“This life is mine alone. So I have stopped asking people for directions to places they’ve never been.”
Hi, I’m Brandy, a trained perinatal mental health counselor and a mother. While I'm not sure "it" will ever be easy, what I do know about early parenthood is:
it's better with others
science can help
we can all heal
My level of confidence is really high. I am so very free. I'm free from the norms and what I'm supposed to be. I wanted to tell you.
Strong Like A Mother
Casual, supportive, informative & fun. We'll talk about challenges of new parenthood, develop connections, give and receive support, and observe our own radical unfolding as newborn mothers.
"Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
The world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things."
- Mary Oliver, Wild Geese excerpt
