Ignoring Your Own Self Care? It Can Get Pretty Ugly.

"Ewww! That's disgusting!" Those were my kids' words when they saw the decayed and rotted tooth that I held in my hand. And trust me, it looked really gross. I like you guys, so I will spare you a picture. "Hold up!" you're probably thinking, "How does a blog post about self-care involve a disgusting old tooth?!" Well, this is what a complete lack of self-care looks like in my life right now - an extracted tooth. Or, I should say, looked like because never again will I ignore my own needs when they are so clearly demanding my attention.

Self-care is self-preservation. If I was your postpartum doula, then you should definitely know this by now. Rising above the pitch of newborn cries and peeking through the cobwebs of endless sleep-deprivation, I hope I said this loud enough and often enough for it to stick.
