I fully believe in the mantra, “it takes a village.” Becoming a mom for me was something I’d always wanted to do—but it was like learning a new language for me.

They also help me psychologically, too. It’s easy to feel alone especially as a new mom. Whether it’s weight gain, the constant worry of not being the “perfect” mom, or even not feeling like yourself; a community of moms helps guide you along the way.

I can’t wait to share it with you, too!
