One day our children will be looking through our old home videos and photos that we took and will be wondering where we were in all of them. Often we don’t feel like taking photos when we’re makeup-free, hair in a bun, sweats on, with a snot stained shirt, and we still can’t fit into our pre-baby jeans. But will all of that matter in 20 years when we’re on the other side and out of the “thick of it”? When we would give anything to go back to these days for just a few minutes and cuddle the little babies that have been given to us. Will it matter that we didn’t look like we stepped out a magazine or that we weren’t our ideal weight? What matters is that we soaked up every precious moment with our littles, took mental pictures, and a few real ones.

Reese has her follow up echo this week to check the status of her congenital heart defects. I find myself holding her just a little tighter today thinking about it. Please help us continue to lift her up in prayer. God has been so faithful in her story and we continue to trust in His plan and ability to heal our sweet girl.

In the throes of postpartum depression, any little thing that I did wrong would set me over the edge. Full blown meltdowns were my norm.
I’d start down that comparison trap to all the moms who had it together but I’m over here a complete mess.
I’d tell myself I wasn’t worthy.
I wasn’t enough. I’d never be enough.
Anxiety would build. I’d end up in a panic.
Then came the yelling, the full blown rage.
Next was the crying. Sobbing.
“My kids don’t deserve this. I am a burden to everyone. They’d be better off without me.”
All because I ran out of diapers on a quick outing.
All because I got the kids to bed 30 minutes later than I should have and everyone was yelling.
All because I raised my voice asking for space after a particularly hard day of being touched out.
I took this picture after Mila finally calmed down and fell asleep earlier. Today has been one of the hardest days of motherhood that I’ve had in a very long time. One of those ‘one thing after another’ going wrong kind of days. A hospital trip for a high fever, a soaking wet ring sling I needed to use, a single stroller and not a double for my boys, a car seat not cooperating, a forgotten baby bottle. 3 very sick kids all competing for space on my lap. All a recipe for completing losing my shit.
But there is the reminder I needed. “Mighty Mother” right next to her sweet face and above her little arm hugging me.
These bad days, these bad moments - they do not define us as mothers. They do not dictate our worthiness to be mothers. Healing will help teach you that.
We ARE mighty ✨💪🏻
“Get outside.” That was some of the best advice I got when dealing with PPD/A. Numerous studies have shown the benefits of nature on physical and mental well being. And getting outside more is a free change we can all do to live better lives. It wasn’t a easy task for me when I lived in the suburban sprawl of hot, muggy Orlando but early morning or evening walks/runs made a huge difference to my recovery. And it has gotten a lot easier here in beautiful Oregon. But it’s is not a cure all. I’d hope no one would say to just take a walk instead of taking your antidepressants but it is doable. Try it today! #outdoors#mentalhealth#nature#oregon#oregonisbeautiful#smallchanges#ppd#postpartum https://www.businessinsider.com/why-spending-more-time-outside-is-healthy-2017-7

Here’s one of my most favorite metcons by @321ollie (By favorite, I mean it hurts so good) to give a try: 5 burpees and 7 box jumps EMOM for 15 minutes... the first round took me about 32 seconds, but by the last, it took 38 😆. You can choose 6/8, 8/10, 10/12, etc. I used to bite off 10/12, and would just make it 3 rounds before dropping to 8/10. But postpartum and starting CrossFit back... 5/7 was about perfect. 🤣 The luck from Lynnlee helped me survive. If you try it, let me know! #relentlessathletics#postpartum#boxjumps#burpees#crossfit#metcon#cardio#crossfitmom#crossfitbaby#gymfamily

Went to my postpartum Doula visit today and immediately stepped into action… As soon as I arrived, big sister needed help drying and brushing her hair, Mama had just finished pumping, and food was on the stove and needed to be tended to. It was that chaotic moment that all moms know all too well… After that was taken care of it was peaceful.
When you go to visit mom and baby it’s always a good idea to step into action mode and help in anyway they might need versus trying to hold the baby right away. I know Mom will be much more relaxed 😌💛
Look at this little angel 💕

