We see you.
We see how you think about what to make for breakfast (and lunch, dinner, and snacks).
How you keep up with doctors appointments, even when they are virtual.
We see you doing art projects. Sensory play. And when you're not looking and the whole toilet paper roll is unraveled around the house (which totally counts as play).
When you look into switching care providers and consider the options of where to give birth.
How you research developmental milestones, coordinate evaluations, and schedule speech therapy appointments.
And listen to podcasts about how to handle toddler tantrums.
I see you reaching out here - for advice, for connection.
How you think about family traditions, order gifts, and provide donations to families in need.
We see you in our circles taking the time to hear others and share your experiences of carrying the invisible load of motherhood.
This work may be invisible to many, but not to us.
We see you. We're here with you.
We celebrate the invisible load you carry every single day.
Thoughts on pregnancy, birth and motherhood.
