Parenthood is tough on a regular basis. However, for some moms, every day can be a struggle.
I’ve been a stepmom for the last four years. Five years to my biological daughter.
My skills of motherhood were learned early due to me raising my siblings some of the time.
When I moved away from my home state of Florida, then became a mom, life was suddenly very different.
Things got a lot harder very quickly especially with my partner being gone most of the time.
Being alone was tough, especially recovering from an emergency C-section.
Or if she hasn’t recently delivered, she could be having a hard time balancing life.
With multiple children, life can be stressful and mom brain happens.
All of that aside, here are some tips on how to help a fellow struggling mother.
Helping is something most people would like to do, however, it can be difficult to know where to start.
How can every day be a struggle for her?
- postpartum depression
- pain from post-delivery
- being exhausted from frequent feedings
- almost never being able to leave the baby alone
- lack of sleep
- lack of strength
- lack of motivation
- traveling can be difficult for a new mom
How to help her
- offer help with basic tasks like small chores or grocery shopping.
- listen to what she feels is overwhelming her
- provide genuine words of encouragement
