  • Calm your thoughts before they spiral into tornados of worry

As a brand new mom, I remember holding my three- month-old baby and thinking, “This isn’t what I expected motherhood to feel like.”

Jessica VanderWier

Registered Psychotherapist (MA) & Founder of Our Mama Village

I was exhausted, overwhelmed and struggling with anxiety. As I scrolled through my phone while nursing my newborn, I compared myself to other moms. They seemed to lovemotherhood and be thriving in their new role. What was wrong with me?

Although I loved my daughter, I didn’t feel happy. I longed to be present with my baby and enjoy my new role as a mom but instead, I was overcome with anxiety… and shame.

If those words resonate with you, please know you’re not alone. Motherhood is hard to prepare for: you’re learning how to take care of a baby, while re-discovering who you are as an individual and a mom. The early years of motherhood can be really difficult on our mental wellbeing!

“Calming Anxiety in Motherhood is the course I wish I had as a new mom.”

Guided by my personal journey with anxiety and my background as a Psychotherapist, this course will help you calm racing thoughts and feel more present in your daily life.