#transformationtuesday -- because sometimes I need this reminder, and I know someone else needs it too!
Yesterday was my first postpartum run...the third one in a very short span. This time last year, I ran a sub-20 5k and felt like I was just scratching the surface on my running potential! This year, I'm starting over completely.
And honestly, I'm 100% okay with that. My "season of life" right now is as a mom of 3 very little kids. Running brings me joy but they bring me SO much more joy. Having 3 so close together is kind of bittersweet -- every single day, I look at my 3 year old and am reminded how fast this time with my almost-2-month-old will pass. Plus, having little kids is stressful! I LOVE running but I also know that it introduces stress to my life...both physical stress, and the mental stress of preparing for workouts and races. I don't have the bandwidth for that right now! I'd much rather run for pure enjoyment.
I'm planning 1 race for 2020 -- a half marathon at West Point. It happens to be the very first half marathon I ran in 2011! My 22-year-old D1 athlete self ran a 1:41. *Maybe* my 31-year-old mom of 3 self can beat that...but that race will be special no matter what the clock says.
There will always be another race, during another season when I can really dedicate myself to training. I truly believe I only scratched the surface last year. It made me excited to see what I can do running-wise! I truly love competing and being at my best. But there’s no reason to rush. That potential will be waiting when I'm ready.
🥂🍼🥂 Raise your pump parts in cheers to @chels.keeps.it.real who just celebrated 12 months #exclusivelypumping !! She is an inspiration and a wealth of support to all #postpartum mamas out there. Here’s to you, Chelsea!!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #MamaMotivation ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you want to #KeepYourDressOn when you pump, check out the link in the bio!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"The last time this pump touched my breasts... and we wanted to have a celebratory adios! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve done some pretty hard things in my life but exclusively pumping is up there in the ranks.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That tinge of pain I felt when I realized Sage would never nurse is one that returns to me, but then is met with the gratitude and strength of this year of pumping.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pumping had been time, money, energy, body contact, multi-tasking, packing extra bags, scheduling, leaving events... it has been trying to snuggle in the midst of cords and flashing the drive thru guy at Dunkin Donuts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It has been one hell of a ride. My “goal” was to make it through Sage’s surgeries and then recently I just knew I was done. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mentally. Physically. Emotionally. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pump, accessories, bras... you’ve been good to me. You’ve formed a team to make my journey possible. You’ve helped me feed my babe. But now, it’s time we step away and see other people ✌🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There’s no right amount of time to breastfeed- nursing or pumping- but “right” is doing what makes sense for you, your family and your sanity 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now what the hell will I post about?! 🤣❤️"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

On 7/10/19 at 8:43am our little baby Bobbie arrived weighing 7lbs 6 💙 after 2 sweeps and 10 days late ...and no words can describe the love i have for our little boy x . He has made me the happiest I’ve ever been 😍
Thank you to all the midwives in the Midwifery Led Unit (MLU- our Lady of Lourdes hospital) for all their support through labour and throughout the whole pregnancy ,you made me laugh when i was frustrated, you have held my hand when i was scared, you have comforted me when i have cried and most of all you all have always listened to me ♥️ 🙏 midwives thank you x
Over one month later i am still trying to adjust to life as being a new Mum ,
Its hard , its all so new and half time i think I’m winging it ! The night feeds get lonely , the anxiety around - is he warm enough, am i doing enough for him , is he ok , still trying to get used to not having a pregnant belly now and being able to pick up things from floor and sleep on my stomach , all these random weird changes of the unknown for me as its all so new but i am loving every bit of it 😍... its a very different life and now i feel complete 💙
I have set some plans to return to the gym / training and goals and i will share them soon but for now i am in no rush , just enjoying this all 😍

