Postpartum Realness: Human Connection


As a new mom, or a mom in 2020, getting access to human connection in the way that we're used to often proves difficult. We struggle to maintain friendships, overthink the way we form new friendships, and often have no sense of navigating it all. It often becomes a process of meeting online friends, neighbors or mothers with similar stories, circumstances or ideas. And that's ok. Historically, we scoff at building connections online or through a screen. While it is true that there is nothing like face-to-face contact, for so many with small children, this proves next to impossible. (Cue: Quarantine 2020....-2021??) In this time of social distance, I am so grateful for the age of technology to allow for other ways of connecting, sharing and bonding.

I never would’ve imagined that some of my deepest, most frequent human connections would be with my clients this year. 🗣👥🗣

Even though the conversations and support are largely one-sided, the human connection sure isn’t!

I’m so grateful that in 2020, while I can’t be as physically close to my friends and loved ones, I am continually filled up by sharing the joys and even pains

of the amazing clients I work with. They show courage, strength, and compassion, reminding me each day of the importance of showing up fully. 💜💙❤️

I am truly thankful for the opportunity to witness human emotion, growth and perseverance. What are YOU thankful for?
