While I was at home with a baby and my friends were enjoying there youth, not only was I was having really bad FOMO (fear of missing out) but I was struggling to balance work and motherhood. If it wasn’t for my mom friends I would have went through severe depression.
Having friends that have experienced similar issues makes what your going through much easier to talk about. Sometimes we share all the good and happy news but don’t like to talk about the ugly side of motherhood. The side that causes your hormones to rage in ways you never knew. I experienced extreme sadness, anxiety and self doubt after my third child and was diagnosed with postpartum depression.
