Society tends to paint the period after you have your baby as a magical, surreal time, packed to the brim with baby snuggles, smiles, and lazing about the house since you don't have to work.
If you’ve ever had a baby you know the truth.
Postpartum is hard.
Like really, really hard.
Your hormones are crazy, your body is doing weird stuff, and your baby is not a fan of mom showering, mom eating, or being held by anyone other than mom.
People say they are going to be there but in general they only seem to want to snuggle the new baby, and only during the times when you generally would have been able to set your newborn down and accomplish something. Instead, now you’re stuck entertaining guests.
But what if I told you there was a postpartum fairy godmother?
What if there was someone who could be there day or night, or even both?
What if that person could sweep in and make sure you got a shower and a nap, all while making your other kids a quick lunch and throwing that load of laundry you’ve washed three times now in the dryer?
What if instead of entertaining this person, you could do all the things you’ve been dying to get done?
What if this person listened to EVERYTHING you had to say and didn’t judge you for any of it?
What if this person supported your parenting philosophies instead of showing you the “right” way to do everything?
What if the “help” actually went home when you wanted them to?
Wouldn’t that be magical?
Now, what if they were only a phone call away?
