We’re In This Together: Steph

I was happy to participate in the We’re in this Together campaign because the knowledge that so many other moms were going through the same thing as me was so comforting throughout my personal journey. I wouldn’t say I am happy to have gone through my PPD struggles, but the fact that I came out the other end with an optimistic dream of the future, gives me a feeling of victory. The first year of my second son’s life was one of the most amazing and also the toughest of my life. I learned so much about myself, what I am capable of, and what I need in my life to take care of me. Women give their all to their families, all their love, all their thoughts and dreams start to focus on family, we forget that we are people too. I am important, I deserve to be happy and healthy, I deserve time to myself, I am a person too. I remind myself of this often, when my family tries to take more of me than I have to give. I am a person too, I am important, I deserve to be happy and healthy. I know that allowing myself to believe this will lead to a better life for my children, who are the most amazing achievement in my life. To the new moms, moms struggling to make it to tomorrow; reach out, there are so many wonderful people out there who want to help. The world is better with you in it, your baby’s world is better with you in it.

We’re In This Together: Daisy

This project means so much to me. The Good Mother Project found me at a really hard point after my second daughter was born. I was having a really hard time talking about it or admitting I was struggling. A friend had posted on Facebook about an event called ‘Mommin’ Aint Easy”, and it took so much nerve for me to show up to this event, but I felt that it was something I needed to do. I felt really vulnerable just showing up, but I am so glad I did. After these brave mothers shared their experiences with the group, I hung about putting off the reality that was waiting for me at home with 2 under 2…then a few moms struck up a conversation with me, and we realized we lived in the same community, they immediately invited me into their book club. I will never forget this gesture and how kind-hearted these women were. All of a sudden I didn’t feel alone, even though at that point everything in my life was overwhelmingly impossible. I knew that I now had an amazing community of women to rely on, with no judgement. From that day forward, the GMP mothers have been there for me, even when they didn’t know it, and for this I’m eternally grateful. Being a mom is hard, but if we can help each other up on those hard days, we can get through it together, as a community.
