The birth of your amazing new baby can bring up so many emotions for moms and for family members. All of the anticipation, the celebrations around your new baby, the planning, the preparing - it can be exciting and can bring on such intense feelings of joy. On the other hand, this major life change can also bring up feelings of sadness for some. Not only is having a new family member extremely exciting, but it is representative of a major life transition. During this life transition you leave for the hospital to go through the sometimes tumultuous birthing process and return home with a beautiful new baby who is not only adorable, but who also requires a great deal of nurturing, attention and love. With this major life transition, the new role of parenthood and the needs of your newborn, some mothers may experience intense and sometimes uncontrollable feelings of sadness.
