In 2014, I gave birth to my beautiful daughter and I became a mother. Being pregnant is a blessing and the most incredible feeling that a mother will go through. You should expect to enjoy your months being pregnant and carrying your child. But it wasn't in my case, this was due to the fact I was dealing with depression. I was miserable with motion sickness for over nine months. I also didn't have the best support that you would expect from your love ones. I suffered with suicidal thoughts, severe migraines and painful sciatica.
During this fragile time and joyous moment, you should be stress free and always happy with normal tendencies of what expecting mothers should go through. I'm not saying I didn't get any support but I wouldn't want anyone to go through with what I went through. My partner at that time was dealing with addiction and pain medication for his back. Which led him to make horrible choices, one was using our rent money to purchase his medication. Because he was dealing with his withdrawal symptoms, it made me suffer with depression with the thoughts of how will we pay for our bills. I also had to deal with his anger issues, which heighten his condition due to the medication.
When I was dealing with the decision of having to stop myself from taking any medications due to my migraines and cutting myself by ending my life. I had to dig deep inside myself and pray that I will get through this and leave it to our father God. How dare I cause harm to myself and one of the most precious gift from heaven? I persevered and when my daughter was born, I was so thankful that no harm or stress came to my child. I vouched to never think that way, to always pray and cast out and rebuke the ill feelings and demons that surround me. At that time, I lost my friendship with a long time friend who I thought would always be there for me. I was not in the best emotional state as I was still dealing with my partner. But they say trials and tribulations can turn into your testimony and I can attest and believe it.
I have been in the spa and wellness industry for quite a while but never specialized or had the desire to really focus on one modality. But my ordeal inspired me to want to work with prenatal care and that I found my purpose. I want to let women know that it doesn't have to be that way. Whether you are dealing with someone suffering from an addiction but especially if you are pregnant. This should be the best and most memorable time of yours and your child. It is a sacred time and a bond that should be spent and experienced with love and care.
My wish is to reach future mothers out there and that by sharing my story, I am not only able to reach out and share my experience but also inspire. I want to show that pregnancy is a natural journey that all mothers will go through and there is help and power in nurturing your whole being with wholistic healing. I also want to show ways of lessening the pain that any women will go through during pregnancy. To remind them to enjoy the path that they are about to embark, a beautiful journey ahead. I look forward to meeting future and current mothers who will become pregnant. May you encounter an abundance of good energy, health and blessings your way. Namaste!
