Becoming a parent for the first (or subsequent) time can be hard! Sleep struggles, waking up and not being able to get back to sleep due to worry, feeling unable to cope and feeling alone can of course feel overwhelming.

Some parents experience unwanted thoughts, some mothers worry about leaving their baby and returning to work. Some parents feel that guilt  that anxiety is affecting the kind of parent they wanted to be.

Some feel angry and are confused as to why this is.

You are not the only parent feeling like this! A lot of the above is normal and may well pass as things settle down. Increased worry when you become a parent is normal and inevitable, but it isn’t something you just have to live with!

You don’t have to put up with feeling anxious and you can enjoy or get back to enjoying mother or fatherhood.