🤰🏽postpartum recovery🤰🏽 I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again... I don’t share these photos because I care about what I look like or the number on the scales... I share these updates to pay tribute to and acknowledge the power of nourishment (mind, body and soul) and it’s ability to heal the body effectively and quickly ❤️ We live and breathe what we share with @thechieflife way of being, our 7 pillars of health (nutrition, movement, sunshine/nature time, water, sleep/rest, stress management/detox protocols and breathing/meditation) and just trying to be a good person 🙏🏽 I am continually amazed at what the human body can do, I choose to love my body for its ability and not its looks. I’m continuing to take things slow, focusing on rest and doing what I can with each of the 7 pillars without taking away from my time with bubs. If I look after myself, it’s easier to look after my little one.
I’ve definitely had my challenges over the last 4 weeks... Sore nipples at the start (and occasionally now too), times when Matty is at work and little one just won’t settle so I’m holding her to soothe her for hours until my feet hurt and my eyes won’t stay open, but I choose to focus on the positives and remind myself of this amazing mantra: “this too shall pass”. It’s all part of the process, it’s just not the stuff I choose to share as often because I am present with it at the time and then move on from it.
Hit me with a ☀️ or 🌳 if you’ve managed to get some outside time this week!
These last couples weeks have been hard. Like, HARD. Like, newborn hard. First I was sick, then Elliott, and now Ethan. This was my first time seeing my little baby sick and it was heartbreaking to say the least! Throw zero sleep on top of that and we have all been out of whack. But! It is so important to me to not just get on here and complain/bitch about everything. Even on the nights I only get an hour of sleep, I’m still so excited to see Elliott in the morning. Even on days where I didn’t want to get out of bed, I still do it because nothing means more to me than snuggling this little babe. It’s easy to only talk about the negative things, especially when life feels really overwhelming, but Elliott really does make it all worth it. This whole motherhood thing is HAAARRD AF, don’t get me wrong, but there’s still joy even in weeks like this ❤️
Today I asked the mamas in my private Facebook tribe, what they wished someone would have told them about becoming a mother. A lot of moms shared great insights we could all relate to, including these:
“I wish someone would have spoken more about postpartum anxiety or depression.
That someone would have been more open about a c-section and what it does to your body.
I feel like no one talks about the REAL until you're desperate and looking for answers.
I understand that people don't want to be discouraging however I do believe it's nice to know a little bit about all areas.
I also wish someone would have told me about that wack 6 week check up the doctors give you.
And how IMPORTANT IT IS TO FIND YOURSELF A COMFORTING MAMA TRIBE! I'm forever grateful for this group.”
Is there something you know now that you wish you knew then? Share it with us in the comments 👇🏽
“No two women will experience PPD/A exactly the same. In fact, the symptoms can vary widely. Some mothers can’t stop crying, others never shed a tear. Some can’t find the energy to get out of bed; others can’t seem to slow down. What they all share is a feeling that “something isn’t right”. “ -Info taken from http://postpartum.org/services/
I wanted to share this on here in hopes of encouraging some of you mamas! ✨
I recently had the opportunity to have my story about Postpartum Depression & Anxiety featured in the most recent issue of @thebadassbirthworker.mag!
As someone who has always loved to write as hobby, it feels surreal to be holding a published copy of my work.
As someone who suffered from a mental illness, it feels exhilarating to be on the other side sharing my journey- my victory.
As a Believer of Jesus Christ, I am humbled to stand as a testament to the Lord’s goodness and faithfulness. These days were the darkest, ugliest, most unflattering days of my life but I will forever keep boasting about what the Lord did in my life and the power of his work in me for HIS glory. 💗
Shoutout to my girl @jarcher57 for teaming up with me to submit some photos for the feature! 😘
I could have easily stayed home. Indie could wake at any time for a feed, I’d get all sandy, there’s a tonne of things I could get through, but I didn’t. The excuses that stop us from doing things that could be really good for us have to go.
The beach was so revitalising. Spending that half hour with just Simon and Luna in the sun, with my feet in the sand and sea was just what I needed.
What’s something nice you could do for yourself today? It could be as simple as making yourself a cup of tea and enjoying it.
Take my encouragement to do something - big or small and let all excuses to not do it fall away. xx

A bit of hump day action to get those glutes firing! 🍑🔥
Try this little sequence today. You don’t need a barre. A chair or kitchen counter will do just fine! Repeat on both legs for an amazing glute burn!
*This video is sped up
Points to remember:
👉 Fold your arms over the barre and gently rest your head on your arms. Try to keep the shoulders as relaxed as possible and down away from your ears.
👉 Bring your feet below your hips, bend your knees and stretch your working leg behind you. Make sure it is parallel, NOT externally rotated (this is particularly hard for ballerinas! 🙋🏻♀️)
👉 Whilst lifting your straight leg, imagine your big toe is trying to reach for the wall behind it - as though you are stretching your leg from out of your hip.
👉 Lift from the GLUTE. Think of squeezing it to lift your leg.
👉 Keep your upper body as still as possible. The work is coming from your glutes, but your abs will also be working hard to keep you stable.
👉 Keep the supporting leg bent throughout the whole sequence. You’ll feel a serious burn in your supporting glute which you won’t get if your leg creeps up to a straight position!
If you want to make it even harder, do it on relevé (lift the heel of your supporting leg). 👊💥
Let me know if you do this workout. Happy hump day! 🍑

