The latest episode of Survive & Thrive: PANDA’s podcast for expecting and new parents has arrived!
Of course, there can be lots of excitement in anticipation of lovely cuddles with your newest family member, but there are some complicated feelings that might come up too.
Everyone’s family looks different, but there’s often an expectation that this will be a time of total joy and togetherness. In reality, you might miss the way your relationships were before your bub arrived. You might find yourself arguing about values and parenting decisions with loved ones, or you might be bored of only talking about parenting and baby things!
It can be a stressful time. And it can feel hard to talk about issues in your relationships, when there is so much else going on.
In this episode our guest Bree talks about her experiences with family therapy and the importance of putting yourself first.
