Women continue to face unique challenges in our society. The “mental load of motherhood”, a phrase coined by writer Jami Ingledue speaks to the difficulty we face as the default parent and primary decision makers regarding our children’s wellbeing. This is made more complicated when as moms we also may have careers and care for aging parents. Women also often cope with unique medical and psychological issues including postpartum depression, anxiety or difficulty adjusting to parenthood, infertility, pregnancy loss, reproductive-related disorders, and other health issues.
""We don't have to do it all alone. We were never meant to."
- Brené Brown"
Women are more prone to experience feelings of shame, or to develop anxiety and depression, often as a result of these stressors. We are also often called upon to be in charge of monitoring the health of our committed relationships, thereby caring for everyone around us, often neglecting our own needs. The therapists at Women’s Counseling of Nashua understand because we’ve been there, too. Make a commitment now to get the support you deserve.
