"The idea of offering Postpartum care to mothers was sprung from my journey of motherhood. During the time when I was about to give birth, my own mother was in surgery and I knew I had to take care of myself without her help. I created a holistic recovery plan for myself one month before, using the acquired knowledge I have learned, and the advise of my aunties, mothers and grandmothers. The birth of our daughter was strenious and long, and I was immensively grateful of the advanced planning to assist my recovery as my husband and I are taking care of our newborn around the clock.
This has been a continuing inspiration for me to start these services when I meet mothers and we come to the conversation of our own journeys through recovery. Often enough we discuss the limited knowledge in this field and how important it is for women to be supported during such a life changing moment being a mother and a wife. " - Frances Ren Huang
