This is a non-judgemental space for you to discharge some of the load, to talk about what concerns you and have someone who can just listen and be there for you. And if you need further professional help, I will inform you about the options you can choose from.
IS THIS YOU?
You were told this would be the best moment of your life. You want to enjoy every second of motherhood but you feel exhausted and guilty for thinking that life with a baby is a burden and that it is further taking a toll on your self worth…
You find difficult to be so fully and intimately needed by your baby
that you don´t recognise yourself anymore.
I know how it´s like to feel lost after becoming a mother. You feel overwhelmed trying to understand your baby and enjoy motherhood but all you are feeling is guilty, exhausted, and that you are not as good enough as you wanted to be as a mother.
You feel like there is nothing left from the old you and you are trying to figure out where you are going. You are giving so much from yourself to your baby, who is so dependent on you that you feel there is no energy left in your mind for your NEW YOU.
That was me on my first journey through motherhood.
I knew that becoming a mother had changed me in ways that I couldn´t explain. For years I studied infant development, parent-infant relationships, and infant mental health, trying to look for answers.
I learned the hard and long way until I was capable to acknowledge the good things and own the not so good things about myself.
There is no such thing as a perfect parent.
Good-enough is just perfect.
That is why I created The Holding Mother Sessions, so you can understand where you are coming from as a woman before looking at yourself as a mother.
This will move you from feeling lost in your identity, as you will become aware of where you are now and where you came from. You will look at your baby's individuality and that will make you more confident about the new and hard task of caring for a baby.
It will help to reveal yourself, feel less guilt, more generous and compassionate about yourself, and more connected to your baby´s needs.
Sometimes, deeper professional help is needed, but you don´t know where to start and are concerned about raising it with your GP. I can guide you through your feelings and together we can think about what professional help you might want to look for if you think that you might need it.

start a journey of self-reflection and connectedness
in your motherhood journey.
WHAT NO ONE TELLS YOU...
Is that together with your baby,
a new identity is also being born.
You are transitioning from woman to mother.
And it will be
the greatest developmental leap
you will ever experience.
