Disruption provides opportunity for vulnerability. Vulnerability provides an opportunity for authenticity. Authenticity makes genuine connections. Sometimes the best things in life are unexpected, unplanned, and unexplained.Read More
This year in honor of World Prematurity Day, I joined forces with Carters in a nationwide initiative to surprise and delight NICU mamas with pieces from their new preemie line. Carters provided slogan-ed onesies, I hand-wrote notes of encouragement and understanding for each mama, and the Northside NICU granted us access to deliver goodies and chat with the daytime nurses.

Shortly after delivering Channing, I got connected with an awesome company specializing in women's recovery pants, SRC Health. I will admit, prior to trying a pair for myself, I was a bit iffy on whether or not recovery pants really worked.

In the first few weeks of my recovery, I spent more time on my feet than expected. With a baby in the NICU, I had parking decks and hospital hallways to traverse multiple times every day. My SRC Health Recovery Pants helped provide support especially in the early days; additionally, as long as my pants were clean - I barely noticed the discomfort of postpartum contractions at all. The only problem with my recovery pants, I only had one pair!
The SRC Health team created a fabric that offers insane compression without restriction. Additionally, the fabric blend used in the recovery pants returns to its original size and shape after wash & wear.
