" I remember my transition into motherhood so vividly. It is a complete reset and rebirth. I studied and studied to prepare for the birth I wanted to have, but it never crossed my mind to prepare for a new me. During the roughest parts of my postpartum anxiety, I truly found my love and gratitude for plants. Herbal medicine helped me with nutrition, balancing my post-pregnancy hormones, supported my son’s intense bought with eczema and so much more. I became obsessed with natural remedies and realized so much of what our elders and ancestors taught us were rooted in plants and sustainability. I felt so full and was put on a beautiful path of self discovery and community care."
