How to help a struggling mom

Sharing is caring!

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
  • overwhelm
  • stress
  • anxiety

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
