Who is this person in the mirror wearing mommy’s sweats?

Did becoming a mother turn your world upside down and backwards? Jodi, a mother in University City shares, “After I had Sammy I woke up one morning or afternoon, really who knows what time it was.   Everything blended into one endless round of feedings and laundry, and catching sleep whenever I could.   So I get up to wash my face and I look into the mirror.  I don’t recognize the image in front of me.  Who is this desperately tired person?    She has deep circles under her eyes.  She has a flabby belly.  She is wearing mommy sweats.   I don’t know her.”

Research shows that despite all preperation parents today are actually under prepared for the transition into parenthood.  Many mothers find that their friendships, their marriages and their essential sense of self has changed.  We are not prepared for this isolating upheaval and in modern life without our “tribe” right next door.
