Just when I'm feeling a bit unappreciated, frustrated (with home life, not with baby), tired, alone - I get a call from a nurse from the local health unit. Asking if there was anything I needed from them.
I said, "What have you got?"
They offer support to moms who have PPD, they answer questions about baby's heath, answer questions about mom's health (seriously, about this tear that's not healing...) and they have drop in sessions for new moms.
I bit on the drop in sessions.
They're every Wednesday, not far from my place for two hours in the afternoon. She says that it's very popular in my area and lots of moms go. She said that moms get to talk and visit and relate to each other and the things we are going though. And lots of moms stay friends long after the drop-ins. There is also a guest speaker every week who talks about different topics.
I'm sold. At least to try it out. I'm just bummed that she called too late in the day and I have to wait a week.
It's like she knew I needed that call. Or is it at the 2 month mark that everyone starts to struggle with feeling a bit shitty inside and out?
