Birth, to give life. Isn’t that the truth? Mothers give so much of themselves to their children. Often at the expense of their own health. The maternal support for women postpartum is oftentimes a quick 6 week check up. Which includes a brief survey asking how you’re feeling mentally, a run down of whether or not you’re still bleeding and then a swift nod and a “sounds great, be sure to take things at your own pace” then you’re out the door…280 days spent creating a life, while adjusting your own. Hours of labor, fear, blood, sweat and tears all funneled down to “take things at your own pace”. As you navigate life with a newborn it’s often overlooked that you are a newly born mother as well. Someone who needs guidance and support.
