During pregnancy, everyone showered me with love but after child birth forgot that I needed them, no empathy for me. It broke me.

Take care of yourself, eat well.

Do things you like.

Take her out, she needs fresh air.

Watch things you like, Meet your friends, do what you like.

 

This was my home environment for me when I was pregnant. I would feel special, I would feel understood, wanted and that support made me feel so good and that I was lucky.

 

And finally my child came to this world, I was so happy and felt like my world was complete.

 

But the treatment of people around me towards me that ensued broke me. 

 

There was a 180 degree change in attitude towards me.

All the attention was gone, whether I have eaten or not was not the concern of people around.

If the baby would cry, there would be an attack on me.

I was constantly made to feel like I wasn't doing enough.

I was also made to feel like the baby didn't belong to me. That I am like the nurse while the baby belongs to everyone else.

 

I was shocked at how less I meant, how all the love I experienced was not for me but because in their mind, I was carrying their baby.

 

I was so depressed, I felt so down and so ignored... I joined IWill therapy on my doctors advise, it was in therapy that I felt understood.

 

Therapist helped me to assert, to say what I was feeling with respect and without fear. She encouraged me a lot to take care of myself, to pamper myself

 

She also helped me focus on people who loved me, my child who was in awe with me since the day of his birth.

 

Therapist asked my partner to join therapy too and asked him, how would he feel if he was made to feel special for some time and then all attention taken away, how would he feel?

 

How would he feel if he is attacked for baby's care all the time. 

How would he feel if he is made to feel that it's not his baby.

 

My husband could see how ignored I had become.

He could see how lonely and painful it was to be pampered for 9 months and attacked Eversince.

 

I love my baby but I love myself too.

I have to be respected, valued, and I matter.

 

Women go in depression due to gross neglect they face once they become mothers. I had become depressed with all the ignorance too, not anymore!

 

I won't be insignificant. I won't take abuse.

I will be a mother who takes care but I expect care and respect for me as a woman and individual too
