91: Therapist perspective: Psychotherapy with new moms
< 1 day ago
There are some powerful experiences that new moms go through when coming in to psychotherapy. Moms who are pregnant, experienced a loss, birth trauma or postpartum are often transforming in to a new version of themselves. Here's what we reflect on... *These moms are brave and strong. *New motherhood is a mirror. Sometimes a magnifying glass. *Motherhood makes your heart open and can make you a deeper sense of vulnerability, anxiety, be in touch from deeper feelings. That can happen for partners too. *Working through some of the pain leads to healthier lives. *Therapy helps you understand that it's not "you" it's what you're going through. *You can heal through past events that are impacting you now. *You are not alone and you can feel better!

Thank God for Dr. Kat!!!
I've listened to the first 3 podcasts by Dr. Kat and Shoshana Bennett and cannot tell you how relieved I was to hear them talking so openly about all this. My story mirrors almost exactly Dr. Kat's when she shared her story in the "My Postpartum Story" podcast, with the difference being that I've always dealt with anxiety, depression, and some intrusive thoughts my whole life. But my depression and intrusive thoughts became worse after having each of my kids (and so did my mood swings!). Even though my kids are 3 and almost 5, I am finally figuring out what has been happening to me since becoming a mom. And that I don't choose to have these feelings! And that I am a good mom! And that I am not alone anymore! I thank God for crossing my path with Dr. Kat and can't wait to catch up on the other podcasts!!! Because Dr. Kat had the courage to share her story, I now feel I have the courage to share my story to help other moms too. I am truly grateful for Dr. Kat's work.
