I love the work I do with mothers and babies, I do! Moms are unappreciated and do far more than we ever give them credit for. It is my pleasure to help overwhelmed moms to enjoy their lives again.
But there is one moment which I find especially hard and nothing changes inside of me– it is always hard and I get way too emotional. It is the time of the last session when I have to say to all of them that the program have reached the end, that it’s time for them to go and live their life using all we have learned, to trust their mother’s hearts and keep the friendship alive. Yes, it happened again, another group of women (it is the tenths one in my work in Blenheim!) finished the "Postpartum Rallying"- a 12 week program that supports group mothers in their postpartum journey.
Every group is absolutely unique and every journey is unrepeatable. Every group enriches my life and touches my heart watch. Every group has its dynamics and different results. But every time we all exercise the capacity to watch and learn, suspend any judgement and the impulse to intervene; to meet people as people, as subjects of their own sovereign lives, not as objects; to understand the cruel reality of motherhood and… to support each other.
This time I feel a strong desire to say thank you to each women for breaking the silence and the ring of shame and to speak openly about their experience. It never happened before and it’s a beginning of a different approach and it gives hope to help more women. Thank you, Dear Ones for speaking loud on behalf of all postpartum women.
