“Women today struggle with the intense desire to be the “perfect mother”, an ideal that most of us find impossible to achieve. This includes knowing inherently how to care for all the needs of an infant while juggling all the responsibilities and emotions of new motherhood. While many women struggle with negative feelings about their bodies, dissatisfaction with appearance is often strongest while dealing with infertility, pregnancy and postpartum stress. My goal is to provide a safe, supportive environment for women to explore their feelings about the expanding roles as mothers, how to balance marriage, work and family, and still be able to care for themselves and their own needs.”
