Bringing a new life into the world is a profound and transformative experience that can evoke a crisis in your identity - your understanding of yourself and the world around you.
One aspect of your identity you noticed that changed overnight was your social identity. Navigating changes in friendships leaves you questioning which social connections are authentic and when/if you will ever fit back into an existing social group.
A deeper level of postpartum identity is transitioning from your original family to your created family. It will likely bring up conflicting emotions of guilt, shame, anger, or fear.
Therapy provides a safe space to process and heal from the experiences of insecure attachment, enabling you to redefine yourself beyond the constraints of your past and be confident in the parent you strive to be.
