After seven years of treating patients, I have lost count of the number of moms who have come to me saying the words, "I hate motherhood". Through tear filled eyes, women open up about life as a new mom and their struggle to connect with this new role they are thrust into.
The resounding feeling amongst these women is that they feel like a unicorn amongst the sea of moms they see on social media who seemingly love motherhood.
They often suffer alone, embarrassed to share their feelings with anyone.
The thing is though, these feelings are so very common and talking about it out loud can be one of the best ways to heal. "Me too" are the two most powerful words in the English language after all.
In episode 54 of It's Not About the Food, Julie Kimock joins me for a great conversation about motherhood, transitions, and control. She is one of the brave one's who are willing to be transparent and show other moms that photos are one dimension of someone's life.
Join us if you are in need of a "me too" and for a look inside one person's story of REAL motherhood.
