"Everyday feels like it is 1000 hours long."
"I’ve never been so tired in my life. If only I could sleep a few solid hours maybe everything would be okay"
"I had no idea how hard this would be. Maybe I’m just not cut out to be a mother"
"I am so worried that something bad is going to happen to my baby. I check on her constantly. I can’t relax or focus"
"The thoughts I’m having are scaring me. I could never tell anyone what I’m really thinking or they’ll think I’m crazy"
"Everything feels so hard. Everything I do feels like such an effort"

“What is a butterfly?

  • “It’s an instant in time when everything feels right. It’s a thing, or a look, or a feeling. It’s a sense, or an energy that grabs us from behind, often when we are not looking. Most of the time, it is fleeting. Sometimes, it rests right in front of us. We cannot see it if we do not look for it. If we aren’t mindful, we will miss it, and it will be gone. If we find it, it’s exquisite.”

    - Karen Kleiman (Excerpt from Therapy and the Postpartum Woman)
