This video, created by KidCareCanada, discusses feelings of guilt and worthlessness that may keep a new mother from asking for help. She may not want to bother other people, may be worried others will judge her as a “bad mother”, or may not recognize she needs help. Everyone can work to ensure a new mother feels safe and supported.
