New Motherhood Is Not for the Faint of Heart
11 min

June Diane Raphael, actress, writer, and co-founder of The Jane Club, opens up about her own struggle with new motherhood. “It was very painful for me because I didn't feel like I had a lot of support.” She tells the story of her first week on the set of Grace and Frankie when, at just 10 weeks postpartum, she wound up with a *very painful* clogged duct in her breast. “I would walk away and back to my trailer and cry because it was so painful.” Plus: how she balances taking care of two small children and an aging parent, all while running The Jane Club, her digital community empowering working moms.

Before each session, I read through my journals and think about everything I want to say, as well as how I will answer any potential questions that my therapist might ask... 9. Can someone be resistant to therapy because one sees through the strategies of the therapist so that they don't work? 10. Hey Kati.  I’m 19 years old and in the last few years, I’ve found myself getting strongly attached to female figures who are older than me. It’s almost like I’ve got a little hole inside of me and... *Connecting with Kati* * *Are u ok? *Kati's book is in stores now * *Kati's Amazon Suggestions* * *PATREON** *is a great way* *to help me support the creation of mental health videos. * *Journaling Club* - On Tuesday & Friday Kati posts a journal prompt to help keep you motivated and working on yourself!  *Opinions That Don't Matter!* (Kati's second podcast) * *video version*  * *audio version* *ONLINE THERAPY** *I do not currently offer online therapy.  BetterHelp can connect you with a licensed, online counselor.
