Coping with postnatal depression - Being a mum

Modern life has left many mums feelings overwhelmed, stressed and depressed as a result of trying to ‘do it all’. The role of ‘mother’ has significantly changed over the past 70 years. The role is no longer clearly defined. Whilst the modern era allows women to have the same rights as men, many women have had to adopt both the traditional male and female household and career roles - so life has in fact become harder for many career women - especially career mothers.

Many mothers find themselves feeling stressed, tired, fed-up and riddled with guilt. The helpformums website has been designed to help mothers reduce stress, anxiety/fear and depression which is often the by-products of all the pressure many mothers experience in modern life. The Perfect Mum book deals specifically with issues many mums talk about amongst themselves, but often feel embarrassed to admit in open forums.

Being a mum is the hardest and most fulfulling job in the world. When you become a mum you embark on a new journey to care for your precious little fragile child - with very little real training. You learn the basics of child care, but no-one prepares you for the emotional rollercoaster of motherhood. Along the way you either research or are given advice on the best ways to look after your child, but how can these theories be true for everyone when every child is different. If your child does not appear to be perfect, or you feel like you’re not coping as well as other mums, the guilt, anxiety and depression can easily sink in.
