In honor of Labor Day (and because we absolutely love birth stories), we're sharing stories from our own deliveries. From barely making it to the hospital in time to laboring for four days, from home births to inductions, from two amniotic sacs to secret salads, Kindred Bravely moms get real!

#MomLife: Shattering the “Front Porch View” of Social Media Motherhood

Sarah, our Social Media Manager, invites you to look past the social media version of motherhood. She writes, "Before having kids, and even after my first son was born, I had this image in my mind of what our days would be like and what kind of mom I would be... I was a mess most days, just trying to cover the basics and make sure everyone was fed. Sure, I’d have my shining moments where the baby would be smiling just right or we managed to make it to the zoo for an afternoon, and I would always make sure to document it on my favorite social media channels as proof. I was afraid to let people into the real...

Brave New Motherhood

A maelstrom of heightened emotions and changing hormones coupled with new mom exhaustion and a sense of isolation can make sanity feel elusive. Though you might encounter unexpected challenges with your growing family, you’ll also find yourself changing in amazing ways.

Finding Community

I know a lot of moms who struggle to find community. They had a community before they had kids, but when they became mothers, things changed. Perhaps some of their friends weren’t ready for the new dynamics. And that’s fine. Friendships evolve. I also think most moms want a community experiencing the same life events as they are. My ideal community, and what I think we really need, is a combination of people who’ve known us forever and people who are in the thick of it with us. I asked our followers on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook for their tips on how to build community.

Kindred Bravely's Third Birthday

Celebrating the milestone of my company turning three is so unreal for me. In reflecting on our journey together so far, we combed through our social media posts - our Kindred Bravely family photos, if you will - to pull your favorites from Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. I hope you will remember them as fondly as I do - and feel as excited as we are to continue building this remarkable community of women encouraging women for years to come.

The Many Faces of Postpartum Depression

Whether from the stress of labor, a genetic predisposition, or even a perceived failure to “live up to” what you believe your motherhood journey should look like, postpartum depression can make you feel hopeless and broken. The good news? While what you’re experiencing can make you feel isolated, you’re not alone.

KindredMamas: Building a Village

As a new mom, I quickly learned there were two absolute must-haves for me: comfortable clothes and a caring community. I was fortunate to find several encouraging mom groups that were local to me: Stroller Strides, MOPs, and most importantly, a breastfeeding support group, but I knew several women who didn’t have those resources close to them.

#MomLife: Angels and Rainbows

In this guest blog, Kindred Bravely's Pinterest Manager, Shantel, details her story of losing her first pregnancy, "What happens if you lose a baby before you even get to tell anyone you're pregnant? Who do you turn to? How do you keep your composure when no one knows you are hurting deep inside? I never thought I’d have to find the answers to those questions."

#MomLife: Finding Hope after Loss

In this guest post, Sarah, Kindred Bravely's Facebook Manager, writes about finding her way through the grief of her miscarriage. "It wasn’t until we were in the dark exam room with the ultrasound flickering on the screen above me that I felt my heart sink a little. The little bean on the screen had a flickering heartbeat, but the size and shape looked much different than what I’d seen with my previous pregnancies."

My Breastfeeding Journey

From the time I found out I was pregnant with my first, there was no doubt in my mind that I would breastfeed. As a mom-to-be, I already wanted to provide my baby with the best quality everything, so I read everything I could on the subject. Positions, signs of a good latch, how to tell my baby was getting enough. Nothing prepared me for the pain.

Nothing Lasts Forever

In the moments I’m frustrated or overwhelmed, I remind myself to look at life from my children’s perspective. Since they’re seeing everything for the first time, life is either the best or the worst. They can only react to what’s right in front of them.
