In this episode I talk about the consequences of untreated/ unmanaged maternal anxiety and how Mom's anxiety can affect the entire family. I discuss my personal reasons for wanting to manage my anxiety: wanting to raise a confident child, consequences to my marriage and my desire to fully enjoy motherhood. I also talk about the research on how maternal anxiety affects childhood development.
As moms, we tend to focus on the wellbeing of our families before focusing on ourselves. My goal for this episode is for moms who are struggling with anxiety to see that in taking the time to care for themselves and get treatment or support for their anxiety, they are also caring for their families.