You never know what a Kanga class is going to bring! Before everyone arrived today, I just couldn’t decide on a warm up track - too fast, too slow, not fun enough, can’t be by Roxette.... so many decisions to make! It was really getting to me 🤪
So when these gorgeous mums arrived and we started chatting and catching up from the week that’s been, I soon remembered that our class is much much more than the warm up track, the number of repeaters we do or how long we can hold a plank for!
Kanga is about support, fun and connection. Yes, fitness is the core driver of our class, but it’s the social and emotional benefits that cannot be underestimated. We love each other’s company and often we (ok, I) have to be reminded to actually start the class!! I was so happy to have had little Jory ask me today to carry him, he hadn’t been worn in ages but it gave him a safe and calm space to chill 😍 and he was so calm, I felt each of his 13kg alright!! I loved how Stacey shared a really important message about baby brain and that there is hope for us all in the long run! Plus a cool song recommendation 😊
Each class we share together is a valuable opportunity to connect and just be you! We all get the craziness of long nights, early mornings, weird toddler behaviours, teething, strangers touching your children and giving you random advice - it’s a roller coaster! Thankyou for being with us and sharing the journey together!
I tell you what, one thing I was not prepared for postpartum was the realisation of how unconditioned my body is 😣
I thought I was being realistic in my mind of how long it will take to get my strength and general fitness back but ... I was wrong & as someone who lives and breathes fitness this was hard to swallow.
The first day back I completed 20 squats with 2 x 5kg dumbbells and I literally struggled to walk out of the gym - coming from squatting 80kgs comfortably I felt like such a weakling. Not to add the pressure of wanting to come back to teaching ASAP and seeing my members (and even some other instructors) who seem to think I’m some kind of unicorn and asking when I’ll be back 😶
I spent so much time after this thinking, how I needed to pour more energy into my training then I took a step back and looked at my beautiful baby girl ... ladies if you are coming back from having a baby, remember YOU CREATED LIFE! Our bodies are insane with what they can do, so appreciate your body, be kind to yourself and appreciate all that you have, not what you have lost.
Safe to say I have a long road ahead of me, but I’m ok with that, because having Bill is 1 million times l worth it and I wouldn’t change any of it for the world 🌎

I just want to say YES I have real clothes. 🤣
This transformation photo makes me so happy, to see the glow I see now from back when. I have mentally changed my mind set of a better me because I WANTED to. I I remember taking this photo on the left and felt so ugly when I looked at the camera. The photo on the right was at my 10 year class reunion and I felt on top of the dam world.
This life may not be for everyone, but it sure makes me feel good.
To change one’s life:
1. Start immediately.
2. Do it flamboyantly.
3. No exceptions
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
Have you ever gone on vacation and thought, why can I eat horribly when I’m on vacation and feel fine, yet when I try to eat the same way at home it never ends well? Or why do some weeks I feel fine without sleeping much, while other weeks poor sleep completely wrecks me?…It’s the Stress Bucket at work!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you think about stress, think of it in terms of - how full is my bucket and how can I help empty it? The contents of your bucket changes daily. This is why some days you can handle a certain stressor, and other days you just can’t.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you’re thinking about optimizing your health, think about it in terms of these stressors that fill up your bucket. Which ones do I have control over, and which ones do I not have control over? Focus on making small changes with the stressors that you can control, to help empty out your bucket.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are 5 you can make right now:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) Eat a blood sugar balancing breakfast // Don’t put your body on that stressful blood sugar roller coaster first thing in the morning⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) Focus on high-quality food // Whatever small changes you can make in this category will make a significant impact on this bucket over time⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) Improve your sleep quality // Using blackout curtains, magnesium spray, essential oils, mouth taping, a bedroom air purifier, sleeping with the window cracked, blue blockers, etc.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4) Splash cold water on your face in the morning // Cold water on your face helps tone your vagus nerve, forcing you into a more physiologically relaxed state⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5) Get in quality hydration everyday // 1/2 your body weight (in #) in ounces of water + some unrefined sea salt + mineral drops to get the full effect⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here’s the truth: optimized, sustained, long-term health comes from practices like these. Small, cumulative changes everyday that free up space in your bucket.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Full post is on my blog erinsimas.com. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tell me - how do you free up space in your bucket?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the past month and a half I've been doing the Arbonne Clean Eating Challenge. While grocery shopping today, I looked down and realized just how much progress we've made in our diet, and how much I actually look forward to eating healthy food now. I've lost 10 pounds so far and each day the numbers on the scale go down further. Instead of just doing this challenge for 30 days, I've decided to keep going and make this into a lifestyle change. I feel better feeding myself foods that actually serve me in the long run rather than just satisfying my cravings. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me, but I am definitely an Arbonne believer now! If you want to learn more about the Clean Eating Challenge or if you're interested in joining me, send me a pm. ☺️

