I SEE YOU THERE, NEW MUMMY

Advertisements

Post Natal Depression/ Maternal Mental Health/ Poem about Motherhood

I see you there new Mummy, I recognise the smile

It’s stuck there like a mask and it has been there for a while

But underneath the grin I know you’re tired and you’re weary

You show the world your game face, never let them see you teary.

 

Your baby is your everything, no doubt about your care

But something isn’t right and you’re just terrified to share.

But if you did you’d find a world so full of Mums like you

Who sometimes cry and shake and often don’t know what to do.

 

It’s hard when nights are endless and screams ring round the walls

And yet you’re up at dawn to dry the tears and break the falls

Your thoughts are filled with fear and doubt and endless, aching worry

Your wishing all the days away and yet you fear the hurry.

 

Please know you’re not alone in this, in fact you’re with the crowd

It’s something that we all should learn to speak about, and loud!

There is no shame, no judgement, in taking time for you

In fact it is the best thing that a brand new Mum can do.

 

So hold your loved ones tight dear, help is on the way

It really is that easy, you only had to say

There’s other Mums around you, who’ll never let you fall

They’re there to tell their stories and guide you through it all…
