New blog post! Thank you to my Student OT who is working with me, for writing about such an important topic.

However, when looking back at this time, a large portion of individuals may not ne...

Finding mindful moments throughout our days can help increase our capacity to cope with the bigger things in life. This check can bring awareness to our body and environment helping to create calm during chaos. For an even stronger effect, try this outside when our senses are more easily activated by nature.

Did you know Sunday nights hold so much dread for many people?

As we start a new week, please remember to be kind to your self. As cheesy as it sounds, be your best friend!! There is so much truth in this!

While sleep does wonders, it can seem like a constant chase to get solid restful sleep. So, lets put some focus on rejuvenating our souls through self-compassion.

It is possible to find time, even 5 minutes a day, to do something for you - and just you!

Whether it is a reminder that you are doing the best you can throughout the day or a walk around the block while listening to your favourite podcast. All of these acts of self-kindness help to build our resiliency to better cope with the heavier stuff life throws us. Ya know, like parenting through a pandemic 😆

Stay strong, stay vulnerable, stay brave. You've got this! ♥️

More than ever, postpartum mood changes need to be talked about. Our group was created to build a sense of community in a time when it is difficult to do so, especially for new moms.

If you or someone you know needs to talk, please reach out, not just today but tomorrow and any other time in the future.

If you would like to join us, head over to www.willowfamilyOT.com/events to register. You will get access to our recurring zoom link and a link to our private Facebook group where you can access resources and continue the conversation!

Join us for our weekly online Mother's Gathering. This is a FREE drop in session geared towards creating connection, sharing stories, and hearing from parenting and healthcare practitioners. Each week will have a topic of interest presented from an evidence based approach by our group facilitators.

Registration is required the first time you join us, after that you can drop into the Zoom calls when it suits your schedule. Two sessions a week will be offered based on the same topic to give flexibility for your schedule. Topics will change each week. Check out our website or social media to see updated schedule of topics.

Mothers at any stage of their motherhood journey are welcome to join. Some sessions will be geared toward motherhood with older children. Babies are welcome to join in on the call and there is no pressure to have your video on or speak if uncomfortable to do so. We encourage connection in any way that works for you!

Many of us are missing the personal connections developed though community groups for parents and babies or even just making eye contact and sharing a smile with a mom across the play ground. An all knowing smile reassuring you that your exhaustion and worries are normal. Finding that common ground with others without having to say a word.

Parenting during a pandemic is hard. Let's create our new village to help support one another as we move through uncertain times. There is no need to go through this alone!

Our first Gathering is Friday January 22!

01/10/2021

We need to be mindful of the terms we use to describe a birthing process. Natural birth is a common, although misguided, descriptor for a vaginal birth or a vaginal birth without intervention.

Using this terminology creates a perception that there is something unnatural about a birth with intervention; when pain medications are used, when induction is needed, or when a Caesarean birth occurs. The birth of a child is a natural experience. The method in which they are helped into this world is a process by which this natural experience occurs.

The terminology we choose to use can perpetuate the stigma and shame associated with a birthing process that requires intervention. Mothers should not have to feel shame or guilt because our words diminish their birth experience. We need to stop! We need to end birth stigma!

I love New Years Eve because it is a sense of renewal. The feeling of starting fresh, creating new goals, and identifying what kind of transformation we are looking to have over the next 12 months.

I am excited for what Willow Family Wellness OT Services will be transforming into in 2021!

We are going to be expanding our programs and support options for mothers, their partners and support people, as well as children.

Sliding scale is available. Finances should not exclude you from receiving the support you need!

Don't miss out on any of our announcements or registration options.

12/06/2020

Every year we get a new ornament for the Christmas tree. This little guy was our addition last year, to always remember the two racoons who broke into our kitchen at 3am! Not that we need an ornament to remember that one haha

This year I'm not too sure what ornament we should get. There are so many commemorating this past year. I'm torn because in all the lightheartedness of these ornaments there is also a reminder of so much heartache and loss.

This year we have also seen a rise in rates of post partum mood disorders and, really, depression and anxiety in general. People are missing loved ones and families are separated more than ever in a time when emotionally and physically we need connection.

Making time for these little traditions, like picking out a new ornament, may seem trivial right now but it is also a sense of normalcy many of us are craving. I know my family is. We need to allow ourselves to find joy where we can, while honouring all the lives lost and forever altered in 2020. We don't need ornaments to remember 2020, but we do need traditions to find normalcy, security, hope, and peace.

What traditions are you going to make a priority this holiday season?
