You know better than anyone the physical and mental changes you go through when you become a mom. No matter how many kids you have, you’re always a new woman, and a new mom, after each one is born.
Sometimes hormones, emotions, time for healing, and responsibilities can creep in and take over our own sense of self-worth and purpose after birth though. I’ve totally been there! Mom’s deal with a ton of responsibilities and an even bigger mental load.
My guest on today’s episode is Brookelynn Espegard. Her postpartum story recounting the physical and mental challenges she experienced after her second child are sure to resonate with LOTS of mamas out there.
Those postpartum challenges led her to create the innovative new leakproof nursing bra and Booboos brand. She is the creator/founder of Booboos Bras– the first leakproof nursing bra. Yep, I said leakproof!
Let’s face it, there are some things about the postpartum period that can be frustrating and even embarrassing. Even though those changes are really just part of the normal and amazing changes that your body goes through to keep another human alive. And leaking breastmilk all over your shirt, even when you’re not near your baby is one of those changes. Take that “picture perfect Instagramable motherhood”!
Through her innovative nursing bra and the Booboos Bras brand, Brookelynn’s passion is empowering women and mothers to be the amazing women that they are. To feel confident and comfortable, and to love themselves as much as they love their babies.
Booboos is helping to change the conversation around motherhood! Mark my words, Booboos brand, led by this passionate and resourceful Mama, is one to look out for.
I also LOVE the brand’s mission to empower, support, and celebrate the strength of mothers. That’s what we’re all about here at Gotcha Mama too!
