Every time a baby is born a mother is too. This workshop explores the psychological process women go through in developing a new identity as a mother and the “emotional pains” it can entail. This workshop also explores how professional counseling can help women to successfully integrate their new identity as confident and healthy mothers. Lastly the workshop will explore in general how professional counseling can help mothers recover from postpartum mood disorders that can partly result from the struggle to integrate their new identity.
