Nourishing the Transition into Motherhood
BY MAYA KHERA
Maya Khera had two very different birth experiences as well as two very different postpartum experiences. She learned first-hand how essential it is to mother the mother and with her second baby, she made sure to give herself the space to heal, bond, and return to herself. The interview with Maya takes us deep into questions of balancing life and family, reconnecting to our identity as individuals, as well as nourishing the mother that we now are, and so much more.
Having dropped the need to conform to an image of myself as the eternally bountiful and heroic mother, I have become quite the expert at switching off the noise of the outside world and savouring the magic and beauty that lives noisily under my own roof.
