Mummy Exhaustion

Updated: Jan 9


Feel re energised after children

An interesting concept was brought to my attention recently while in consultation with a mother who was suffering exhaustion and mood swings, which could have been seen to some as post-natal depression on a low scale. It made me release how common mummy exhaustion is and how many mothers suffer from it. mummy exhaustion is like an overwhelming and all-consuming wave of emotions that comes on suddenly such during the day and can present as crying, anger and frustration. Along with this is physical fatigue and tiredness.

With expectation placed on parenting and the need or want for mums to keep working or have a career has a part to play in this exhaustion, on top of this hormones are still rebalancing, if your breastfeeding and diet are lacking in vitamin and mineral this can play a big part as well. Lack of sleep because toddler still isn’t sleeping through the night is one, I hear quite often.

This doesn’t just happen to single parent but those who are partnered as well. It also does not just happen to mums who are working it happens to stay at home mums also. Being a mum myself I can understand the feeling as I too had mummy exhaustion when my little one was around 2 years of age, which is when it is most common. At the time several things helped me to recover, including meditation, reiki and homeopathy. But not just supporting me but my child required support from homeopathy and energy healing as well. Often this is the case that both mother and child need support to resolve the underlying cause. Often what is going on for mum is passed on energetically to the child as we are still closely connected to them.

Here are some ways to feel a little like yourself again.

Meditation: Even just 5 mins a day to help centre you and bring you back to the present moment can be a massive benefit to your emotional wellbeing.

Reiki or energy healing: Takes body the out of fight or flight mode and into relaxation. Helps calm the emotions and unlocks any negative emotions. Rebalances the energy of the body and the chakras. Distant Reiki can be conducted for babies and small children while the child is sleeping.

Craniosacral therapy: If your exhaustion is combined with physical pain within the body than craniosacral therapy along side reiki will help to release all of that tension within the body. It a gentle therapy that help to release the tension within the whole body.

Homeopathy: Is a whole-body therapy healing the body, mind and soul. It gives the body what it needs to rebalance. For example: If your hormones are out of sorts it will bring them back into balance, it does this by triggers the body’s healing mechanism.

These are just a few ways I am able to assist you, there are of course may supportive options that can be used in conjunction with what I have mentioned above or on its own that can help mums.
