If You Don’t Have a Tribe, You Can Hire One
You’ve probably heard it once or twice before: “It takes a village to raise a child.” Perhaps a more appropriate phrase should be: “It takes a tribe to support a mother.” So what happens when you DON’T have a village or a tribe? Sadly, it’s far too common for many mamas to experience a lack of support very early on in their motherhood journey.
Sometimes it’s because their partners don’t understand the extent to which pregnancy and birth have on a woman’s body and mental status. Other times it’s because you may not have family or friends around. Regardless, the important thing to remember is that YOU, mama, are NOT alone. And yes, there are ways you can build your tribe of support by hiring these individuals to fit your needs! Here are some of the best ways you can build your tribe of support.
