Are you an expecting Mum and feeling anxious? Or a new Mum feeling overwhelmed? 

Whether you're a first time Mumma, or been there before, your emotional and mental health matters. With one in eight new Mums experiencing post natal depression, being equipped with tools that you can practise and awareness of when to reach out for further support is necessary.

If want to learn how to support your mental and emotional health leading into and throughout motherhood, this podcast episode with Stephanie Loielo is for you. 

Stephanie is a psychologist with over 10 years experience in working with children and their families. She started The Village Around Me after realising the need for accessible psychological support for mothers in the perinatal period, and so offers Telehealth, or in home appointments for mums across Adelaide and South Australia.

One of The Village Around Me’s core values is that no mother should feel alone in her journey, and so she believes that the relationships a mum has with her village are a key part of her emotional health.  

In today's episode Stephanie explores:

  • Strategies to help you as a Mumma-to-be to work through anxiety throughout pregnancy.
  • When to seek help if you're feeling anxious throughout pregnancy.
  • Recommendations for loved ones during your pregnancy on sharing advice, stories and personal experiences.
  • How you as an expecting Mum can best prepare yourself mentally for the life changes that motherhood will bring.
  • What signs should you (and your loved ones) be aware of so they know when to reach out for help for potential post natal depression.
  • The contributing factors for post natal depression.
  • Coping mechanisms, practises and communication methods to help you navigate your new life as Mum.
