“As long as you have a happy healthy baby”
This saying has crossed the lips of so many women and their loved ones. They’re words that we offer for support to new mothers, and they’re words new mothers say to themselves. These words however, can be silencing. They silence the mothers and couples who have just endured what can be an extremely overwhelming event - the birth of a child. The arrival of a baby can be a life-changing, beautiful moment. It can also be described as scary, overwhelming, and even traumatic.
