The mental load of motherhood is heavy. Moms experience a lot of change as they navigate the different stages of family life. It is easy to put yourself on the backburner as you tend to the needs of those around you. At Rooted Thistle Counselling, we recognize the weight that moms carry and offer customized support with mom therapists who truly understand.
Understanding the Mental Load of Motherhood
Moms carry an immense mental load—balancing schedules, managing the household, tending to the family's needs, and often juggling professional responsibilities. Many of these tasks are invisible labour that go unnoticed to everyone except you, the mom carrying it out. This load can take a toll on mental health, leaving moms feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and putting themselves last. At Rooted Thistle Counselling, we acknowledge the challenges you face. Our experienced mom therapists are here to provide a safe and understanding space for you to unpack the complexities of your role as a mother while prioritizing your mental health.