There is a voice who lives inside me. A voice with a greedy appetite, who voraciously feeds off of my despair and weakness. A dark voice who whispers it’s lies in blades so that each one of them cuts through my soul. It’s a voice comprised of the people who should have protected me, but didn’t—a corrosive poison to my happiness and joy. But I am working on keeping that voice at bay. More specifically, every Tuesday morning I join other mothers as we discuss our anxieties and feelings surrounding postpartum issues in my “maternal mental wellness” class. I’d like to say I do it for myself, but I’m not there yet. But see this face? I do it for her. I do it so that this voice never, ever slips outside of me and affects her. I do it because the greatest gift we can ever possibly give to our children is our own healing. And if you have a voice that whispers the same lies to you, I encourage you to do the same. You are so very much not alone. #postpartum#ppd#ppa#postpartumanxiety#selfcare
REUSABLE MENSTRUAL PADS // pretty gross right?? Well, most women will use around 10000 pads and/or tampons during her menstruating years and it will take a few hundred years for tampons and disposable pads to break down in landfill. So every disposable pad and tampon (and its contents) still exist somewhere in our earth...Reusable pads don’t seem so gross now do they?! .
To use our pads, simply wear as you would any type of pad. When finished wearing it, simply rinse under cold water until the water runs clear, machine wash with similar items, line dry in the sun and reuse. #easyas123 .

Last week I was asked the question “What is it that you want most?” My response- I want for my daughters feel safe. Not just physically in their environment but safe in their emotions, in their relationships, In their bodies and in their voice. As I’ve let that question marinate with me. My dreams for my girls continues to grow
I wish for my girls to experience love in both its ebb and flow phases.
I wish for them to overcome challenges with intelligence and grace and for them to believe in the healing power of ‘again’ or ‘next time’ when they fail
I wish for them to be confident, to meet fear often, and to find courage on occasion, because then they’re working outside constant comfort and security.
I wish for them to believe in who they are and the power of their tiniest contributions.
I wish for them to be rooted in empathy and compassion for the world around them.
I wish them to be kind and generous, to want to make a palpable difference to the lives they cross
Those things require time and commitment from me as their parent.
They require me to be the best and most authentic version of ‘me’
They require me to be open and to hold space for them to be themselves
They require me to step back when they have their own battles to fight, when they have their own wounds to heal, and they require me to know when to fix, and when to hold.
They require me to have endless compassion, to rain love and understanding and acceptance on them whenever I have the energy left over, and especially when I don’t.
Teaching then how to design lives brimming with meaning, connection and value is a monumental challenge.
I’m still learning how to get there myself.

Between work and working out I feel like I basically live here. 😅

“I am not knocking self care. It IS important. Mothers do need to make sure to give our sympathetic nervous systems a break. We do need to take time to set goals, breathe, and meditate. However, we need more than self-care.
It isn’t enough to take care of everyone else and ourselves too. We need support. This means to support each other even if we disagree. Motherhood is hard and doing it alone is even harder. It is hard when you are struggling with your child’s behavior. It is hard when you feel you don’t fit in. It is hard when you don’t have a tribe to help you out. It is hard period.
Be that mama that takes time to give some of yourself to others. Offer help, provide support (not necessarily advice), sit with someone in the darkness, don’t be afraid to help others through hard things. Look around, there is always someone to help. The weight of motherhood is heavy. ♥️” REPOST: Love this by @movementmatters !!!!
Happy one week to the best little Dotori around ❤️ My heart is bursting and full and I still can’t believe you’re mine.
I wanted to share a few things that have happened in this first week.
This past week has been hands down harder than anything I’ve ever done. Nothing in training comes close. I look back at intern year and the sleep deprivation I had that year and now laugh at what I thought was so hard.
I knew it was going to be a lot of sleepless nights. But what I didn’t expect was:
1️⃣ How intense recovery is. I sustained a very bad injury during labor, and it has been eye opening to be a patient going through recovery. Walking, sitting, moving around at all continues to be a challenge. Relearning bodily functions has been a challenge. Wound care takes up a ton of time. I don’t feel like myself. I vastly underestimated how much care I would need and how much time it would take for me to feel better.
2️⃣ How clueless and helpless and overwhelmed I feel. I have so much support, my husband, my parents, and our nanny, and despite that, I still feel like I don’t know ANYTHING about being a parent. Everything is new and there’s no textbook or manual! My type A personality and need to be in control have been tested this week.
I’ve been texting with all my friends who are moms (thank you guys!) and looking at advice on doctor mom Facebook groups which have been helpful. Thank god for community!
3️⃣ How emotional I am. The whole week any little thing sets me off. I’ve had breakdowns every single day. My dear friend Tope who is a mom of two and doing her urogyn fellowship texted me a reminder to please be kind to myself. And I’ve been repeating it like a mantra. That and “It gets better” and Philippians 4:13 (I can do all things through a Christ who strengthens me).
Everyday presents new challenges and I’m learning that the human body and new moms in particular are more resilient and strong than I had ever thought.
New moms out there: I see you and I am in it with you. We are going to get through it together.

