LIVE-WIRE – Sometimes Even SUPER-MOM Needs Help!

It’s a sad fact that there are only a certain amount of hours in any given day – and as super fantastic and amazing parents there is only so much that even we can do in it! New Moms are particularly vulnerable – navigating unfamiliar territory, and trying to juggle the demands of baby, work, household, and the unexpected challenges which life tends to mete out all on a probable poor night’s sleep.

Our lives today in general are faster and all together more frenetic than in previous decades. The American Institute of Stress (AIS) reports that a whopping 83% of the collective workforce suffer from work-related stress. Women are particularly susceptible to suffer from constant anxiety and tension due to the added responsibility of managing households and children.

The explosion of technology into our daily lives has also been a catalyst for huge changes in everyday routines. The world has shrunk! So we can easily be in touch with our family support base (grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles) via WhatsApp and other digital means, and this communication certainly has its special place. But it doesn’t fill the void of a personal presence that can offer real and concrete help and skills.
