My experience with early motherhood was surprising to me - some of the difficulty was unexpected, some was better, some was worse. The experiences of early motherhood can make women feel alone, ashamed, afraid, or like bad moms. The fears, the adjustment and the sleep deprivation-induced insecurity are normal, they will pass. These posts try to say it. I hope that by sharing my uncertainty and fears I am reassuring other new mama that it's OK. You're an awesome mom.
