I’m Stephanie, the mama behind My Littlest Spoon. I’m still figuring out this whole motherhood thing, and I want to share my transformation with you. It’s not all unicorns and rainbows…I’m laying it ALL out there.
Rewind to November 6, 2018. Childbirth changed me. Everything in my birth plan went out the window…but I was empowered by the experience. I never understood how fiercely capable I was. If I am capable of childbirth, I am capable of anything. I can make a difference and influence others. My story is relatable and I’m motivated to help like-minded individuals feel understood.
Mental Health is my enemy. I am actively in treatment for postpartum depression and anxiety. I work my ass off at it everyday, but I’m thankful for the endless support that I have. My husband and daughter are truly what keep me going on my lowest days.
My intention is to share it all with you; the good, the bad, and the ugly. A blissful pregnancy doesn’t guarantee that motherhood will be glorious. This courageous mama was born the moment Aspen came into my world. Still, I am no one special…I am just like you. Follow along in my journey and you will see that light can emerge from the depths of darkness. We are all capable of happiness. Depression or anxiety is not who we are. I will show you precisely who I am. Will you join me?
