"Postpartum life is exhausting, emotional, exhilarating, transformative and very messy.

If everyone had a better idea of what happens to a person and their body after giving birth, we’d have a healthier and more empathetic society."

"Gifting something for a new mother goes a long way toward countering the invisibility many feel when pregnancy is overshe is valued and her health and well being are important to the people around her."
"I was moved to tears by the sheer strength of the female body and the triumphant emotional transformation of the mother."
"W​e should all be supported during this hugely transformative time—from the moment we decide we want to have a baby, through pregnancy, birth, postpartum, through loss and beyond."
