THE NEW MAMA
When I became pregnant I was elated.
The mixture of joy and confusion, and the identity of who I thought I would and should be as a mother and professional was overwhelming at times...
I was comparing myself and didn't know the answer to countless questions that arose.
The Coursework helped me to get really clear about who I am and what I really need (and need to do) going forward.
I created a plan. And purpose.
Through the journal (which was surprisingly easy in my routine, even with a newborn)
I discovered more acceptance of myself, genuine enjoyment through physical changes and am truly happy.
...because I learned to care for myself, I care better for my daughter and teach her the same.
