Special Episode: My Maternal Mental Health, on Maternal Mental Health Week 2021 Coaching Uncovered Podcast

    • Business

In this special episode recorded and released on Maternal Mental Health week 2021 (10th - 14th May) I wanted to share some of the recent, and past, mental health struggles I've been experiencing to highlight the complexity of maternity mental health.
Please note there's a trigger/content warning for mental health, trauma and baby loss.
Highlights of the episode include:
13:54 - It doesn't matter really what it is (the reason), it matters that it's happening
15:11 - I expected myself to be very anxious as a parent, and to my surprise that hasn't happened
13:25 - It also helps of course...Hope is such a happy baby, it makes me want to cry
16:08 - if you've ever wanted a baby full-stop, and if you've ever wanted one and gone to hell and high-water to have one, it's a joy to experience
17:02 - I would probably say my mental health support is the least (professionally) it's ever been
17:26 - I'm actually on the cusp of that (finding the right support again) - this is very fresh for me
1936: In my experience, maternal mental health issues haven't come in isolation
19:55 what I'm experiencing now IS as a result of my history and my IN ability and ABility to cope - both of those things...in addition to a heavy bought of lack of self-compassion
20:39 - this is tough because none of it's very easy to pick apart and separate 
21:26 This is selfishly a place that I wanted to share some stuff that's been happening to me
In the episode I made reference to:
All in the Mind Podcast - memory during the pandemic
