As the world becomes more fragmented, community life becomes stagnant, cities become taller, and families become smaller, as new mothers, we find ourselves lost. Thrown into a sea of anxious Google searches and emotionally strung community forums, highly targeted online ads for useless baby products, pressure from the media (and other women) to breastfeed, and lack of support from businesses on paternity leave, how do we even cope?
This site started because a lonely mother was having a hard time accepting her new life and she wanted to create a space for new mothers who need support.
Being a mother fills our hearts with happiness and love, in other ways it makes us feel inept and frankly, insane. The emotional reality of it all is quite mixed. Happy New Mum is the real experience, from real mamas. We are here to help. A group of mamas sharing their experiences on pregnancy, post-birth, breastfeeding, work-life balance, and more.
Our goal is to make maternal mental health mainstream and place more importance on self-love and self-care, so we would love for you to join our community and help spread the word!
If you are looking for support, please get in touch with one of our mentors and check out our resources page.
