The article provides advice on how psychotherapists can help new mothers face the challenges of raising a family. According to the author, due to the challenges linked to childbearing and child rearing, mothers are more prone to have depressive moods and feel more stressed than fathers. One of the ways to help mothers make sense of motherhood is to honor their journey. The author says that psychotherapists should encourage mothers to pay attention to their body.
