Natural Moms Podcast #75

February 27, 2008

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

This week on the show I am joined by Cheryl Wenzel of Becoming a Mother. Cheryl aims to provide support and information to new moms to help them ease the transition to new motherhood.

Often, there is a big disconnect between what a woman envisions and what her postpartum experience is actually like. This can lead to feelings of surprise and let down. Cheryl shares her own personal experiences during the early months – as a mother of twins no less! – and shares some valuable advice to help women prepare as best as they can for becoming a mom.

We also discussed the many facets of postpartum depression and how pregnant moms can take steps now to have a healthier entry into motherhood.

Mom’s groups are becoming more popular and they can help new moms connect and get out of the house, but there is also a danger that Cheryl refers to as “culture of motherhood” in which moms are scared to be honest about their struggles.
