At 8 months postpartum with her second daughter, our Founder, Kathryn, found herself feeling overwhelmed, angry, and not able to function. She shrugged it off, blaming busyness, sleep deprivation, and adjusting to a new “normal” with two kids. It wasn’t until her GP suggested she may have postpartum anxiety that she realized this might not be normal. So she sought the help of a therapist. At her first visit, the therapist affirmed Kathryn had PPA. As she worked with her therapist to treat her anxiety, the anger faded and life felt doable again. During this process, Kathryn realized the value of her GP and therapist — they were life changing. The Triangle has a wealth of these resources for growing families…but accessing them individually takes time and energy that families with young children simply don’t have. So they often turn to the internet for answers and….well, you know where that leads. How many windows are open on your phone right now? All families feel growing pains and all families deserve access to well-researched, practical, and personalized information. Kathryn knew these local resources should be together in one place for families and that she could make it happen. After all, she’s an educator by trade, mama of two, and connector of people by nature. The rest is history. Kathryn gathered a team of local experts, channeled her background and passion for education, and the Nurtured Nest was born.
