Owning It: Why my anxiety soared after having a baby

For this episode, I am joined by Layla O'Mara, founder of Nuanua.com, a wonderful online resource with courses that nurture mamas in their postpartum journey. Layla was someone I turned to in a moment of desperation, when I found myself, having come home from hospital with my new baby boy, feeling as though I had plummeted to the depths of anxiety. I didn't feel happy or excited or relieved, I felt consumed by anxiety, physically and emotionally. It's not nice to say this out loud, but it took me a while to feel happy. Layla here explains where this postpartum anxiety comes from, why it makes complete sense and how you, as a listener, can help yourself if you find yourself in the same position. I hope you find this helpful. Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/owningittheanxietypodcast.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
