Are you a new or expectant mother?
The postpartum period is like a storm, full of emotional highs and lows, physical changes, and social shifts.
It can often leave you feeling lost and overwhelmed. The problem is, most people don't talk about this. They focus on the physical recovery after childbirth but ignore the emotional and psychological complexities.
This lack of understanding and support can lead to feelings of isolation, anxiety, and even postpartum depression.

Part 01 - Personal Changes
Becoming a mother is much more than just giving birth. It marks a significant shift in your identity, an upending of your routines, and in some ways, changes almost everything about your personal life. Navigating potential conflicts between an old identity and a new identity as a mother can be challenging. Equally, disruptions to established routines like sleeping, eating, and personal time can be difficult to manage and can have a negative impact on your mental health. How you meet new expectations and plan for these changes is an ongoing and personal journey.
In this section, we will explore the personal changes that many mothers experience during the postpartum period. Some of the topics will be related to the identity changes you will experience, as well as the formation of your identity as a mother. We also discuss the changes to your body and routine that you might experience, how to balance and plan for these new changes, and strategies to realistically manage the expectations you place on yourself.
Part 02 - Emotional Changes
Motherhood is often cited by women as being one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of their lives. It’s no surprise, then, that this transformational experience is accompanied by a range of intense emotions. Many of these emotions are positive—such as joy, surprise, and love. However, many of the emotions you may experience can be (surprisingly) negative; anxiety, depression, or guilt, for example.
In this section, we will explore the many emotional changes women tend to undergo throughout the postpartum period. Many of the topics will cover negative emotions like postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety (e.g., mom guilt). We also discuss ways to recognize rapid changes in your mood that might occur, as well as signs you may be in emotional distress. We conclude with a section on spotting the joy in your postpartum period. The postpartum period can be a wild and busy time, so it’s important that we recognize the positive when it happens.
Part 03 - Social Changes
The postpartum period can be an exciting and vibrant time, marked by the introduction of a brand- new family member. However, the inclusion of this new family member can also make this time challenging and lonely. Existing relationships can change and may become strained, and it can be hard to form new relationships. Figuring out who to ask for help and what to ask for can also be difficult.
In this section, we will explore the social changes that may happen during your postpartum period and discuss the feelings of loneliness and isolation that often occur during this time. We will also discuss how to establish a network of trust, how to make the most of your support system, what kinds of changes may happen to your relationships, and how to set boundaries with those around you.
The Calm Planner also includes regular distress monitoring, which involves regularly checking in with oneself to assess one's level of distress or anxiety over a certain period of time.
By becoming more aware of their stress levels, individuals can take proactive steps to manage stress and anxiety, and develop a greater sense of control over their mental health and well-being.
