Putting together a reliable support network is a really important step for new moms to take before becoming parents. In this episode, I’m bringing you an amazing woman, Tessia Watson, the author of the international bestselling book, Rejuvenated Mums Make Happy Kids who shares her journey into parenthood and talks about why a support network is essential for new moms.

Tessia is a big advocate for new moms to create their support network to ensure they are well supported and to appreciate that “it takes a village to raise a child”.

I found this excerpt from one of Tessia’s blog posts really hit the spot and summed up very well for me where she’s coming from – “Birth is like a very big car accident. And as soon as this accident is over, when the recovering part of the process should begin, you are expected to be the main carer of this tiny human who was also in the car accident.”

The bottom line is that new moms can’t do this journey alone and need a support network!
