“Just because it's common to feel depleted in early motherhood doesn't mean it's normal. We're conditioned to see exhaustion as a badge of honor (especially on social media), not realizing that there's another way. I am living proof that there is. You CAN thrive in early motherhood, all it takes is the courage to put yourself first.” - Amber Frauenholtz
