Like you, I have struggled with so many things once I became a mother.  Have you ever felt like no matter how much you do it’s never good enough? Or that you and your husband are just coasting through life because things have gotten so crazy that there’s never enough time for just the two of you? Yup, been there too.

I’ll share with you my story and open up about my very own struggles with depression, guilt and not feeling good enough. We’ll connect and build a community of women just like you and me to laugh and cry together in a judgement free zone.

MY OPEN LETTER TO MOMS

After I had Jaden, I shared with you all how I experienced a little depression (which you can read about here). Once I had him, I felt like my world came to a complete halt. As I sat on maternity leave watching the world continue to move without me, I felt so much anxiety about […]
