As we were designing our AW20 Collection, Loré had this concept of capturing the daily rhythm of a new mother in morning, noon, evening, and night. So much of the postpartum experience exists in that daily rhythm when our senses are on hyperdrive as we meet the needs of a newborn, so this idea of honoring how much is put into every single part of your day as a parent really inspired me as well.

While this is a time of letting go of what we thought our “fourth trimesters” after baby would be, there is still so much space to create something special and possibly even more beautiful and healing than you had planned. The key? Trust that this postpartum experience is exactly the experience you were always meant to have and that it will be for your ultimate good. Whether you are one week postpartum or twenty-one, jump in and find areas where you could incorporate some care.

Our most productive action comes from feeling empowered and just focusing on taking the next right step.

Knowing what to say when a mama has suffered a loss can feel so tricky that we sometimes end up saying nothing at all. But showing our support means everything, so we asked mamas who have been in the trenches to share what was most comforting or helpful for them on their journeys. Here’s a solid resource to turn to next time you need some inspiration or guidance. (And seriously how sweet is that husband? 😭) Feel free to add additional ideas in the comments, too.
