Becoming a mom is exciting, exhausting, amazing, and overwhelming. This is the single BEST piece of advice I was given as a mom-to-be that saved me in the first week of motherhood.
A few weeks before I had my first child, I was talking to a friend (who had just had her first baby a few months earlier) about all my excitement and fears about what was coming. During that conversation, she gave me some advice that ended up being my lifeline the first few weeks of motherhood. To this day, it’s the single best piece of advice that I was given while preparing to meet the little boy who turned my world happily upside down.
Today, I want to share that advice with you in hopes that
if when you find yourself overwhelmed by all the changes to your life, your emotions, and your body that first week of motherhood, you can find a little hope.
