Problem Solving Training
Pages 13

Problems are inevitable in life, and they are especially common in times of transition, such as the transition to parenthood. Perinatal women often describe a host of problems that they are facing, such how to decide what arrangements to make for their baby when they go back to work, how to deal with a mother-in-law who parents very differently than they do, and what to do with a baby that is not latching properly. They are often overwhelmed and do not know where to begin. They are desperate to fi nd the “right” solutions to their problems because they are fearful that they are not a “good mother.”
