Parenting Support Packages
Why We Do This
areer with infants and their families in Neonatal Intensive Care Units in the Greater Toronto Area. My time as a Nurse and as a Mom has led me to become an advocate for Maternal and Infant mental health and well being.
In 2018, I gave birth to my son. I found myself completely unprepared for how the postpartum period and journey into motherhood would change me. I was overwhelmed by everyone’s constant opinions about how I should parent. With all the noise around me I found it very hard to listen to the Mother that lived inside of me. It wasn’t until my son was 13 months old that I realized the toll that constantly fighting my instincts had taken. After 13 months I was exhausted and overwhelmed. I was diagnosed with Postpartum Anxiety and finally found a circle of support that gave me permission to listen to my instincts and believe that I was the best mother for my baby.
Parenting From Within is the resource I wish I had as I made the transition to Motherhood. My hope is that the tools, information, encouragement and comfort you find here helps to make your transition to parenthood a little smoother.
