  • Have you heard of the first 40 days? It’s the period after your child is born where rest and recovery are essential. Many cultures view this period as a time where all hands are on deck caring for the new parent and baby while they recover and bond with baby. In today’s society, many people spend this time with little to no help, isolation or even having to go back to work early. •
•
Swipe to see a list of a few action items you can do to prepare for this transitional period. I will be adding more birth self-care and education to my content because I believe this should all be common conversation whether you are parents or not. •

  • I am safe. As womxn and femmes of color, it is so hard to feel safe in a world that wants to deny your existence, deny your rights and deny your freedom to just be who you are. I am a ball of anxiety simply because I exist in a world like this. This affirmation means that I am a safe space for myself and others. I cannot control the outside world and I should not live in fear of it. •

  • Here’s an easy and accessible art activity you can do. Many people call them vision boards but I like to think of them as “inspiration collages”. All you need is paper, glue and magazines! Go in with no expectations or plans and flip through and cut out what speaks to you. Glue them on based on what your intuition tells you. No pressure! ⁣
⁣
When you’re done, you’ll have a beautiful visualization that you can put on your wall to remind you and influence you. Here’s one I did today with my coworkers on our lunch break! What other activities do you like to do? ⁣
