Welcome! My name is Amy and I am so glad you are here!
When we brought our daughter, Evelyn home from the hospital in 2017, I had no idea how much our world would be flipped upside down and then ran over as new parents.
I mean, talk about hard!
Sure, I had heard it was hard but I was completely naive and unprepared for this new role.
We had taken classes, decorated a beautiful nursery, and researched and purchased a billion different baby products. We had tons of friends who already had kids, we had a really solid marriage, and we had plenty of helpful family members nearby.
What could go wrong?
It didn’t even take me a whole week to breakdown and start sobbing over my new life. I think I cried almost every day for those first few months. Nothing, and I mean nothing had prepared me for this.
I didn’t have postpartum depression. I just had a newborn.
So I had to figure out how to navigate my way through this new life. And it took me several months before I got my groove back.
I wanted to create this site to give new moms a space to feel less alone. We have all been there and somehow we made it through, and you will too.
The goal of The Postpartum Party is to help new moms in some way, even if it is small. We’d love to add humor to your day, let you know you aren’t alone, and provide you with tools and resources so you can get through this very difficult time.
I’m so glad you’re here and know that I’m giving you a big virtual hug! You’re going to make it through this mama. I promise you that!
