made it my mission to help mothers all over the world to understand that there is another way to approach motherhood… a way that doesn’t ignore your own needs, but instead puts them FIRST.
This may sound counterintuitive at first, but your child will actually thrive even more, feel more balanced and stable, when you begin recognizing and meeting your own needs first.
