The hardest time and darkest time of my life was shortly after Milly was born. I couldn't accept my labor/delivery. it was the middle of December and freezing, so I felt like a prisoner in our condo. my body felt awful. my anxiety was at an all time high. I couldn’t move my body the way I used to and I felt alone.⁣

I needed help and I remember thinking that I wished there was a place I could go where there was a village of people to support me. I had a vision of a community for new moms where they could get access to physical therapists, trainers who knew how to work with women who had c sections, a nutritionist, doulas, and a really good mental health therapist and more. ⁣

At this time, I was crumbling. I was lonely, exhausted, going through an identity crisis and trying to figure out how to get my strength & body back all while trying to keep my little human alive.

Well, now I get the chance to build that community and help other women who are experiencing all of the things that I was. I am building that community. I’m excited to be bringing together experts that can help Moms. The women who are participating in my Pregnancy & Postpartum Series have access to these experts for support. 

It takes a village to grow strong. that community and village is what we are building with Milly Grey Movement
