Do you feel like you have to live up to an unrealistic ideal as a mom?
The truth is, there are MANY ways to be a good mom and it does NOT depend on some of the things you may hear time and time again (@newmomsforum we won’t be ever telling you that)!!
Things like whether or not your baby latches, how hard or easy you find motherhood to be, how fulfilled you are, how well you can do it alone.
These expectations can add to the overwhelming feeling new moms feel 😕 because they are unrealistic.
It shouldn’t be complicated: A good mom is one that loves her child, makes time to care for herself and is doing the best she can.
Contrary to popular belief, there are no perfect mothers! Only infinitely good mothers! No matter what anyone may tell you. We feel it’s something new moms need to hear more!
