woman child outdoorMotherhood is a tricky thing. While it brings a unique set of joys that only a mother can know, it also brings its own unique set of challenges. We often feel that the weight of our families, our household, and even our children are resting on our shoulders. It seems that we are on a perpetual quest to be the best — to be perfect.

This drive to be perfect often effects us emotionally. This can manifest itself as anxiety, relationship issues, stress, and other personal struggles. The only problem is that in our quest to be perfect, we don’t want others to know that we are struggling. We don’t want people to know that we aren’t perfect.

Amwell4Many mothers feel that by seeking treatment it means that they are not the “perfect mother” or that they have somehow failed in their role. Some women fear that they will be judged. Others just feel as if they don’t have the time or the energy to go talk to a physiatrist or a therapist. Still others might not have the appropriate insurance to cover psychiatric visits. Whatever the reason for not seeking help, that needs to stop. Women need to put themselves first.

This is why Amwell is such a valuable resource.

Mother on LaptopThe best part is that no one needs to know about your visit with Amwell. Your visit is conducted with just you, your computer (or mobile device), and the psychiatrist. You don’t have to tell anyone where you are going, sit in a waiting room where you may be seen, and no need to get a babysitter or take time off from work.

Additionally, Amwell visits are accepted by many major health insurances. Even if you don’t have medical insurance, you can still use Amwell without having to pay huge out-of-pocket costs. Depending on the therapist or psychologist you see, the visit will cost between $79 and $95, which is substantially lower than an in-office visit.
