Here’s the thing many of us fail to realize until we step into motherhood ourselves - motherhood looks different to everyone. It’s a journey not a destination. How yesterday went, has zero cause and effect as to how today might be going.
A new mom telling everyone how much she loves her baby holds zero indication as to how she’s actually doing mentally. A mom can love their new baby and be deeply struggling with the transition into motherhood or the postpartum experience.
Today's conversation is a short one with just a couple tips for those of us struggling as to how to best support mom friends. And I get it, I was once there too. Until I became a mom myself, I had zero clue what my mom friends needed from me during their times of transition.
So to the mama out there feeling alone with a loss of community - this episode is for you <3
And to the best friend not sure how to support her friend’s transition into motherhood - this is episode is also for you <3

“Help your mom friend feel like the world isn’t moving on without her. Continue inviting her to movie nights, Zoom meetups, yoga classes, park dates, whatever you and your other friends are making plans for - invite your mom friend. Even though you know she already can’t go, that doesn’t matter. It’s the receiving of the invitation that brings life to her. And who knows, one day she might be available. So don’t also assume she’s never available.”
