That everyone who has a child deserves physical and emotional support in a space where no question is dumb, no emotion makes them a “bad parent” and they can truly be themselves in any form in a given day.
Making the choice to care for yourself by asking for and getting the support you need after birth positively impacts all aspects of your postpartum life.
Birthing people who are adequately supported and held during the early postpartum period are better able to adjust to life and family after baby. They are able to more smoothly adapt to this major life transition and voice their needs which allows them to be validated and met, reclaiming their fourth trimester. This in turn allows for a more solid relationship with their partner and space to bond with their baby.
This has a domino effect the rest of your life going forward, impacting the decisions and choices you make, leading to contentment and fulfillment, and giving you room to thrive in other areas of your life.
