NICU Moms - You Deserve Some Self-Compassion!

EveryTinyThing

I can’t even begin to count the number of NICU mothers I’ve met who are so hard on themselves, with guilt, anger, jealousy and more.

And I totally understand where these emotions come from!

But I also see how destructive these feelings are, and it breaks my heart to watch a vulnerable mother - who is already overwhelmed, frightened & stressed out about her baby - beating herself up over something she had no control over and would have done anything to prevent. And the negativity towards oneself can go on for years!

When I learned about the concept of Self-Compassion, I knew right away that it was a concept that might help NICU mamas everywhere.

Instead of mercilessly judging and criticizing yourself for various inadequacies or shortcomings, self-compassion means you are kind and understanding when confronted with personal failings – after all, who ever said you were supposed to be perfect?
