Dear New Mom,
Congratulations on this new stage in life. It will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced — a mix of joy and sorrow that will sometimes feel overwhelming but will always feel rewarding. And right now, there’s a good chance that you’re wondering how you’re going to keep your wits about you through the next couple of decades as you raise this child (and perhaps others to come) in a complicated world. You’ll want to protect your children, and of course you’ll do your best, but you’ll often feel helpless.
