Hi, I’m Celine, mom of a little boy and passionate about emotional health, self-care and motherhood. Like most expecting mamas, I had not focused on anything beyond the birth during pregnancy. Becoming a mother shook me to the core in a way that I did notexpect. I was struck by the exhaustion and emotional upheaval of early motherhood. In retrospect, this shouldn’t have surprised me: as a highly sensitive person, transitions don’t sit well with me and I need tools to process them.
Being a self-help junkie, I looked for resources online to help me navigate this transition emotionally. But all I could find were information about Post natal depression and programs for mother of older kids. So I began to develop my own self-care practices and adapted them for early motherhood.
I started to treat myself as a newborn mother who needed as much care and patience as my newborn baby. My perception of early motherhood began to shift. I saw the first stages of motherhood as a rite of passage. It turned out to be a perfect opportunity to practice mindfulness and gratitude. I decided to share these practices here so that new mamas can feel supported during this profound transition