Grief. I’ve been thinking a lot about it. I’ve always associated it with death but I am realizing that I have witnessed grief in many forms without an actual physical death. The aching, sorrow and mourning for something still living is a unique kind of grief, maybe one we feel shame for. Loss of a friendship, health, a job, a marriage, a life you dreamed of for you or your child. No one has died but yet it’s a deep sense of loss and of longing. I’ve been there and I revisit it in different ways and I know grief in some ways exists for us all. One of my favorite quotes of all time I found when I had experienced my third miscarriage reads “Grief never ends… But it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith… It is the price of love.” I have lost many things in my life that have not died and I have wanted to stay stuck there but as I honor it, hold space for it and give myself room to move through it I realize that even the deepest grief is the price of love and even when it’s gut wrenching would always be a chance I am willing to take. Whatever form of grief you may be experiencing I hope you feel held and loved and validated in knowing it’s okay that you’re sad to have lost something or someone you loved or longed for. You have all the time you need to heal, take it, ask for it and I hope tonight you are reminded of how deeply loved you are. Xo -j

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 6 months since this photo was taken. In some ways it feels like yesterday but in other ways I don’t even recognize this person. This was taken in the peak of my anxiety, weeks after coming home from the hospital. It was such a scary time. So I created a video all about my experience with postpartum anxiety in the hopes that someone watching it will feel...normal. I can’t promise that the tips I give you (which helped me cope) will make it any better, but I sincerely hope that by watching you’ll at least feel seen and heard. If you are or know someone who is going through it right now, please feel free to share with them too ❤️ Were all in this together ❤️ Link to video in my bio. #postpartumanxiety#lifeafterbirth

я просто хочу, чтобы женщины уважали женщин
почему-то когда женщина шеймит женщину мне особенно больно. хочется потрясти за плечи и глубоко в глаза заглянуть ‘сестра ты ли это?’
это мое тело, я решаю что с ним делать. как выглядеть и чем наполнять
это мой ребёнок, я знаю как ему сейчас лучше и как мне следует его кормить, и где, и сколько
это мои чувства, и я имею право их проживать - не справляться, уставать, не чувствовать любви, бояться, считать что жизнь кончилась
если при проживании последнего накладывается ещё и общественное давление ‘плохая мать’, ‘а вон Ленка родила и ниче с троими справляется и ты терпи’, а ты при этом варишься в кругу дом-детская площадка и забыла, когда последний раз мыла голову и выходила в люди, то возможно постродовая депрессия уже рядом
информационное поле, в котором я живу, меня выбивает последние пару дней
мне больно от того, как некоторые люди набрасываются на кормящих мам. оказывается столько людей считают этот процесс противным/сакральным/стыдным. и в целом набрасываются на мам, которые с малышом хотят продолжать жить активной жизнью. нечего детей таскать, дома сиди. ибо нехуй [главный аргумент]
и вчерашняя новость о москвичке, выбросившейся из окна вместе с двумя детьми от послеродовой депрессии. ком в горле. ведь этого можно было избежать, ведь она пыталась подать сигналы, что она не справляется
вижу небольшую связь общественного давления в этих ситуациях
какая-то абсолютно тупая сложившаяся в постсоветском пространстве установка о материнстве
что это? привет из совка, или недостаток эмоционального интеллекта, или недостаток знаний, или отсутсвие эмпатии у людей, или иногда привычка лезть не в своё дело
если хотите увидеть о чем я говорю, и градус неадекватности людей, то сходите в комментарии к @pinsiberia , которую попросили выйти из зала в Третьяковке, когда она аккуратно кормила грудью. но дело не в ситуации, а в реакции людей. я просто вахуе. так нельзя
а той несчастной маме можно было помочь
пожалуйста обращайте внимание на своих друзей молодых мам, они проходят непростой период и не всегда у них хватает сил это переварить в одиночку
как же больно сейчас от всего. как же хочется обнять всех женщин
