Having conversations around difficult postpartum emotions can feel tough. This downloadable worksheet will help you communicate how you’re actually feeing.
With motherhood comes a surge of hormonal changes, intense emotions, and often sleepless nights. It can feel tricky or almost shameful to communicate the complex thoughts and feelings on your mind, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t speak up.
Motherhood Understood designed the below worksheet to help you and your support team get on the same page about how you’re feeling.
It’s essential to remember that self-advocacy is critical in your postpartum days – and beyond – to ensure you’re receiving the proper care you deserve. We invite you to reflect, fill it out, and begin to have the necessary conversations around your mental health. Your mental health matters.
