In 2019 I had my son, left a job that I loved, & moved my family from NYC back to my hometown in Missouri. I believe that it takes a village to raise a child and wanted my parents and siblings to have a hand in his upbringing — as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins...you get the idea.
Before his birth, I had been warned that postpartum depression could be triggered as the attention mothers receive during pregnancy is almost immediately shifted to their baby. I was lucky to have a good experience, but knowing to brace myself for this swift change during a very emotional/transformative/exhausting time in my life was really valuable. Even small moments of self care and helpful gestures became significant, and this was when I knew I wanted to create a space focused on caring for parents during and following childbirth.
Like many expectant mothers I spent HOURS (probably days) researching items that were safe, effective, and necessary. From food to beauty products and clothes to clutter - everything was inspected under a new lens. As time passed my research continued, and Birth Order was conceived as a way to put what I’ve learned to good use.
