Same Questions. Different Mamas.

I asked 3 of the same questions to a variety of different moms. The one thing that stood out for me was the similarity in emotion for question number 1, and that's really what I was hoping for. We see so many beautiful, flawless and (seemingly) well rested photos on Instagram but forget to look at, talk about, and celebrate the surviving and rawness that is having a newborn, and all that comes with it.


Meet Janet, first time mama to now almost 6 month old baby boy Alexander.

How would you describe the new + unexpected life with a newborn in a few words
Life with a newborn = scary & tiring, but wondrous

How did you survive
Survived through love & adrenaline

If only you knew then what you know now
If I only knew then to reign in the self expectations & don’t sweat it! You won’t be able to do everything perfectly as you expected, really however you learn and get through it is perfect, the way that it should be.

Mama Janet

Reign in the self expectations & don’t sweat it.
