We may be sheltering-in-place, but that doesn’t mean we can’t also celebrate-in-place. These quarantine-friendly ways to treat yourself on Mother’s Day require little to no advance planning, so you (or your partner 😉) can easily pull them off. I’m for sure doing 4, 6 (lol) and 9. What about you? 💆‍♀️🏽 You won’t regret any of them! 💕 Wishing you a special, memorable, relaxing Mother’s Day!

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 brains are made to protect us from danger, which is amazing, but they are not very good at recognizing when it is time to calm the freak down. Make sure you are in the driver’s seat, not your primal brain. How can you do that? Be intentional with your thoughts. Read empowering thoughts like these. (“Take it one day at a time.” is my favorite.) Read them again. Talk to yourself as much as you listen to yourself. You’ve got this.

This is for the postpartum mama, but really it works for everyone.✨ We may be physically quarantined but we don’t need to be emotionally quarantined. It’s easy for me to not reach out to other people when I’m having a hard time because I don’t want to be a “downer” but two things. 1 / self-isolating emotionally is only going to create more unprocessed emotion that WILL build up and 2 / when you share what you’re going through with others, it gently gives them permission to as well. EVERYONE is going through it right now, so don’t feel like you need to put on a happy face for yourself or anybody else. 💛

Thinking of you, pregnant and postpartum mamas.💛 Hope this helps manage your mind a little bit through this time. Your brain may want to tell you that everything is an emergency, but our brains just trip out on the unknown. Our most productive action comes from feeling empowered and just focusing on taking the next right step.

As a new mom, you already have a heightened awareness of what colds are going around, but with the rampant spread of Covid-19, it’s easy to go from heightened awareness to full-on, “let’s get to the bunker” paranoia. You have enough going on, so we did the research for you so you can take the precautions necessary to keep you and your little ones safe, without having to sift through the bad information or fear-mongering coverage online (and from your mother-in-law).
