Mental Health Tips for Moms: Mother’s Day Edition by Counsellor Barb Egan for Mamas For Mamas in Kelowna, British Columbia and Online
As a mom of three, I love working with other moms. Whether it is in pregnancy counselling and preparing for motherhood, counselling for postpartum depression and anxiety, family/couples/or parenting counselling, or just support during the transition into motherhood, supporting maternal mental health is a passion of mine. I work with moms of newborns to adult children. When moms have a strong mental health foundation, it reverberates into their children, families, and communities. What a legacy! Hence why it is so important we care for moms well, because we are constantly pouring out. And empty cups cannot pour.
I also support a charity called Mamas For Mamas. I have lead groups and counselled many moms through this great organization. This is a little Mother’s Day gift where we wanted to engage our community in Kelowna, British Columbia and beyond the province of British Columbia, Canada, and across the internet. One of the silver linings of COVID is that more moms can access mental health support through flexible online counselling.
In this video, moms across the country were able to submit specific questions (anonymously) for me to answer them. We recorded this on Zoom so we could share on different platforms to reach and encourage as many mamas as possible. Take a listen and please share if anyone you know may also be encouraged 🙂
Or please contact me if I can support your or a mama you know for online counselling, individual counselling, couples counselling, family counselling, or to speak to your group https://alivecounselling.com/contact/
Moms, what you do matters. Who you raise matters. Moms, you matter.
