Mamá Crush Miércoles
I am going to start a series in this blog-space where I will feature/give a shout out to/gush about/love on chingona women and mothers in my community. I am defining community in the geographical sense, but also in the larger sense. I got through some really tough times in my pregnancy by simply talking to and reading about other women's stories. Listening to, reading and learning about their experiences lifted me out of the darkness of self-doubt and fear during a time that was supposed to be one of the happiest of my life. More on that another day...
As a brand new mamá, I really wished for more spaces like this. It turns out, though, that every milestone and event comes with its fair share of worry/fear/guilt/questions/etc. I can't wait to continue to learn from these ladies whom I admire so much.
Stay tuned for my first featured mamá!
