There are a ton of resources out there for how to deal with baby stuff after you become a mom, especially for the first time, but there’s not a whole lot when it comes to moms caring for themselves post-baby.
In this week’s episode of the Baby Rabies Playgroup, my guest Jill Simonian, author of the brand new book, The FAB Mom’s Guide: How to Get Over the Bump & Bounce Back Fast After Baby, shares her advice on developing resilience in mind, body, and spirit.
She has a contagious positivity about parenting and I think you’re going to love what she has to say on the topic- including an anecdote about how Russell Brand changed the way she thought about being a first time mom. Whether you’re a first (or fourth!) time mom you’ll want to watch this episode.
This week we’ve paired up with Jill and another amazing brand to bring you five chances to win. One winner will take home a copy of The FAB Mom’s Guide AND a Black Orchid Soy Candle from Bright Endeavors.
Bright Endeavors, based out of Chicago, is dedicated to helping young mothers. Here’s a little more about their cause:
Bright Endeavors is a social enterprise that employs young, often adolescent moms (many of which have never held a job nor had a role model to explain the importance of an education or a job) to hand craft sustainable soy candles with 100% of proceeds going back to the program. Bright Endeavors uses locally produced, non-genetically-modified soy wax for all of the candles, all fragrances are phthalate-free and they use cotton-core, paraffin-free wicks. The program also uses recycled glass containers.
