I help stressed out postpartum moms and moms who had a rough childhood become the mother they want to be. You struggle to fall asleep because you find yourself constantly checking that the baby is still breathing. Looking back, you realize your parents failed to give you the emotional (and sometimes physical) safety that you needed, and you are determined to break the cycle. You feel intense pressure to be the best mother, but the stress of the postpartum period is too much. You are not alone. There is help, I provide bilingual therapy for postpartum moms in Ontario (English and French).
What you went through as a child is not your fault and you are worthy of being taken care of. Becoming the parent we want to be is possible, you can give your children the love and support you needed as a child. The cycle of trauma ends with you. Your thoughts can stop spinning and your nervous system has the ability to heal. You can step into your power.
With my warm approach and evidence-based therapy, I will walk alongside you as you own your new role and feel confident in yourself and your parenting, even when you make mistakes (spoiler: we all do). Get started on the path to healing and schedule your free consultation. Learn more on Instagram at: danikhelpsmoms
J'aide les mamans post-partum stressées et les mères ayant vécu des traumatismes d'enfance à devenir la mère qu'elles veulent être. Tu as de la difficulté à s'endormir/à rester endormie parce que tu vérifies constamment si ton bébé respire encore la nuit. Tu ne peux pas supporter que quoi que ce soit puisse arriver à ton bébé et échouer en tant que nouvelle maman. En regardant le passé, tu te rends compte que tes parents ne t'ont pas assuré une sécurité émotionnelle (et parfois physique) et tu veux briser le cycle des traumatismes. C'est une pression énorme à porter, surtout durant la période post-partum.
On peut traverser ça ensemble, ton enfance n'est pas de ta faute. Tu mérites qu'on s'occupe de toi. C'est possible de rendre le lien d'attachement plus fort entre ton bébé et toi et de bien dormir la nuit. La pression que tu ressens d'être l'opposé absolu de qui étaient tes parents peut laisser sa place en échange de la guérison.
Avec mon approche empathique et chaleureuse et en utilisant des thérapies basées sur des données probantes, je vous guiderai vers le bien-être dans votre rôle de mère. Je vous invite à faire demande pour une consultation gratuite en visitant mon site web. Pour plus d'informations, visitez mon Instagram à danikhelpsmoms .
