Being Prepared for Postpartum
After I had my son, I expected the feelings portrayed in countless Instagram photos. Contentment, wonder, and pure joy. When I didn’t feel those emotions, I worried that something was wrong with me. The exhaustion and discomfort seemed to overpower one of the most important moments of my life.
Instead of realizing that my body needed care, I neglected it further by pushing my own needs aside as I focused solely on the needs of my new son. I felt pressure to be strong and to push through my misery because “that's what moms do.”
I want to challenge this societal expectation by shifting some emphasis back to the mom and her needs during one of the most challenging experiences a woman can go through.
I want to do this by providing moms with the products they need to heal, find comfort, and feel beautiful during the postpartum period. Lavender Meadows Co. prides itself in creating the best skincare when pregnant and the best skincare when breastfeeding. They also help fade hyperpigmentation naturally, and are great skincare for hormonal acne. All made with Mommas in mind.
