What I Wish I Had Known

I wish I had known how important it is to physically heal in the immediate postpartum and not push yourself to be out on walks or doing anything in the first couple of weeks after your baby is born. I wish I’d been able to access more resources for supporting my husband and I as we struggled with sleeplessness. And, I wish I had known how much better motherhood would make me and how my kids would change my life in all the best possible ways.
