Self-care as a necessity of motherhood (and womanhood). To kick off Maternal Mental Health Month, we'd love to invite you to participate in our 'Healthy Mom, Happy Babe' challenge! 

By sharing your story we hope to show the real face of motherhood and help as many mothers as possible to practice self-care and to stop feeling so guilty about it.

Pledge now to share your story & collaborate on wellness content during the month of May. ⠀
