It's five days after baby was born.
Your visitors have gone home. You’re settling into the reality of postpartum life. Your belly is still soft. Your bottom is swollen, sore. You feel STRONG AF because yooo. You just gave birth. 💪🏽💪🏽Yet the slightest breeze on the other side of the window sends you crawling instinctively back to bed under your favorite comforter.
Your tears flow as freely as your milk. Baby rarely leaves your chest. You’re not in a hurry to get back to life. This IS life, and you’re wise enough to know that these first few weeks FLY by in an instant.
To make life easier and more blissful, you planned ahead. Your freezer is full of delicious, homemade meals that you only need to reheat when that deep postpartum hunger kicks in. The thermos by your bed is always full of hot, steamy herbal tea for those long breastfeeding stretches.
You’re rooted, grounded. Connected. 🙏🏽❣️🔥
