Best advice: Asking for support doesn’t make you needy. You’re a new mom with needs.
We believe: That postpartum doesn’t end at six weeks, six months, or even a year. Postpartum is forever.
I wish someone had told me:
That every relationship changes when you have a baby.
That it can take months or even years to begin to recognize yourself.
That your baby doesn’t need a perfect mom with all of the answers.
That loving your baby isn’t always instantaneous.
To hold onto the moments, no matter how small or fleeting.
That there’s no shame in asking for support.
To capture more memories with myself in them.
That I might not feel ready for sex well beyond six weeks.
That it’s okay not to love the newborn stage.
