Becoming a mother isn't always easy. If it's been harder than you thought it would be, or you're struggling to find your sense of self, we encourage you to get support. Visit jennyslight.org for information about postpartum support groups and other resources. These groups are a safe, welcoming space for women to gather and discuss the not-so-easy parts of motherhood. It gives you a space to share stories, build your village of other supportive moms, discuss realistic expectations, learn when to seek help, and develop strategies for self care.
