Your mental health is as important as your physical health. Here at Kensington Mums, we have always emphasised the importance of self care for mothers, and we are huge advocates about it. Our founder is a regular speaker on this topic, after she suffered from PND.
We are sharing this article to the mothers out there, who are struggling in silence and who may feel alone. To the working mothers, who are juggling it all between work, life and kids. To the single mothers, who are doing it all alone. We are here for you and we hear you.
They say it takes a village to raise a child, we say it takes a village to raise a mother. Nothing prepares us for what is yet to come when we become parents and mothers. Through our own experience, we learn and grow into motherhood. Its a blessing to be a mother, to have someone call you Mama. Think of all the women out there wishing to become mothers. Its unconditional love.
To the mothers who feel like they can’t keep It together anymore- we know about the silent battles no one knows you’re fighting.
The tears no one knows you cry.
The fatigue your body is going through.
The night’s sleep you are craving.
The problems you maybe facing with family, colleagues and friends.
Its okay not to be ok. It’s okay to not have all the answers. Nobody is perfect!
Just know one thing, that you are doing your best. Remember the person who were before being a mother, and that person matter. You matter. You got this. Seek help from professionals or friends who trust. Know there is light at the end of the tunnel. Believe in yourself. You are enough.
When it becomes too much to handle, know that you are not alone and other mothers are there with you.
