In May 2017, I wanted to end my life.
Hi! I'm Mia. I'm a wife and mom of two super cute kids under the age of 3. I really struggled when I became a mom. I had a traumatic first birth, little family support, little money, and I did not live near my friends because after I got married, my husband and I moved for his job.
I went through postpartum depression and anxiety after the birth of both of my babies.
In May 2017, I was contemplating suicide, and by some miracle, I discovered a girl on YouTube talking about what it feels like to struggle with depression, and how she comes in and out of it.
Until that point, I had never heard anyone describe what I was feeling so deeply. I found the strength within myself to seek professional help, make a lot of changes, and to share my journey with others on my YouTube channel and on my website, with the hope that I could help another mom feel less alone in the struggle.
Over the past 2 years, I have had another baby, and have been growing, healing and becoming stronger as a woman and as a mother.
It is my mission to help mothers thrive and find joy and fulfillment in their lives.
As always, if you need anything, reach out to me via email or Instagram (@miahemstad).
Much love to you!
