I started my eco-friendly journey back when I was working for Whole Foods Market even before I was a parent, but that's not the case for everyone. It was a slow process for me, and it's totally ok if it is for you too!
H - Herbs for Healing
In our modern society, it is the expectation for a new mother to bounce back almost immediately and get back to “normal”. In the U.S., for example, most women only take a 6 week leave from work, if they’re even fortunate enough to take that. Often times, due to the lack of the village, the new mother is left at home to fend for herself while her partner goes back to work a day or two after the birth.
Ladies, we need to take whatever length of time we need to heal. Period.
