The Transition to Motherhood
The transition to motherhood is magical and beautiful, but also emotionally challenging. Your attention is focused on learning to meet the needs of your new baby while physically recovering and learning so many new skills: feeding, diapering, soothing, sleeping, what all the sounds mean. It can feel overwhelming and it is so easy to lose ourselves as women in the process of becoming a mother.
Nicole Landry, owner of Oh Mother Care Kits, a Canadian subscription box service, describes it as a reality check that can sneak up on you: “…it happens easy enough, new moms will completely neglect themselves in their quest to meet their baby’s every need. In many instances, they have to hold their bladders, delay their showers and forgo brushing their teeth. It’s inevitable that self-care takes a pretty severe nose-dive as a new mom. However, some gentle care and attention is necessary and possible.
The postpartum body has been through a lot of changes, transformations and trauma. New moms need to heal! They need care as much as their babies. With little time to focus on themselves, new moms need support from their loved ones; gentle reminders of their value and worth and oodles of love and encouragement.”

Nicole has curated the Oh Mother Care Kits New Momma Care Kit to help women meet these needs.
