Episode 11
1h 13m | Mar 14, 2022

Mental health can seem taboo and definitely not the first thing on your mind as a soon to be or new mother. Mental health for moms prenatal, postnatal, perinatal is so very important for her wellbeing. So we focused in on not just postpartum mental health but the health before, during, and after birth to help moms understand that at all points if you ae feeling overwhelmed, just bearing with it, or like you are about to get to a point of not being in control that it is okay to get help and for as long as you need starting from the point you need it. You are mom but you don’t have to bear it or be strong alone. I sat down with Perinatal Wellness Coach The Doula Therapist of Golden Aura Wellness Niketa Pechan and we had a great conversation about stigmas, recognizing the signs, when to get help, where to get help, and how to get help among other things. Listen in and join us.
