Real Mom Fears – We All Have Them
Motherhood is no joke. Nothing can prepare you for it; it’s simply life changing. So of course it comes with fears, real mom fears – we all have them.
Fears vary depending on what stage of motherhood we are in and depending on our personality. I remember as a new mom, I feared my baby . . . yes, my baby. I was afraid I wouldn’t know how to take care of her, how to feed her properly, how to read her when something was wrong, . . . . how to protect her. I was so afraid of her getting sick, that I hardly left the house with her the first 3 months of her life. I didn’t want visitors because they’d have germs and I didn’t know how to politely ask them to wash their hands before touching her. My fears were so REAL.
These days I have a whole range of fears. The most extreme is that of losing her, either by her being taken away by someone or by death. I sometimes think I’m crazy for even thinking that and shut the idea out of my mind. However, all it takes is to watch the news to realize how REAL that fear is and although I can’t let it define me, I do need to find a way to address it.
In this episode of our podcast, Claudia and I discuss some real mom fears. We know you have some of your own and we don’t want you to ever feel like you are alone in your mom fears. We may not have solutions for them, but sometimes it’s comforting to just have a community of mothers who understand you.
