Everyone asking, "What do you need for the baby?" Or "How can I help?" Here’s my 6 simple ways to guide your village towards successfully supporting you after birth.

The thought of giving birth is enough to overwhelm you. I know that because not only have I felt this way before, but I've supported clients who've expressed the same sentiment.

Sometimes the thought of asking for support in specific areas can feel a bit forward - even to the point where you question if you should say anything at all (or just carry the load) After all, you're a master at "getting things done".

But let me tell you my sweet friend, setting yourself up for postpartum success is the new flex.

You are growing and giving birth to a whole human. That's definitely worthy of the rest and recovery you need to successfully transition into motherhood.

Now here’s the good news. In this episode, I’m sharing my simple 6 ways to be supported by friends and family in the first week (wait for it) ...WITHOUT having everyone stopping by for a visit.

(Unless that's your thang. If so, rock on with your bad self)

Here’s the icing on the cake. These tips offer value to you, while allowing those who care about you the most, to offer a gesture of support during one of the most pivotal times of your life.

So, if you’re ready to position yourself for a postpartum victory, then grab something to take notes and pay close attention to this episode. 

Happy Birthing!
