Becoming a mother is a unique experience for each of us, but for every new mother it is like sailing a ship in unchartered waters. Transitioning to motherhood is a massive undertaking. So much time and energy is invested in preparing for the birth of our babies, but very few of us are really ready for what lies ahead. Sleep deprivation is relentless in the first months of parenthood and there is simply no getting away from this! Long nights of deep sleep, followed by lazy weekend lie ins are a thing of the past. Once we become mothers, we develop an instinct of being protector of this new little life. It’s a life-changing event and women never go back to exactly the way they were before having a baby.
All women who book in for courses at Joymamma are invited to join a private Facebook group to keep in touch with other women on the same journey.
Great friendships are being formed and the support and advice this community of mums can provide is vital for all new mums. Crucial support is available, should you need to reach out. Coffee mornings, walks and other social activities are a wonderful way to surround yourself with like-minded women.
