Dealing With Becoming a Parent

Having a baby brings with it huge changes to almost all aspects of life for the new parents. And, as it is a change that is usually chosen or sought, it can be doubly hard to admit that some of the changes can leave us feeling lonely, exhausted, overwhelmed, bored and miserable. An important first step towards embracing parenthood is letting go of the notion that it’s going to be all good. Letting ourselves accept and deal with the difficult feelings it will bring, along with the great pleasures and excitement, will help to minimise or avoid our tendancy to beat ourselves up for not feeling the way we imagine we should.
