You’ve got a lot of changes happening right now as a mama-to-be. And while we trust that you’ll make all the right decisions, at one point or another, you’re probably going to need a little pep talk -- or should we say “Pregnancy Prep Talk”? Lucky for you, us and Citibabes have got you covered with a can’t-miss prenatal event on March 25. We’ve lined up some of NYC’s best Pregnancy Prep experts to talk you through your pregnancy, trimester by trimester. You’ll learn what kind of food will give you a nutritional boost while growing baby from Silver Spoon founder Michelle Marinis; the where, when and for-what’s of registering from Cricket's Circle founder and CEO Rachel Blumenthal; and how to prep for labor from Fifth Avenue Fertility Acupuncture founder Angela Le. There’s also massages, mocktails and our Well Rounded NY signature Bump Envy photo booth sponsored by Blink Buggy. And you're guaranteed some DIY inspiration with decor by the talented Rebecca Conroy. Just for rsvp’ing, you’re entered for a chance to win a 3-month membership to Citibabes and other big baby prizes from Nuk, gDiapers, Momma's Jewels, gDiapers, Cranial Cradle and more. And everyone goes home with a sweet gift bag packed with prenatal goods. Sign up for the event here.
There's the magazine cover photo of the new celebrity mom glowing as she looks down at the beautiful, sleeping baby in her arms—and then there's real life.
In real life, postpartum mothers are just as likely to be wearing diapers as their babies are, and bumps need months to deflate.
That's why we're so grateful for the way celebrities are ditching damaging narratives about postpartum perfection and embracing the messy authenticity of new motherhood. Thanks to these modern mamas, the rest of us are seeing our own experiences reflected in pop culture, and that lets us know we're not alone.
