At the start of the motherhood journey, you will learn to hold and cautiously protect your little darling and venture into the new unknown challenge and future. Naturally, you will start to have a lot of worry, fatigue, anxiety and wonder whether you are able to give the best and make sure your little darling will grow healthily and happily.
Being a mother means being completely and totally overwhelmed by love, joy, responsibility, and selflessness.
After giving birth, a mother looks at her newborn baby happily but her worry never stops and emotions may fill her up most of the time. Slowly, without intervention, an overwhelmed mother may develop postpartum depression or social anxiety.
