Looking after your new babe can be very difficult physically on our bodies, not just from the act of bringing our babies into the world, but from caring for them throughout our day. Our bodies must adapt to this new routine and it often takes its toll on our necks, shoulders, hips and core.
If you've been wondering about this resource, this is the blog for you.
How did that happen?!
In this post, I'm keen to share what I've been up to.

Getting out of the door in the morning with small children can be difficult.
I see you.
Even if the morning is a well oiled machine, I’m still rushing.
These words have made their way across the internet. This is a topic close to my heart. But this is a topic close to the hearts of all parents. How do we keep our kids safe?
In this blog, I share my thoughts on this.

I read something by @themindfuldietitian last week that stopped me. Promptly saved it to digest later (pun intended!). And I've been thinking about it ever since.

I was catching up with friends after work yesterday. I walked out the door in the morning and thought: "eh, I'll deal with this when I get back. At least they aren't coming here." And at the last minute, location changed. To my place!
Hi all! I was super thrilled to be invited on to speak with Shelley McClure of Pollination Mamas (definitely check out her other work).
We had a really great chat about the state of postpartum culture, my story and my work within the community (and world) to revolutionise postpartum mental health and care.
I really loved this interview - for so many reasons. And I'd love for you to give this a listen!
Ever feel like you're one tiny, shitty thing away from breaking? I talk a lot about feeling "on edge" in the online program and about how to learn to feel your emotions to alleviate some of that build-up. But this is a practice after so many years of being conditioned to believe that emotions are scary and uncomfortable. Well, they can still be those things. But we cannot forget our own skills and strength.
This is one woman's story.

I’ve offered to share my experience with night weaning our second child. I hope it can offer some peer support during a very bittersweet time.
On one hand, we don’t want our babies to grow up. On the other, it’s been years now and sleeping in weird positions with one boob out and we’re feeling okay with that changing - even slightly.
