Mother-Centered Needs

Here are some Mother-Centered Needs you might have (and, it is okay to have them):

– the need for someone to talk to – a good role model and listener
– the need to focus inward
– the need to feel dependent
– the need to feel mothered
– the need to talk about the labor and delivery
– the need to talk about the adoption experience
– the need to feel protected
– the need to feel nurtured
– the need to respect your own vulnerability
– the need for private time
– the need for lots of praise and encouragement
– the need to pay attention to your psychological and emotional states, even if others aren’t doing so
