The most difficult part of birth is the first year afterwards. It is the year of travail- when the soul of a woman must birth the mother inside her... it is a private and silent birth of the soul, but it is no less holy than the event of childbirth, perhaps it is even more sacred.
Supported Mamas are Confident Mamas
Hannah Murfet and Ashley Demmitt are sisters (in-law) who joined forces to hold space for women and families as they navigate the birth and postpartum experience. Yes, it takes a village to raise a child, but it also takes a village to raise a mother. Women need a system of support as we go through the induction of motherhood -- welcoming a new life, sharing our birth story, processing a surplus of emotions, and facing our insecurities.
We are here to fill the gap that exists in our culture. We are here to normalize birth and postpartum support because we know that supported mamas are confident mamas.
