It’s no secret that new moms are faced with their own unique set of challenges. It helps to have the support of others to ask questions and give and receive advice, especially if you don’t have your own support system nearby.
There are so many questions that can arise, and having someone there to listen to your struggles can provide the relief you need to know that you’re not alone. While you can always contact your care provider, fellow moms often offer a different perspective. They are there in the trenches going through all right alongside you!
