The Ultimate Postpartum Giveaway

“The first forty days is a period of time unlike any other.  In other times, and in other places around the world, a postpartum period of healing was expected + allowed.  After the rigorous act of birth, it was considered critically necessary for the whole family, that a woman be given the first forty days to heal + rest.  Other people in the community would feed her, nurture her, and take all responsibility off her plate so she could focus on one thing only;

Transitioning healthily + happily from expectant woman, to Mother.

It’s time to start a new tradition – a movement – of postpartum care!  One that honours the past + that will carry us, and our children, more kindly into the future.” 

~ First Forty Days, Mother Bees Heng Ou
