PULLING ON THE THREADS OF MOTHERHOOD... AND STITCHING THEM BACK TOGETHER
When trying to unravel an idea as big as motherhood, where do you begin?
UNRAVELING MOTHERHOOD seeks to answer that question . . . yet we each have our own understanding of what motherhood entails. As these preconceived ideas falter and fail during the many intense, exhausting and overwhelming periods of motherhood, we begin to doubt our ability to be a mother. We begin to doubt ourselves.
We begin to unravel. Yet through this process, we can find our own truth, identity, and purpose by challenging the assumptions we have about motherhood and ourselves.
UNRAVELING MOTHERHOOD offers real insights on maternal mental health, identity, vulnerability, and more for anyone who is lost in the blur of the voices in their minds. Drawn from real-life experiences, UNRAVELING MOTHERHOOD provides much-needed support for anyone navigating this beautiful, wonderful, terrifying stage of their life. And, by teaching skills to combat self-criticism, accept our own flaws and cultivate a positive mindset, it offers a motivational toolkit for mothers both old and new.
Motherhood is a tightly woven knot of physical, mental, emotional and social changes. But it doesn’t need to be. When the pattern is not working out the way we hoped, we must first untangle to start again — before stitching it back up, stronger than ever.
