sherisad I'm gonna shoot for an updated, mama edition. Here goes @ebonydaliaross 1. I never felt real sisterhood from other females in my life until I became a mother 2. I have an urgency to accomplish things now in having my son. It's the push I really needed. 3. I am extremely passionate about breastfeeding, baby wearing, gentle parenting, cosleeping etc but realize these things aren't for everyone and would never judge someone for not doing them. 4.Nursing my babe for the first few weeks was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, giving birth included. 5. I think I was slightly depressed not being around my family and friends back in Brooklyn after having him. I knew I might feel down a bit, but not having that physical connection really took a toll on my spirit. So glad I was able to go and spend almost 2 months with Seiji. 6. I had real body image issues after having him, since there seemed to be no physical proof. I have no stretch marks and lost all the weight and the extra pounds I packed on just living here. It got worse a few months ago and I'm now back to my middle school weight (I think I was thick for a 12 year old). I've learned to accept it now and being in NYC helped with that too. 7. Being pregnant helped to resolve my little girl issues tremendously. 8. I never wished for a boy or a girl. I just wanted a healthy baby. 9. I hated dealing with midwives here (minus my two boos). They were always so apprehensive with me and gave me the run around in ways that didn't sit well with my melanin. 10. I had a home birth that was supposed to be a water birth, except we didn't have time to fill the pool! After spending all that money on everything. Pool parties!! 11. I don't know how people don't think back on their doctors etc. My doula is family to me now (even if she's a bit out there). I update her all the time and share this deep bond with her. 👭 12. I had an excellent pregnancy and hope any future ones are just like that, minus a few things. 13. I am working on a website for mothers and I can't wait to share it once it's ready! 14. I love that motherhood consumes me. I'm learning how to balance more me time(cont below) 2d
