​When I was pregnant, so many women in my life talked to me about what to expect, and loved sharing their stories about their pregnancy, delivery, and the aftermath. The one thing that was truly downplayed was just how out of whack your hormones will be in the weeks after delivery! I had the baby blues, bigtime. What I want other first time moms to know is that it's NORMAL, and it's okay! It doesn't mean you love your little one any less. Luckily I have a support system consisting of an amazing husband, family and friends that understood and helped, no questions asked. Eventually the clouds cleared and I can focus on being my best self for my son. It takes a village!
